There is a new Kickstarter project that we want you to know about: 

Board Game Storage Chests, Tokens, Inserts & More

Bobby Griggs at Go7Gaming.com has spent a lot of time designing, testing and improving a large set of gaming storage and other accessories, and is now running this project to take advantage of the economies of scale to make them available cheaply to a lot of people.  His products are not only of general gaming interest, but they include items specifically designed for Summoner Wars!  For example: 

A Bit Box for Summoner Wars Components

SWs Bit Box

Notice how the lid slides into the groove set up for it and has tabs to lock it in place at the back.  The lid will be engraved with thw Summoner Wars logo:

Among the bits you may want to include are: 

Summoner Wars Damage Tokens

Summoner Wars damage tokens

These are double-sided tokens, e.g. 1/2, 3/4.  (This image is of generic damage tokens.  The SWs tokens do not go above 7/8, and are mostly 1/2.)

Summoner Wars Master Set Insert

Master Set Insert

This is designed to fit inside the second edition Master Set box.  Here it is filled with all of Bobby's SWs collection:

MS Insert, filled

Extra Insert Dividers 

Insert dividers

Storage Chest

Storage Chest

The ultimate storage is a separate chest, with 4 lanes for cards, 2 outside lanes for bits, and a tray that fits on top for boards, rules and other things:

Although Plaid Hat Games is not running this project, we do endorse it. The specific Summoner Wars products are officially licensed, and he includes a Summoner Package pledge level with many of them for $37.  He also offers products and pledge levels specialized for other popular games, but his overall product line is very adaptable to many games, including other PHG products.  Check it out!

Can two of everything (all 16 second summoners included) fit in the chest? One day I will buy doubles and need to fit them somewhere.

If only shipping were not $50... Sam and Sirian would have to go back to the shoe box for now.

When we say second version, do we mean the smaller footprint box (no plastic insert)?

Bobby from Go7Gaming here, I thought I would take a moment to answer the questions I see here with the announcement.

1) Two of everything will fit fine unsleeved in the EXT-001 chest. If sleeved, you are going to need to consider the EXT-003 chest or perhaps some ASB inserts and the Artist Sketch Case (two cases + inserts)

2) Yes, the SWAR insert fits in the 2nd ed. Master Set box that is smaller and doesn't include the plastic insert. :(

I have a question: why is the EXT-003 chest $150 when it is a combinations of the EXT-001 ($100) and ASG-004($38)?

@orcelfarmyone: good question. The EXT-003 is taller than the EXT-001 and includes bumpers for the ASB-004 insert. These factors (increase production time on the laser) plus the additional weight of wood (shipping) account for the increased cost.

Seems fair. Thanks!

About how many sleeved cards do you think one divider equals?

@Cuffs Alister: Yeah I'm just thinking the same thing. Anyone wanna trade their sleek new model for my battered but beloved classic?

@orcelfarmyone: I have a great post on this on our website:

http://go7gaming.com/sleeving-cards-our-inserts/

The short answer is it depends on what you used to sleeve, but if you used the Mayday Chimeras, one divider is equal to 6.015 sleeved cards (.30mm card and .08mm sleeve; a divider = 2.286mm)

Edit:

Will the two-piece premium Summoner Wars board fit on top of the ASB-003 insert in the carrying case?

[email protected] commented:

@orcelfarmyone: Two piece board fits side by side, but it is a tight fit. The one piece does not fit on top of the ASB-002/003/004 inserts in the case. The two piece and one piece board fits great in the case with the ASB-001. Either board with fit in the top tray of the EXT chests.

Edit:

So, if I don't pledge for the kickstarter, can I still buy a product when they come out? How will this work?

Good luck for this. Due to being in the EU and the costs of shipping I won't be backing but fingers crossed all will go well and at some stage in the future us Europeans will be able to get hold of these, could do with several of the options!
