Several people have been mentioning that they have found ways to get everything including full OS2 products into just the base game box. Could people post methods, pictures, etc to help out fellow players? As we all know, transport is the weak spot of Cthulhu Wars.
*Please note if you are using a first or second printing box. The box was shrunk slightly after first printing, so this is important to know.
I have my base box from first edition packed to the top with these items:
* 3-5 player earth map and 6-8 player earth map
* Hardcover omega rulebook
* plastic gates
* 4 sets of combat dice (2 green and 2 red)
* Special faction dice
* First player figure of Lovecraft with the lantern
* Punchboard faction sheets and doom tracks
* Plastic ritual of annihilation marker
* 7 playable factions in ziplock bags.
No insert to protect the great old ones. I don't have any neutrals, independent great old one, map expansions, monsters, terrors. I can't fit the Tcho Tchos in there either.
In order to fit this all in it is like playing Tetris. I have to carefully put everything in order, to the point where I fill in gaps between gates with the dice. The factions are in ziplock bags. I leave the bags open and gently shake the box in order for the pieces to settle below the box top.
Based on how much work it is to pack the box and use every bit of space, I don't see how anyone is able to fit more. It doesn't seem physically possible.
