This includes all the extras available as of 11/19/2015, except Budgie and Bludle, both of which I regret not having.


Empty Box.



Place the board on the bottom, and stack all of the batter cards to one side.



Add the support crew, Rain Delay, and checklist cards on top of the batter cards. Start a second stack with all of the pitchers.



Stack the Manager Challenge cards on top of the pitchers. Place the bubble-gum count trackers against the end-wall.



Place the dice, strikes and outs counters, and one set of pitch tokens in the empty space as shown.



Arrange the balls counters on their sides in the grooves formed by the other pieces, as shown.



Place the runner and pitcher meeples, and the second set of pitch tokens on top of the Manager Challenge cards. Place the fatigue tokens on top of the first set of pitch tokens.



Side view to show everything flush with top of the box.



Put the rulebook on top.



The lid closes completely.


Of course, future expansions will make this obsolete, but it works for now. Hope this helps.

*fails*

*checks BGG to see if someone has figured it out*

Success!

Ahhhhh someone beat me to it. Very similar to my method. I had even taken pictures but since you were so kind and our methods are similar I'm sure people can follow the instructions. I did include the final results minus the rule book as a reference picture. Here is my method:

1) Put all the foil packaging vertically in the bottom of the tray. (I liked them so I'm keeping them. Feel free to pitch them. No pun intended)

2) Place the board on top. Then starting at the bottom portion of the tray place the expansion card horizontally. (That is the Sentinels and Big Leauge cards) It should come close to the top of the tray.

3) Next place the original game cards horizontally along with the Gen-Con Promos, Rain Delay and Bl├╝dle cards. Again they should come close to the top.

4) Now you have just enough room to place the Solo Game cards horizontally. Your tray is broken into thirds if you have followed so far.

5) I took the large pitcher and batter tokens out of the bags and placed 2 each on top of the expansion cards section and the original game section respectively. This brings everything exactly to the tray height. Combine the dice and tokens all into one bag and they fit perfectly on top of the Solo Game cards.

6) Lastly, I took the Gum Sticks and wedged them between each section of cards to create dividers. You will have to double up on one of them since there are 3. Put the rules on top and close it on up. It make a nice tight and secure box for your game.

I posted in another thread, my layout is similar to Chad's. I haven't opened my two expansion packs yet because they look so nice. I will wait until I am bored with the regular characters.

Below is the pic I took yesterday. Though after playing around with it more I have some minor changes. Realizing I don't need the bag to hold the bits gives me a little more room. I found out I could then put the solo cards on top of the bits. This will help keep them in place while transporting the game. That then leaves plenty of room in the center pile for the expansions.

I am using loose rubber bands to easily keep the pitchers, batters, and promos separated. Hence why I have extras in the box for when I do open the other packs.

I like Chad's solution better than mine, so I'll be adopting it, I think. Thanks for posting the pics.

Thanks Joe! It's funny you say that because after thinking things through a bit more I really liked your idea of separating the batters and pitchers. So I ended up doing the first pile all batters, second pile all pitchers then checklists then support cards. The checklists keep them separated for easily grabbing. Then I still put the solo cards last and the tokens the same as before. And I suppose as Kevin said, the bag is not really necessary so I may be ditching that. I'm not sure why but I always like to keep small bits bagged. But for me personally, I can't use rubber bands. Still using the gum to separate each pile.

My original method was to keep the promos separated but the I realized the checklist would allow me to sort them. So it made more sense for accessibility to separate the batters, pitchers and support. So a nice combination of our approaches seems to work very nicely.

I agree, and when I went to incorporate your ideas, I wound up doing the same thing you did. Bottom of the 9th promotes teamwork! laugh

Didn't think about using the sticks of gum as dividers. Genius. Well done sir!

I got everything from the KS into the box nicely after sleeving the cards with the exception of the dice. I feel a bit like Mr. Creosote.

If the dice weren't so nice, I would simply grab random dice whenever we play. For now, I will simply store the dice in their little plastic bag next to the box.

For sleeving, the larger cards use the green Standard sleeves (Mayday) and the smaller cards use the purple Standard USA sleeves (Mayday): 2 5/8" x 3 5/8" and 56mm x 87mm, respectively.

How many cards are there of each size? I'll get the game added to the sleeves geeklist

I finally opened the expansions. Here's my new pics of the contents of the box. The near stack is standard and big league cards. The center is Sentinels and promos. The far stack under the bits is the solo cards.
