Has anyone found a good way to store the extra tracks for Formula D? The first track that comes with the game fits nicely in the box, but additional tracks just come in a flimsy sleeve.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

My extra tracks live on a shelf standing up.

My problem is that my shelves in my boardgame closet are of the wireframe type: great for boxes, disastrous on unprotected cardboard edges, and far enough apart so that a section of track might slip through.

Ah, I can see that being a problem. Our shelves are wood. No slippage possible.

Right now I've pulled the insert from my box and have the components stored in it. I can fit my boards in there now, but it won't handle another expansion.

This box will hold 5 complete tracks (10 boards).

I travel with mine a lot too, so this is a convenient optirdon I plan on using. You local Office Supply Store should have something similar:

Single board dimensions are 9-5/8" x 8-1/2" x 1/2"

Find a small sheet of metal or wood and put that on the shelf where you store your FD boards.Store them on the small sheet. That should soleve the wireframe problem, I think.

I was going to suggest some kind of document box, but then I read the replies cool
