Hi everyone! This is my first post and actually signed up just to show you the box I just finished for this fantastic game.

I measured and cut each separator by hand plus the labels which I glued on the separators. The task was very arduous but I like the outcome and the fact that it actually looks self-made.


There it is! The fit with three columns and card sleeves is a bit snug but not too tight. Figuring out how to divide the box into smaller sections was more of a challenge but I was able to create simple but effectie enough resolution. No glue was needed and it's still stable enough.


A closer look.


The separators are slightly smaller than the cards to make picking them up slightly easier.


I used different colors for money, points and actions. I could have used even more colors but my wife laughed at having different at all. Notice that the separators are two sided so they can be used both ways.


I have the original game plus prosperity and could fit at least another full expansion in the box. It might take a while tough before I get any more cards. The task was quite a bit more painstaking than I guessed... surprise

Give your comments!

P.S. Yes, I did borrow ideas I saw posted here. They worked nice, thank you!

If you want more pictures, I'll be happy to post them.

Bumping this old thread, as I'm not sure why it hasn't gotten more thumbs (you have one more now.)

Could you give me more information?

For instance, what were the materials used for the dividers and row separators?
How much did this cost?
How long did it take you to do the labels on both sides?
Are you looking into purchasing more expansions, and if so, do you have plans to reconfigure your storage methods?

Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments and sorry for answering this late. I kinda forgot to follow this thread after a while.

For instance, what were the materials used for the dividers and row separators?
I bought the thickest cardboard paper I found from the local hobbyist store, 300g I think. It could have been slightly thicker to make the dividers more sturdy but not much because it would be tough to cut. 300g works fine, no tear or wear so far.

How much did this cost?
Not much at all. With a good pen-like gel glue about 10€.

How long did it take you to do the labels on both sides?
It was an arduous task, I have to admit. I'd say roughly around 10min per each if you count all the measuring, drawing etc.. That times 50+..

Are you looking into purchasing more expansions, and if so, do you have plans to reconfigure your storage methods?
If I'm ever to get another expansion, I will have to make custom boxes too. I might be able to squeeze in another set of cards there but I'm already worried about the weight. Also, having a few one-card-wide boxes would be much more handy to carry around.

Planning, cutting and gluing some boxes isn't a task at all. But I'm not sure I'd be satisfied with some boring brown cardboard boxes. Plus, I'd have to make another set of dividers for the new expansion cards. I can easily see it becoming another much more time consuming task than I originally thought it would be.

But I haven't made any plans or decisions about any custom boxes. Some poker-like case would be nice, or wooden..

While it looks like the OP cut out the long strip that came in the box then taped them down, I urge you to check out Sumpfork's Dominion Tabbed Divider Generator.

You can print out the labels onto the precut Avery return address stickers and they work great for purposes such as these.
