Hi there! I have every box/expansion except for Fear Itself, CA 75th, and SW vol 2.

I have a ton of cards and I just can't justify getting anymore until I can figure out how to fit them into a single box.

What do you do? Is there anything you can recommend for all these cards? Thank you!

You will get a dozen different answers. The EASIEST thing to do would be to go to your local comic/game shop and buy one of the big white cardboard boxes that hold cards. Probably cost you around 8 bucks.

I have mine in the Villains, SW1, SW2, and Civil War boxes. Carry them all in a big duffel bag. A 75 pound duffel bag.

I think using a single box went out the window a few expansions ago. I have the vast majority of my heroes in the main box, with a little spillover to the Villains box along with all the villains and schemes. It mostly works...

Is a two box solution OK?

Heroes in base set box. Ditch the insert, rip two pieces of thin cardboard---think the "boards" part of comic book "bags and boards"---and use the foam dividers to place them appropriate distances from the edges.

Villains, Masterminds, Schemes, Shards, Bystanders, Twists, and Strikes in Civil War big box expansion box.

TL;DR: Runnestrand is right.

Aw, okay. Right now I have heroes and stuff in the Secret Wars vol 1 box and the villains and stuff in the Dark City Box.

It's working for now but 1 or 2 more expansions and it won't work anymore. Getting a big cardboard box is possible, i thought about that. Otherwise, I might just use a third box :/

Yeah, I have mine split between the Core box, the Villains box, and the Civil War expansion box. Inserts keeps it all nice and organized.

I came up with my own scalable storage system that I now offer on my Etsy shop. "One box to rule them all" won't really work on games like Legendary or Dominion where the expansions just keep coming. My boxes stack neatly and securely for easy storage or transportation. And I can customize them for you, too. https://www.etsy.com/listing/271793084/the-nerd-box

My method isn't always practical for everyone, but I have every expansion except Civil War, and I keep all of my heroes and villains in the Dark City and Secret Wars, Vol. 1 boxes. The Masterminds, Schemes, SHIELD cards and whatnot all stay in the box for the core game. I randomize and prepare my games before I leave my house, placing only the heroes and villains we'll be needing in the core box with the other main cards.

If I think we might play an extra, I simply take all three boxes. Those three boxes isn't too much to carry.

I have everything in Villains, SWI and CW boxes. I dream of one day having a more elegant solution.

I bought the broken token inserts for villains and the core box and have all the villians and schemes and such in villians in that box and the heros in core. I seem to have a lot of room for expansions so that is nice. Also look up the divders on the site. They are a godsend.

I have two of these, stuffed to capacity, with everything Legendary Marvel, Alien, and Predator (no BTiLC), sleeved. No room for much else.

Just chiming in to ask about the Artist's Supply Sketch Box from Hobby Lobby? I think I've seen it mentioned before ... how many cards does it hold? Is it not enough?

Plano adjustable deep compartmentalized clear boxes. I started using them for all of my Memoir '44 expansions, and then figured out that you can store cards in them also. They are sturdy and inexpensive at Amazon.

If you have everything, and sleeve it all, youll probably need a 2nd box, or at the very least, the Base Box to go with 1 Artists Supply Case.

I wouldn't want just one box for everything even if there were a way to do it. Too heavy!

That's my feeling as well. If you own all the expansions and you use sleeves of average thickness, we're way past the days of "one box to hold them all" being practical.

I managed to get envy card from every exp to include the 3D and villains stuff and even the f4 set in 1 hobby lobby artist case with the broken token vertical card insert. All the cards are sleeved with penny sleeves and I have laminated card stock dividers as well. Everything fits great but there are 2 problems. First, after adding the deadpool exp I'm going to need another box for the next expansions and second, that box is heavy. I store in on a higher shelf just so I don't throw my back out lifting it. I have not reinforced the handle on the box yet but I'm working on it because the last thing I want is that box to drop.

I use custom dividers from the file section (had that printed out for me).

I keep all of the Masterminds, Villains, Henchmen and Scheme plots (everything that needs to be decided for setup) in the Villains box.

I keep all of the heroes in the two Secret Wars boxes.

I keep all of the core cards (S.H.I.E.L.D agents, officers, wounds, bystanders and such) in the base box. I keep the base box on the table and get cards straight from the box instead of setting up the stacks on the table.
This reduces the setup and tear-down time.

I have all of the expansions except for the out of print one and still have some room for more.
