There was a great geeklist or maybe just a forum post by someone that was resizing their boxes to save space. I need to do this because my house is becoming straight-up unmanageable and I don't really want to get rid of any games. I've searches these forums, but I have no idea where these things are. Any help, friends?

I don't know about a geeklist or forum post, but I do recall this video by Daniel Solis resizing his For Sale box:

Fit it in a deck box
Games that fit in small boxes


In the DIY links page - there's a section about making boxes
DIY Links


I recall a geeklist by someone who was standardizing their boxes to regular euro and / or kosmos two player ish? but I cna't find the link quickly. will revisit.

If space is at a premium, get rid of boxes altogether. Bag components, keep in plastic tubs.

I've found myself in the same quandary and have started making some following this tutorial: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1579299/diy-graphics-wrappe....

You can see some of the originator's finished boxes here: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1649754/my-custom-box-proje...

The best thread I recall about doing this, with an extreme example:

OGRE DE in a normal-sized box!

That would be fine except I like the look of the boxes so I want to do my best to keep that.
