This game has a huge number of resource chits. Rather than using bags and taking up your whole table with little piles or bowls of resource chits, I have prepared a print-and-fold tuckbox for this game.

User mfaulk80 was kind enough to assemble the box I created for the basic resource types and share this photo.

Images I just took of the second box for the additional resource types.

Detailed Directions:
1) Download latest .pdf file. (links above...)
2) Print all pages at "100%", preferably on Cardstock (for added durability and stiffness.)
3) Carefully cut all pages using an exacto knife. (Scissors probably won't cut it, precision is required.) After that, run a dull pointy object along all folds to make them fold more cleanly.
4) Align the tabs on top of the base, and glue if desired.
5) Begin to fold the main box together. (The tabs go into the notches just like commonly available fold-up boxes for Baseball cards.)
6) Start with both ends, then add the dividers, folding them in as you go. (Note, a little glue from a glue stick is desirable when folding the dividers in half. This makes them stiffer and look better when completed.)

You can print the included lid if you like, or simply put both boxes in a single gallon ziploc bag, remove the air and place in the game box. (If the bag has little air in it, they can't slide out of their rows.)

Full disclosure: Each box will take at least 30 minutes to print, cut, and assemble. The boxes go together nicely, but take time.

If you have any questions or encounter any problems, please don't hesitate to ask here or send me a message.


(P.S. I've also made the extensive set of tuckboxes for Carcassonne and every expansion. What can I say, I'm a geek.)
