Hopefully I’m not the only gamer who has a mild case of OCD about keeping game components organized. I found myself ordering large quantities of ziploc baggies. I usually end up removing the plastic inserts from game boxes and than using a combination of ziploc bags and other storage to organize the bits.
The ziploc bags work ok, but I’ve found something even better. The issue with ziplocs is that you generally need to dump them out before play, and put everything back in the bag at the end of the game. When I ordered my custom set of Agricola clay components, they were packed in these great tiny plastic containers. They are called Lock Tight Compartments. They come in a couple of different sizes. The medium and small sizes are perfect for storing game components.
They also offer a large size container that can fit many of the smaller compartments. Check out the picture of my Agricola components fully organized in one of the larger boxes.
What’s really cool about these is that you only take out the ones you need, and you can leave the bits right in the boxes on the table without needing to dump them into messy piles.
