Efficient Board Game Storage
October 26, 2015 (Board Games)
Sometimes you love a board game enough to purchase their expansions. You love it enough to sleeve the cards, separate its various pieces into different baggies, and so on. Then you start running into the problems. You begin hearing “it doesn’t fit in the box anymore” or “it’s a pain to carry 6 different boxes to play this game” or “this game is such a pain to organize”.
Not all board games have solutions, but some certainly do! Take for instance the board game Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game. It’s a fantastic game with at least 7 expansions, but if you own all the expansions you have over 1500 cards to sort into many different categories. To make things even more complicated, players choose sets of cards to begin the setup of the game, but each set has a different number of attributes that you can’t see unless you look at the card itself. A fan took it upon himself to create his own dividers for the game to help neatly organize everything.
One of our community members decided to give it a try and showed us the result. There was a lot of ooh’ing and aah’ing:
Using this, he cut down the number of boxes he needed to carry down to two and everything became neatly organized with important information easy to obtain at a glance. While this example was for Legendary, try searching around and seeing if there’s something similar for your favourite board game!
D&D – Better Maps
August 26, 2015 (RPG)
If you’re like us, you draw your dungeon map on a battlemat and sketch out your world map on a loose sheet of paper. We recently found a great site called Fantastic Maps. This site has tips for your map making ranging anywhere from techniques to show height differences in your battle environment, creating a sketch of a system of caverns for your dungeon delve adventure, or even sharing free world map assets!
There’s a lot of material, so definitely check it out. It might help bring your maps and encounters to the next level!
