how do you keep all the cards?

do you keep it all inside the Core box ? do you keep AP cards inside the AP box ? or do you throw away the little AP box? How about KD and Hobbit box? what you use them for?

do you separate the player cards, the encounter cards based on their AP ? or you lump all Player cards accodring to their sphere , thus having 4 separate deck of card? do you keep all heroes in single deck ? do you separate each encounter card based on their icon?

when you travel do you bring all cards or just cards that needed for specific scenario that you want to play in your travels? what kind of bag you use to carry them? just rubber band them together? or use some kind of card holder album type?

do you ask permission from your wife/girlfriend/partner when you buy expansion for lotr? do you hide your purchase from your spouse?

regards

I found some awesome card boxes at a mart store- 500 card count that sleeved cards fit nicely in. I keep my two core set encounter cards and my kazadumm expansion encounter cards in one. I keep the entire mirwood cycle in another. I have the whole dwarrowdelf cycle in the last. The hobbit part one and two wll fill the fourth and I have more for the upcoming cycles. Speed is the primary goal for my storage. The more quickly i can get the game set up... the longer my wife's attention span lasts:whistle: with this system I can build all the quests really fast. I keep all the boxes in a shoulder slung bag. along with my binder of sleeved cards. I keep them in set order numerically.
This helps when Im serching online for deck ideas. cardgamedb.com is great because their decklists require the card number- so ime not searching endlessly for a particular card. My binder also holds my rules, quest sheets, and playmat.

how do you differentiate between cards from different AP? after you finish playing do you sort your cards back into their respective AP ? or just lump them all together

I have all expansions, including the hobbit. All cards are sleeved and stored in the initial box.
I've sorted them this way:
- Each sphere individually
- My usual decks
- Each AP with its encounter cards, quest cards and printed aid bound together
- All encounter cards stored based on their icon.
- Neutral cards together

This dramatically cuts down on the setup time. After we finish a game, we sort the cards back.

I keep the tokens outside the box since they are always in that bowl, no point in taking them out. When I travel I just put them all in a zip bag, outside of the main game.

This was my setup a couple weeks ago:



I've since purchased 2 more Black containers, they hold the Encounter cards. Basically it's 4 containers on each side, with some cards in the middle (I think I need to more black containers to make it right, but then I'll need another box. Good thing I got a second core set, eh?).

I have my player deck in a deckbox. Also each sphere of influence in a separate deckbox. I keep each scenario in its adventure pack box. All the core set, print on demand, and deluxe expansion scenarios are kept in the core set box together with all the quest cards. When I decide to go out with the game I simply grab one scenario, all the deckboxes and sleeves for my friends. After I help them build a thematic and enjoyable deck we tackle the scenario together a couple of times.

Two core sets + all expansions + some fan made ones.

My gaming buddy has the same thing so I only need to bring my player cards over so I just have them in them in 1 box.

Are you referring to the binder? By placing them in numerical order I don't have to remember which card goes where. FF did a good job in giving each cycle its own symbol so I can quickly put cards in and out. The card pages I use are really good for sleeved cards.
I also forgot to mention the dividers for my encounter set boxes- I cut the front of the AP boxes off and glue them the dividers. I usually pre-sort the cards for the next time I play- there is enough room in the boxes for the "Ultra-Pro Deck Protectors". I keep the next quest I want to play pre-built in those.
sorry for being long winded...

This is what I use.



These boxes are for sale almost anywhere. This way I can really quickly make decks and grab quests.
The box product number is: BCW-3200

I have plastified the quest deck fronts and made the dividers myself. I need to fix the tactics one though, as it says spirit now.

I store all of the cards in the Core set box.

I made a custom box for travel which allows me to take two decks to use, the threat trackers, tokens, heroes, and up to four scenarios to play.

One of these days I will have to upload a picture of my custom divider system. Each different set of cards has its own designated location which makes putting different scenarios together very quick and easy.

They are fairly expensive, as sleeves go. $8-10 or something like that.

It's the one I was about to buy, can I ask you:
How many sleeved cards you can store in? (100-200 for each per compartment?)
Is the one with foam or cardboard insert? Do cards hold their position even when you carry it?

p.s.After all a picture with cards will answer most of my questions as well

thanks

Those are the FFG card boxes. You will find them in most FLGS and online stores.

This. I have 2 more black containers now, so the box is full with containers and the middle has the current overspill. I haven't integrated The Hobbit yet, and when Numenor comes out, I'll probably start using my second core set box.

I picked up this box unfinished at Hobby Lobby for $10(40% off). I gave it a stain and then a couple layers of clear coat.



I picked up some pine looking wooden planks for dividers at Hobby Lobby and then cut them to size.



I really like this box as I can store the cards along with the adventure instructions all in the same place. The instructions make great dividers as well. So in that first row I have the base set in the back, then the 6 expansions. Next row is Khazad Dum plus it's 6 expansions. Third row is the player cards. Not in the box are Osgiliath, Lake Town, and the Hobbit. I can fit all the cards in this box, but not them and the components, so I bought another box and created a second one(not done yet). I figured that I could put all the player decks in one box along with the components and then store all the adventures in this box. I already cut another piece of pine to add the fourth row of cards and they fit great.

They had a bigger box that would have held everything, but I wanted something that my kids could manage. :)

I would buy the 2 rows long box... Even if it was existing in larger size, like 3 or 4 rows
