...or get a card box, like the ones you use to store Magic or Baseball cards, and separate your cards with an index-card file system. It makes the game smaller and easier to transport, and quicker to set up and tear down. A lot of people here on BGG have done so; I myself use two cigar boxes for the same effect.
That's an awesome idea! Thanks!
Going to try it with one of my old, old mtg boxes and see if I can fit the base + intrigue in one box.
