One thing I'm frustrated with is a lack of a good storage solution for tiles in certain games. For example, Carcassonne only has enough room for most (not all) the tiles, and even with The Tower there's not enough room for all the tiles (but that's because Abbey & Mayor filled up the Tower, IIRC). Alhambra, IIRC, doesn't even have any real tile storage!

So, what do you fellow gamers use to store their tiles? I'm trying to see what my best solution is for storing tiles for Carcassonne (including spinoffs), Alhambra, Caylus, and other games that make use of those cardboard tiles.

Plano 3600 boxes work well. They even have dividers that can be used to split up different kinds of tiles or other small components. I bought quite a few of them on Amazon (about $6.50/ea) and use them for games with lots of small components like Galaxy Trucker, Warrior Knights, and Agricola, but they would work fine for straight tile games too.

I take the useless inserts from games and use that cardboard to create tile trays. Here are some before and after pictures of my Wasabi and Caylus trays.

Tuckboxes!!

Many tile games have downloadable tuck boxes under thier entries here. I'm quite taken by Tom's (henrysunset's) tuck boxes for my Carcassonne tiles.
