Hello. After a few years into the hobby, I'm happy to finally order a shelf unit to be made for my board games but I'm having trouble with the measurements. Originally I wanted something like the Kallax with its 33 cm square shaped shelves. I loved how other gamers' board games looked tight fitted in the square shelves vertically without any of them falling open.

However, I only have space for something like this: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40275846/, only I'm thinking of adding two more cube shelves to it, six in total. I did the math and I realized that they'll fit what, maybe 30 games, probably even less than that? I thought that it would be wiser to increase the internal width but I don't know exactly how much in order to keep the board games tight fitted. I have the space of less than 55 cm width for the whole shelf unit.

A lot of the games I own are smaller than the usual large sized games (think Port Royal, Codenames: Duet and Patchwork). I'm trying to keep my collection as small as possible (if it's even possible) but I would love to have some space left for other board games in the future. I would really appreciate your advice. Thank you in advance.
