I may have missed this, but was wondering the purpose of the foam spacers in the box. They take up probably 1/4 to 1/3 of the box, so was wondering if they were for future expansion or just to fill space based on the other sizing.

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

I imagine you would need the extra space should you opt to sleeve your cards. As it is, I haven't sleeved, yet am only utilizing one of the foam spacers.

Yes if you sleeve, you won't need the foam. I appreciate that there's an solution for both sleevers and non-sleevers and the box is still so compact.

they also keep the cards upright and leave room for an expansion.

I put all the ink, removers and colored tokens in a deck-size tin and put it at one end and one of the foam pieces at the other to protect the cards from being bent by the lid going on. I love the hard score board which will protect the rules from being smushed which is a problem with Paperback.

As suggested by others, both. This game is similar to Legendary, which I love -- you need something to take up the space, room for expansion, but it's variable. So foam works perfectly.

Where did you get the tin? Is an Altoids or something like that?

Has anyone tried fitting both paperback and hardback in one case?

I have a drawer with plastic, cardboard, and metal containers suitable for game bits. When I get a new game that can use one or more, I open the drawer and shop. The runner-up in this case was a bandaid tin of the same size, but the theme wasn't right.

(short answer: no idea)

If you add in the Paperback expansion it eliminates the need for the foam inserts. I am sure there will be a Hardback Expansion as well.

Yes, the Altoids box/can is the perfect size.
