Organize your board games with this Kickstarter case system
Tabletop gamers tend to be an obsessive lot. We hoard games like a dragon hoards treasure. There’s no reason you have to be as haphazard when it comes to storage though.
The Gamefolio system is designed to help even the most disorganized gamer fit all of their board games, card games, and RPGs into one universal storage container. After a first successful run on Kickstarter in 2016, the team behind Gamefolio is back with their 2.0 version. It’s bigger, better, and more versatile than ever.
The term Gamefolio applies both to the whole system and the individual units, which is a little confusing but bear with me. The individual Gamefolios look like laptop cases and are built to hold your games. While game boxes can be bulky and vary wildly in size — these are modular and sleek. They all fit into “The Vault” duffle bag that’s great for taking your favorite games to wherever game night takes you. If you’re really attached to your boxes for whatever reason, you can buy The Vault on its own and it’ll at least keep them consolidated and safe in a padded, waterproof bag.
Check out their Kickstarter video below:
There are pockets and sleeves inside every Gamefolio that will hold game pieces, boards, cards, dice, etc. Each Gamefolio also has a clear plastic pocket on the outside that you can put game booklets/printouts/artwork in for easy identification. There are three different sizes — small, classic, and large — to choose from that will vary depending on the size and number of games you’re trying to accommodate. (The Gamefolio 1.0 only had the classic size option.)
One thing that differentiates the classic size 2.0 from the original is that six of the small pockets come with velcro backing so they’re removable. Depending on how many pieces your game has, the classic Gamefolio can hold between one and three games. The Vault can hold up to 5 Gamefolios of this size.
The new small and large Gamefolios don’t have removable pockets, but they’re super convenient for differently sized games. The small Gamefolio is good for simple games like Codenames, Fluxx, and King of Tokyo. Two of these will fit into each of The Vault’s side pockets.
The large Gamefolio would be great if you have super in-depth games like Dead of Winter. They’re also compatible with the new foam trays for miniatures and cards and include pen holders and a drink pouch, so you can rock it on its own with the included shoulder strap. If you’re using them with The Vault, it’ll hold two.
There’s even a Gamefolio binder for your trading card sleeves. Or just remove the three ring insert for a slim, wide Gamefolio that’ll hold extra boards or rule books.
Gamefolio is incredibly customizable no matter what kind of gamer you are. By backing the Kickstarter you can get the entire loaded system for up to $30 off retail price. You can also pledge less money to purchase individual pieces. As little as $20 will get you the small Gamefolio.
If you already have the 1.0 version but are interested in picking up some small, large, or binder Gamefolios, don’t worry — they’re all backwards compatible.
