With Team Yankee, you not only have rulebooks, but also a template, unit cards, perhaps tokens, perhaps faction-specific dice…

Where do you put it, so you don't lose anything?

The box the starter sets come in work nicely, otherwise any box over 12" x 12" works or a bag a big bag, Or maybe an old laundry hamper, or a foot locker.

I'm surprised someone isn't marketing a card holder or a faction-specific plastic box or a backpack with compartments for books and stuff…

The same can be said for FOW accessories. FOW started a whole cottage industry for accessories like markers and custom carrying cases from companies like Gale Force 9 and Battle Foam. And people spend good money on them.

My minis(in a series of boxes),books,dice,templates,I keep in a duffel bag or a large tote bag. Cards,in an index card holder. Dice and tape measure in a drawstring bag. Although I wouldn't mind an official FoW/TY carrying bag with foam inserts for the minis.

Damn it Bill, Now B.F. will start producing those and copyright them and threaten a law suit on "ANYONE" it makes anything that simulates anything near to theirs.

THANK'S ALLOT BILL!!!!

If it's truly game-specific, it should go with the troops.

More normally, I use those flat plastic tackle boxes--Plano or equivlanet. I keep boxes--one each--of bagged dice and other randomizers, measuring devices including templates, and status markers. Then when I'm gearing up for a game, I load just the stuff those rules call for into the game box.

Lion Rampant, for instance, gets ruler and tape in inches, two sets of 12 D6's in two colors, and status markers for Activated, Battered and Half-strength. A DBA game would include a measuring device in appropriate base widths.

It takes a couple of minutes, but it beats arriving somewhere and then finding out what you're short.
