Before I start punching I'd like to have a plan for organizing them. There are also a number of files for some additional marker counters, and printing out the backside of counters that are double-sided.

I looked thru all the "General" postings & didn't find anything; but I'm sure I recall some posts talking about storage options, from baggies labeled A-Z to tray arrangements.

I use a GMT counter tray for the colored counters (it just fits) and seven zip bags for the named leaders, one per age.

Just a bunch of baggies - one each for each paired set of counters plus separate ones for leaders, artefacts, game markers, etc. And a bunch of extra markers courtesy of user kbernatz...

I'm a big fan of the Plano 3701s and a label maker. I put the label on the 'back wall' of each tray section; makes it easy to find whatever you're looking for.

You definitely need extra markers for forts (10 of each is enough) and disorders (30+).

I use small transparent plastic cups with labels on top. Look file sections for labels. One for each units color, one for leaders per age, artefacts per age, generic leaders, elephants, disorders, forts, elite markers.

We use 8mm d6 to mark disorders with the pips up showing what it takes to remove the disorder and 2 D10 to show current income placed on the empire card.
And suggest baggies for storage.
