Most people probably use ziplock baggies. Mike C, Ryan, and a few others use plastic storage boxes that have compartments to separate their counters by empire as well as by type.

By Richard B. Eitzen (Rbeitzen) on Thursday, August 21, 2014 - 10:44 am: Edit

Ziplock baggies (with a sticky label on the inside) can be useful for saving the position of a game in progress.

I have used plastic storage boxes as described by Turtle above which work well enough.

I have ziplock baggies with fleet sticky labels on the outside that seem to work. I play maybe 1-2 F2F F&E games a year. More PBEM games than F2F.

matthew,you might want to buy a lot more counters from the spare parts page as well. i have an old edition (86) and a few expansions (carrier war (old) and special operations (old).) and i'm currently waiting for my new 2010 box to arrive at the local shop. i also recently purchased $80 in extra counters and im still no where near the numbers i'll need/want. i've just started a cyberboard game but im using the game itself on my table so i can properly visualise whats going on, im low on several counters and its TURN ONE! (imagine how stressed im going to be when i cant get another D6 or Lyran CA for lack of counters ( i'll be able to computer wise but not on the game map.).

welcome to F&E :D

my counters are stored in a storage box with 32 compartments. sadly this is not enough and recently i purchased some larger storage. plan for about 4-5 times what you think you will need, even then im not sure that will be enough!.

Matthew, welcome Cardboard Addicts Anonymous. My name is Turtle. I can quit at any time, but why?

By Mathew Tate (Tatertot18) on Thursday, August 21, 2014 - 12:03 pm: Edit

Wait...how many counters? I thought it was a large number to punch already...and where am I going to store all of these/hide them from my wife??
