Won't happen. FFG don't assume that everyone buys everything, so why would "everyone" need such a thing? Besides, when you create the big box in the lifetime of a game and its expansions? Might you have to create a series of big boxes and then at some point create a mega box to consolidate all those big boxes?

Found the perfect box on eBay. Pine with lower section and 2 upper trays with dividers (may subdivide these as well). Perfect for every thing. £25 including p&p. Although cards have to lay flat in bottom. Still really pleased with it.

Why not? AEG did it with smash up and cutthroat caverns had an expansion in a larger box to fit everything in. Just having a bigger box would really help to fit everything in as I suspect the game has outgrown their original plans for it releasing it in its current sized box.

I also suspect most people will have one or two expansions as well for the game.

Because they never did, and they never showed to care for such solutions. They have HUGE games in their catalogue (e.g: 6500 cards for LotR) and they never came up with any storage solution despite many wanting one.

But there's plenty of other solutions available on line, from DIY items to luxury delights such as this one.

In any case, it's enough getting a couple of UltraPro deck boxes and you're set for all the cards in the game. There are double deck boxes with a removable insert for the tarot cards, and mini american cards can be hosted face-down in standard Magic decks.

As Scarlet Witch says: FFG are not AEG and if anybody understands how to implement and sell expansions, it's FFG (by contrast, see the furore over the Trains, Planes and Automobiles expansion for an example of AEG's prowess in the field of expansions)

You had me at Elder Sign Box, but lost me at 90 pounds.

goo Check out the folks at The Broken Token. They don't currently have a box insert for this game, but you can vote on their page for a new box replacement, or insert that you would like them to make

I just have everything in bags by type/expansion and have all of the components in a plastic bin with a lid.

I love the box in the link! Super nice!

I think I've seen similar projects using wooden dividers etc, but the issue is that the main box is just too small to accommodate much beyond the base game. Add in an expansion (or sleeved cards) and you're stuffed! (literally!)

I'm still searching for the ideal solution. I've tried a wooden box off ebay which fits everything but is quite large. I've tried printing tuck boxes for the cards (unsleeved) and putting the tokens in plastic card boxes. This seems the best compromise so far.

Or a new edition of the base game in a big box.
