Board games are fun to break out, tiresome to try and store. Nearly every game comes in a different size box and most games are packed with tiny pieces. Plagued by a messy abundance of games, Erin at the Unclutterer blog patched together a tip list for anything with a box and two or more players. In addition to highlighting useful products, she points out a lesser-known style of game-box construction:
When acquiring new board games, consider purchasing games in "library" or "book" style boxes. They easily fit on a bookshelf and their standardised sizes make cupboard storage convenient, too.
Uniform box sizes go a long way toward making your game shelf look more organized and less like a drunken Jenga tower. Liberal use of resealable plastic bags also ensures the pieces are neat and available for your next game night. For some motivation to dust off your board games and keep them neat and ready to play.
