I sleeved all my cards last night after cracking open the box, and then stopped.

At a minimum, I gather the smart thing to do would be to get one set times four for each mage knight consisting of
- basic action cards
- miniature
- hero card

I'm new to games with fragile plastic components, and lots of components, and I want to be able to carry this game around to different locations to play. My main concern is keeping the miniatures of the heroes intact, but I was hoping people could share how they pack all this up, which inserts (if any) they are keeping, etc.

Keep everything.

Put the starting hands, character cards and associated chits for each character in a seperate bag each.

Store under the mini insert.

All other cards in the insert area. This fits with thinner sleeves, thicker sleeves you'll probably have to ditch everything in bags.

I also sleeved all my cards right away when I got the game. I love the finish on those cards, but unfortunately they seemed the kind of cards that will go bad really quickly if left unsleeved. The only insert I took out was the one with all the site chits etc. Those I stored in baggies and tucked away under the insert for the miniatures. The sleeved cards fit quite nicely in the leftover space. I too was a bit worried about the miniatures and that's why I wanted to keep the insert for them.

I kept the part of the insert that the minis are stored in and pitched the rest. I sleeved all the cards and made tuckboxes for them, then put all of the cardboard and mana into a Plano 3500 box. I used a couple of pieces of foam to hold things nicely and plastibanded the terrain tiles. The result:



Nice and neat, and perfect for travel.

I removed the insert for the chits, and store the cards sideways in the square slot. I keep 3 of the character cards and tokens under the minis and the rest go in the space where the chits were. My cards are sleeved in thick FFG sleeves.

I threw away the insert (mine was all torn apart in a few places anyway) then, using plasticard, I created a rack for all the different decks.
The tokens, minis etc are kept on a plano box.

I threw out all but the largest insert. I bagged player cards, skills and command/level tokens for each character and put the rest of the cards in the insert.

This container has enough space for a city or hero figure and chits in each large space: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stack-On-10-Compartment-Storage-Bo... I use the back two rows to store enemy chits and the front row to store shields. I put the artifact chits into one of the front corner spots on top of the shields and it all fits fine.

It's still a tight fit once everything is in, but I feel better knowing the miniatures aren't squashed in odd positions.

Tossed everything, bagged each character set (mini, cards, chits), city set (cities and city cards), enemies chits, and each deck into its own bag. Clean, tidy, works great. Can't see any upside, at all, to the insert. Perhaps a couple expansions in the future when it's actually a tight fit.

I threw away all the inserts and made tuck boxes for the sleeved cards (used Strange Eons, FFG sleeves are too big for the lidless tuck boxes in the files section.) I also used a Plano 3600 for all the bits and figures. My only concern is with the map tiles moving around the box---but then again, I don't see this game traveling all that often.

They are at least better quality than most cards these days. I still sleeved mine though because they tend to stick together due to being linen quality qnd rough all over.

Each Hero with their own container, plus a tray for the enemies, and a stackable dilly for the crystals. Shields and Turn marker in a smaller container within each Hero container.

Thanks for all the ideas! I'm getting back into boardgaming after a long time being away from it, and I had no idea there were so many cool ways to store components.

I got some organizers from Canadian Tire (big hardware/kitchen/automotive/sporting goods chain store in Canada) tonight, but will be looking for the other stuff mentioned here to get my tiles and cards organized.

After admiring the cards that came with Lords of Waterdeep, I was quite disappointed with the card stock on these myself. Sleeved after the second game.
