So, here is part 1 of my storage solution for Arkham Horror.

Box 1: ALL location cards of AH and all expansions in only one box.

Just open this box and place it on the table and all locations are ready for play.

So i have only AH and DH yet. But you can see, there is enough place for the locations of KH and IH as well (plus one bonus pocket). All pockets can fit ~40 cards, so they have enough room for all location cards from all existing expansions.

 

The next step is box 2 which have to fit all Mythos- and Gatecards plus the Investigator Cards. But i have to work this out before creating it.

Nice solution Tom :) Seems like everything's pretty functional, plus, the box will protect cards from the dust of eons :)

So, here is the 2nd box. I have spots for Mythos- and Gatecards (the 2 long spots on the left), Common Items, Unique Items, Spells, Skills, Allies, Blights, Injuries and Madnesses.

Because of the missing expansions (KH, IH and LatT) I use the free space behind the Mythos- and Gatecards temporarily as spots for ohter cards that will later take place in the 3rd box.

Pretend I suck at arts and crafts.  Okay you got that?  Awesome.

How and what are you using to assemble this design?

 

Looks like thick foam for the rows (good for leaning the cards into) and something wood-like for the columns.

There is nothing wood-like. Its all foam board, 5mm, glued with wood glue.

Could you take a picture from above of the 2nd box without the cards so we can look at the space needed for the mythos cards, portal cards, unique/common/spells and other small cards and etc....?

ok, firstly - what kind of material you used?

secondly, could you give us some mathematical frameworks (technical drowning) ready to print then to cut?
