So, I'm a bit of a "collector" and I imagine I'll eventually have all the expansions. As a result, I'm looking for some storage options for long-term.

I was wondering if anyone has any storage suggestions that can store everything from the expansions. So far, I've found these two:


This

And

This


However, the first one says it's "base game only" so I'm concerned about space for the cards, and the second one only lists a few of the expansions.

I'm wondering, for long-term, if anyone has better suggestions for storage.

I'll wait until they stop doing expansions for this game. Then I'll start looking for a storage solution meeple

Note this is only $140 if you purchase unassembled - warning that shipping is killer because it's large and heavy.

This is the only one-stop solution I'm aware of that handles everything out today (including Dreamlands) with space for even more.

Go7Gaming has inserts for the base game and expansions. If you sleeve and have everything you may need the base organizer and two expansion ones though I think.

This.

The thing about the Go7Gaming system is the insert is designed to fit into the base game box and also fits a few expansions. They also sell expansion modules which fit in the expansion boxes and hold whatever else is released. Every other EH insert will eventually become full but with the Go7Gaming inserts you can buy them as you need them.

I use the inserts from Daedalus to organize mine. It requires two boxes (the main EH box and one of the big box expansions) but it fits everything with the exception of Cities in Ruin, which I do not have yet.

Main box. Fits base game, MoM and Forsaken Lore:

Big box expansion. Fits all expansions except for Cities in Ruin:

I really like the inserts, they've been a lifesaver. However I just received and put together the expansions one today, so it'll take a second for me to see how much I like it. But so far I'm pretty impressed, and it has (at least for now) solved all of my storage issues.

That looks damn awesome.

Was this custom made? Or did you order from a store?

In the top level I have all the tokens, bits, small cards and character/ancient one sheets. In the bottom I have ALL the regular sized cards and my bag of monsters. All I did was take a bunch of flashcards I wrote labels on and made 2 cuts to fit them between cards for organizational purposes. I have every expansion released and I am comfortably able to handle maybe 3-4 more big boxes. A great feature is that all the storage trays are removable so I can bring stuff closer or rearrange the whole thing as I see fit. It's cheap too!

I went with the very first version of the Daedalus insert and I liked it a lot. Then I shifted it to the upgrade when it was available. It served its purpose fairly well, but the problem was that each card insert was designed for a specific set number of cards in some cases with little room for expandability.

I eventually switched over to the go7gaming inserts and found that I liked them more. The mdf is sturdier, and there are plenty of dividers for the cards. For now, I store everything, sleeved, in 2 EH core/expansion boxes. There's quite a bit of box lift due to the nature of the expansion boards, but once cities in ruin comes out, I'll probably use the 3rd box (and 2nd expansion insert) and I'll have more than enough room for additional expansions and upgraded bits.
