In Episode 12, we discuss game master hacks … and the Plano tackle boxes that Ken uses to organize his on-the-go game supplies like dice, wet-erase markers, templates, miniatures, and more.
Why create the “Boxes of Holding”? A few reasons:
- If Ken’s running a game at friend’s house, it ensures he has all of my essential gear with him .
- If he’s running a game at a convention, it helps focus what he needs to bring to the con and cut down on extraneous gear.
- Home or away, they keep him organized.
Ken uses two boxes:
Both come with modular storage boxes that can be re-arranged to accommodate different-sized fiddly bits for games and are large enough to hold a few rulebooks for their respective games.
Savage Worlds Campaign Box
The smaller of the two boxes is dedicated to Savage Worlds and is filled with tokens, templates, cards, and other tools acquired through the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition Kickstarter. Photos credit: Ken Newquist.
Dungeons & Dragons Campaign Box
The Dungeons & Dragons box is larger so that it can accommodate the larger rule books. The larger storage cases are also nice for organizing dice, pens, minis, and other essentials. Photos credit: Ken Newquist.
