GimmeYerGold - did you ever do a vinyl wrap of the case with the HeroQuest artwork? I'd be curious as to how others have jazzed-up the case in addition to what Whitebeard did with the sticker for each quest (also a great idea!)

@JCool I just started adding a couple of stickers to it, from indie artists who do dungeon/monster artwork.

I do want to print the original box art on a vinyl sticker and add that.

I just found this thread and it looks great. The one question I didn't really see addressed, though, is the Board. Does the Board fit anywhere? How do you guys who have this deal with the Board if it doesn't fit in the chest?

Not really any great ideas for the board. Me personally, I reprinted the board with 30mm squares, so my board will not fit in ANYTHING. Also note that the DMs screen wont fit either. The chest has a handle so you can carry it with one hand an tuck the board under your arm. If you play with a modular board, then you are in luck.

I wonder if anyone has any ideas for an HQ carry case? j/k

This looks like a great case. Mine is stacked in 3 game boxes (bottoms and tops - so stacked 6 high). Need a much better solution. Would look even better with the HQ logo and my name engraved on the top. Just sayin'...

I've also had a plan of doing wooden boxes for all the expansions, that I can fit nicely into a big wooden chest. Probably never will get it done though :D

I'd just like to note for anyone thinking about getting one … As of April 2021, Harbor Freight still has these for about US$80.

I think I still want something lighter because I kinda don't … car … so if I am carrying it anywhere, I'm gonna need foam inserts and a back brace.Ideal for me would be a coroplast type box … essentially like an iMac box containing trays with foam to keep things from rattling around and getting damaged. It wouldn't be hard to get the board into such a box, but I intend the board I would actually ever be moving to come in six pieces anyway. The old non-trapezoidal 21" or 24" iMac box should be about perfectly sized to hold the bits of literally every expansion plus the base game.

Harbor Freight used to do a 20% off any one regular priced item. And maybe they still do if you sign-up with an e-mail address?
