Yeah, I never play at home. I always am carting my stuff around. This is what I've been looking for. I hope it lives up to expectations. From what the pictures show, this isn't really for the home player. This is definitely a travel case. And I'm glad.

Right on. We already have a decent home solution. Even the original box is fine if you don't sleeve. The only reason I bought the BT insert was I wanted to sleeve since I saw how beat up the cards were getting with early use.

I've gotten some details on the compartment sizes from Ultra•PRO.

Each of the 2 rows on top holds 550 sleeved cards or 425 double-sleeved cards.

Each of the 6 drawers holds 160 sleeved cards or 125 double-sleeved cards.

The total capacity is thus 2060 sleeved cards or 1600 double-sleeved cards.

A complete Wrath of the Righteous set runs 1170 cards (plus 9–13 promos, depending on how you count Ekkie); the other APs are in the same ballpark.

Thanks, Vic.

Any word on dividers? Will there be something available as an additional product to separate the cards appropriately?

Disappointing the two rows don't hold a fully sleeved set. I suppose you could throw a card type like locations or adventures/scenarios in a single drawer, but this seems to be less and less like a product I'd be willing to pay for. Sad for something I was so looking forward to.

I have inquired.

Before you dismiss it, you might consider how you actually play.

• You start with just the ~400 B cards, and likely the 110 C cards... but you immediately set aside ~15 card decks for each character playing, along with their character, role, and token cards. Assuming those go in a drawer, your "box" area probably has less than 450 cards. (And if you put the characters, roles, and tokens you're not playing with, and all the story cards you've completed into a drawer, all the better.)

• As you proceed through Adventure Decks 1 and 2, you'll add 220 cards, but you'll also be removing several per character into your decks because you gained card feats. Maybe you've got ~650 cards in the main part of the box at the end of AD2.

• When you get to AD3, you'll add another 110 cards, but at this point you start removing Basics from the game (which is to say, you're putting them into another drawer). You'll also still gain the occasional card feat. So at the start of AD3, you'll have ~760 cards in the main part of the box, but that number will go down as you play through AD3.

• Your numbers will get pretty unpredictable from here, with lots of removals punctuated with regular additions. By the time you're in AD6, you'll have added another 330 cards, but you'll probably have removed ~200 cards. I've never done an exact count, but I would guess that my groups probably never had more than about 900 cards in the main part of the box while playing an AP, which means if I'm single-sleeving, I could always fit them in the top. (And since the top actually fits ~200 cards more than that, I could also fit at least 2 class decks—maybe 3, depending on how many boons I remove.)

Also, taking advantage of the Afghanistan principle, you can remove all the story cards, locations, villains, and henchmen from adventure decks 2 and higher as you complete those adventures, which gives you plenty of room at the top even if you double-sleeve, *and* it makes finding the cards you need during setup a bit easier.

Caveat: This works for the AP but not OP scenarios. As long as you can fit the entire set (sleeved) along with any additional proxy cards, I'm good.

Cheers. I'm going to get one anyway, but the better it is the more likely I am to get one per set. :)

Fair enough. Once you account for removals, which I would totally use a drawer for (right now they go to the front of the card type and flipped backwards) it's a good fit. I know and love the Afghanistan principle, but culling those cards takes more time than they'll ever add in setup. All my cards that frequently need searching for (scenarios, locations, henchmen, villains) are alphabetized anyway.

So now my purchase decision comes down to one thing - labeled dividers, keep us updated!


I've already made my own plasticard labeled deviders. As soon as I figure out what sort of image I want on them I'll be adding that also.

I personally might just put all the story cards (adventure path, adventure, scenario, story) in a drawer and just keep what I might need to pull out during the scenario in the top rows.

Yeah, this is what I plan on doing.

Well, if you're only hosting one group with the box, it's even easier, since you can remove all appropriate Basics and elites ahead of time instead of on encountering.

If multiples, yeah, I got nothin'.

CAN you still? They've removed the "Preparing the Game Box" sidebar from the latest OP Guide. Which would seem to leave the removal rules on the AP sheet the only option. I've been meaning to inquire about this...

Somewhere, baby unicorns are crying. Or maybe it's just me.
