 Well, deck boxes have now been released. Is this what everyone had in mind? I honestly think they look kind of hokey. I can see the utility of it, but if I was going to take the game somewhere to play, I'd just take my whole collection. I suppose it would be different for PvP games. The idea to include the tokens is brilliant, but again, it just doesn't look appealing to me.

Looking at your favorite games, I understand, though if you don't sleeve your cards, maybe you could fit two LotR decks and an encounter deck?  I don't know.  How big is a sleeved card compared to an unsleeved card?  100 sleeved cards should mean quite a few more unsleeved ones, I'd hope.  I don't sleeve anything, so I like to put multiple decks in these kinds of boxes. 

I really like both the token container and the glass front.  Of course, their PvP games use giant boards (WH:I), giant statues (CoC) or both (GoT multiplayer), so I don't know how much I'll use this for any of the LCGs, but it would be great for CCGs. 

Not sure how useful it'll be for board game decks.  I'd have prefered small tuck boxes for unsleeved decks for games like Cosmic. 

Great idea.  I'll see if I can make it work somehow for something.

 Awesome! Those are a great idea, I will definitely buy some. Still don't see the point of sleeving cards, though

 Sounds like a Steve Jackson product: cheap and costly.

Adam,

if I remember correctly, there was a guy over the Arkham forums who measured the difference between sleeved and unsleeved deck. Maybe the sleeved one was 30% bigger, or something like that

Anyway, they look cool. Now I'd really love to see smaller boxes for the minicards. Games like Arkham or Twilight Imperium come with hundreds of minicards, and they're quite difficult  to store properly

Don't care about those deck boxes,

when is the day that FFG is going to give us normal inserts to store the cards inside the game box?

Even a small company like plaid hat games makes excellent inserts for it's (single) game - Summoner wars master set..

With the amount of games that FFG is pumping out, what is the problem of making a "Standard" insert mold that will fit 90% of the games ? (at least for the LCG's

 Is the front plate opening large enough to hold a sleeved card? As it happens, I'm way more proud of my card sleeves than the decks they're being used for at the moment. :3

+1 for a wish that they will make some Mini-American sized boxes. Even if it means that you need to fill it with a double row of cards, it would be a cool addition to the range.

 So someone said the deck boxes are released? Their webpage still says "coming soon". I am so desperate for these deck boxes. They are exactly what I've been scouring the net for over the last year. I've tried enlisting those with crafting skills better than mine to make something similar to no avail. I shall be buying as many as I can afford, as soon as I can get my hands on them!

Anyone found a place to buy mini card deck boxes?

or some alternative way of storage?

Hi guys, I've been looking on line for ages, and I think I've found a solution - possibly only for the UK though.

 

This box has eight compartments which should each hold mini american cards, albeit face up. What's more, this will fit snugly into the game box along with my existing storage box, which holds everything but the game cards. My existing box is from Home Bargains and only cost me 1.50GBP - it's a medium. Their boxes are great, I've even managed to fit Caverna into just two of them, which is no mean feat!

 

I'll look to see if I can find manufacturer details on the small box when it arrives, or anything that might help anyone overseas to locate them.

So my box arrived, and it's pretty good.
 
I've had to lay the cards on their side, and I'd say the box is maybe a couple of ml long, but it works. It pushes the base out by a tiny distance, but this is a small, square, box. With the lid replaced there is no sign off a bulge.
 
There is a sticker from the manufacturer. They stock a lot of handy storage boxes, but look like they only deal wholesale. Perhaps there's an enterprising board user out there....?
 
I'll post again when the expansion arrives to confirm that this fits too, just in case there are any other slightly anal Warrior Knights owners reading.

It fits. Beautiful.
