A few days ago I spotted a post (https://www.reddit.com/r/boardgames/comments/2w5zgy/foam_core_minimalist_box_for_splendor/) about a foamcore minimalist organizer for Splendor. I thought this was pretty awesome and was inspired to create a 3D printable variant of this design since I'm lazy and cutting/gluing foamcore sounds like work (but CAD design apparently isn't? <boggle>). You can see the resulting parts here: http://imgur.com/a/JUvGN. The one thing that's not pictured is that I'm using a small box band (http://www.flyingbuffalo.com/other.htm) to keep the lid in place.

I made a few changes from the foamcore model:
* cut out finger holes above and below the noble tiles to make them easier to handle
* reduced the size of the box to close to as small as everything can fit together with 2mm walls between components and a 2mm wall as the organizer perimeter
* cut out finger holes to make the chips easier to grab on each side
* cut out finger holes to make the cards easier to handle

I've also uploaded the design to Thingiverse for anyone who would like to print their own: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:693639.

Pretty good list of recommendations for PC gamers looking to start in on board games: http://www.pcgamer.com/best-board-games/
The only way we’d be in more of a board gaming golden age would be if Monopoly money were suddenly declared legal currency.
