When dealing in board games, I often find myself slowing the game down cleaning up the mess of cards that get scattered all over the table. Catan is particularly guilty of being scattered. I wanted to make an organizer that helped keep all the cards in check, but couldn't find any I really liked. So, I designed my own.
A few version and iterations later, and I have what I dreamed of while I re-stacked 6 decks of cards.
I made three versions; a pure minimalist card holder at the lowest cost possible while still being functional and have a little design thrown in, a more structurally sound and intricate holder with some extra height for getting under the last card a little easier, and the intricate holder but with icons of what deck should be in each place.
I've accidentally given people the wrong cards, or put cards back onto the wrong decks. So having that little extra bit of visual aid was necessary for me.
Good for cards that are 8cm x 5.4cm (3.15" x 2.125"). Great for your resource cards.
