I just got War of Indines and have half of it sleeved (ran out). I went to put it back in the box and noticed that the sleeved-cards don't fit on their side (at least with the insert in the box) and they're too tall if I stand them.

The box art is wonderful, so I hope to keep using it, but... I like all my stuff organized and together.

So how do you guys store and organize the game?

Thanks!

I've been told the new Devestation of Indines box will have room for all cards from both sets, so the problem should work itself out in a few months...

I threw away the insert. All my cards fit in the box sleeved along with the tokens and a bunch of d20s to keep track of life.

I give each of the characters a sleeve as well as one each for the base cards and ephemera (Eventually I may individually sleeve cards. The tokens fit in 2 quarter cases, plastic tubes, while the character markers go in a bag.

I then took out the insert, folded the sides underneath and reinserted it, making room for the sleeved cards.

Credits- I got the idea for packing multiple cards in a sleeve from the designer Brad and the token storage idea from my friend islander.

I don't have my cards sleeved.

I cut out the side panels of the insert so there's still the bits on the end (which hold up the board) and a strip of cardboard on the bottom bracing them in place, but I can use the whole width of the box in the middle.

The cards are all in "medium" bead bags from the local craft store, which are the perfect width. Each character's kit + standup gets one bag. Each "basic player kit" (normal bases, Special Action card, timing summary card, life counter) has its own bag. The rest of the stuff... I don't remember how I divided it up, but it seemed straightforward (Ex bases in one bag, Almighty in another, arenas in a third).

With the sides of the insert cut out, I can just fit these in the box lying sideways.

Remove insert

Each character plus standee and token goes in a 3x5 ziplock (as do bases etc)

All fit nicely in the box. I don't sleeve, as these cards are never shuffled, there's really no need

All cards sleeved + each character kit (cards + standee + tokens) in a ziplock.

Insert couldn't hold these, so it's currently sitting on my desk, while I'm figuring if I can somehow use it .

I have medium bags and they feel a little snug, so I'm looking for 3.5 x 4.5" bags, as those are what the promo characters came in and they have a little more wiggle room.

Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?

This is an older pic, the cards have since been sleeved with MayDay Green sleeves, they still fit nicely in the bags also.

I put promo characters laying flat in the middle with the other characters next to them on both sides. Rulebook and board on top.

Everything fits fine, wish I could get that little mat in there too but oh well.
