This is the first block game I have purchased and I was wondering how players store their wooden blocks. They seem a little large for trays. I was going to put them back in the plastic bag but I wondered if that would cause any damage to the stickers? How sturdy are the stickers to wear and tear?

This is my first GMT block game, but I have a number of Columbia block games with the blocks bagged up, and haven't found any issues.

GMT's commnets in the game about putting the sticker on right first time suggest they've used decent glue.

I'm storing 'em in plastic bags. I don't move the box around all that much, so "normal wear and tear" is pretty limited.

I have used plano boxes (obtained elsewhere than Wallyworld, as I hate them with a boycotting passion) for my Command & Colors games, but that's more for sorting than out of a desire for protection.

Thanks for the answers, looks like plastic bags should be OK.

Columbia Games ships Victory: The Blocks of War – Additional Blocksets in VHS cassette boxes. Not too bad an idea if you have any old VHS boxes knocking around. I've even considered ordering a few just for block storage.

I use Craft Organizer Boxes from Fashion Tools. (I always find them in the craft section at Wal-Mart.



Most block games fit very nicely in them. This picture is my storage of the blocks in Richard III: The Wars of the Roses.
