I'm reading the rules right now but are not sure how to organize the components for easy setup and gameplay.

How do you guys store the Components, by era?

I grabbed a couple of large bags and organized everything by era.

I built a quick foam core insert for all the tiles, sorted by era. The wooden bits and resources went into a plano box. Don't know what to do with the cards, yet.

While waiting for a proper storage solution (Broken Token? Foamcore?) I'm using 18 business card boxes. The buildings are sorted by type into several boxes, and there is a box for each era's cards and tiles. Plus a box for th basic resources, upgraded resources, sustenance resources and advanced resources.

Here you go.



I scanned and printed each sort of tile and glued the picture below the stored tiles to be able to put them back into the spaces where they belong.

I don't tend to do foam-core inserts because I sometimes have to carry my games in a bag a kilometer to the bus, and then a short walk the other end. Or 1.5 km to a friend's house. So I bagged up hexes and cards by era, starting hexes got their own bag. I bagged up tiles by type. And a bag for the wooden pieces as they are easy enough to separate at the table. It doesn't look as nice as Angua2105's insert but it does the job.

In the meantime I also created a level for the resources (and the market tiles which did not fit into the lower part because I forgot them when I designed it shake). On the plus side: The upper part can be removed from the box (which you can't do really with the lower part because I miss-measured, see comments in image gallery, I'm lousy at measuring)!



@TheLegoPirate: That's a clever idea to put the labels onto the dividers!
