Since I got this box:



I haven't had the time to make dividers in order to actually find the cards I need.
This weekend I made my own dividers inspired by the ones ndru made but vertical:



I am about to upload the files for this... I'll post here once they are approved.
EDIT:
Small Cards.

It now looks like this:



I am going to put the manuals in the lid of the box.
All the rest fits into the base games box.

A little comparison:



Well, I hope you guys like the result as much as I do :-)

ps: will keep this up to date...

Way Cool!

That box reminds me of some of the old Dewey index card systems you used to see in libraries. Which fits the AH theme really well. Would you play from the box as is? Just shuffle the cards, leave them in the box, and take out cards as required? I know everyone says how much room the cards can take up when they are all stacked out next to the board, but I think the real room-taker on a table are the Investigators and all the cards that -they- have....

Well,I think I'llmix everything but the Mythos and Other World Cards for know. So effectivly I'll only get those and the allies choosen out on the table. You're right,the investigators take a lot of space, but imagine not having all the locations on th table...That's some space saved

The Small Cards are uploaded.
I am having some problems with the second file (the big cards)...
Is there a size limit? It's 11MB.

EDIT:
Ok, I compressed it. Worked now

f-p-p-m pointed out to me that backwoods country was missing. I just added it to the big card file and it should be there once approved.

I'll try to provide a German version after the weekend.

From a German hardware store named Obi:

I don't think you can get it in the US, but there should be something similar somewhere.
