Not from what I see on their website. I’ve had a look at the two storage systems that are described, and they don’t appear geared towards A&A at all.
Just the types of comments/questions we like to get! Allow me to address these one at a time.
I believe there is a misunderstanding about what The Keep is. If that’s the case I apologize. It is one system with two components, intended to work together but not limited to that role.
Organizers (Magic Chambers, Great Chambers, Bit Pits) - These organizers are tailored to accommodate a variety of game pieces. They can be used as stand-alone organizers or with a mobilizer.
Mobilizers (The Keep Messenger) - Are designed to carry our organizers snugly and securely. Providing extra protection and making your games easier to transport
Instead – and rather ironically, in view of the criticism often found on this board that Wizards of the Coast is more interested in its Magic: The Gathering game than in the A&A franchise – one of the storage systems proposed by The Keep is clearly designed for use with Magic: The Gathering and similar customizable card games:
It’s true that some of our staff members are M:TG players, however we are not affiliated with WoTC. The Keep is about providing options. Up until now board and card gamers have been forced to create their own do-it-yourself solution or just ‘make do’ with the original box. We felt that they deserved a better option. Something that won’t suck up hours of their valuable time crafting by hand. No it isn’t specifically designed only for A&A, but I would argue that the components certainly have a use with any A&A collection.
The Magic Chamber is far more than simply card storage. They are designed to house cards and any other small game pieces. A little further down, in that same section you partially quoted, we describe Bit Pits. These are designed to store small pieces just like your A&A sculpts, poker chips and various markers. Of course you aren’t required to use them. You could just use baggies, placed between dividers in a Magic Chamber. The benefit of the Pits are:
They offer an extra layer of protection
Thanks to the beveled bottom, can be used as in-game trays to keep your little parts from flying around a crowded table.
They lock in place within the Magic Chamber to keep you pieces from shifting around in transit
Mesh pockets are the last thing into which I’d want to put tiny plastic A&A sculpts, since they’d get tangled up in the mesh or, worse, would fall out through the holes. Ditto the plastic A&A mini poker chips, airbase markers and other small components.
We don’t recommend putting your tiny sculpts or other small pieces in mesh pockets by themselves either. If you take a look at our Facebook prototype gallery, even we put them in baggies before slipping them into the secured pockets. Alternately you can keep them in a Magic Chamber as described above.
As for the part about the sleeve storing “boards of many sizes”, it’s impossible to judge from that general statement if it could handle something as big as the Global 1940 boards; given how large those boards are, I’d be inclined to think that the answer is no.
As shown in those same pictures, there are two cavities for board storage. One holds standard 11"x11" sizes, the other holds up to 23.5" x 13.5". We are striving to personally test as many games as we can get our hands on. Unfortunately Global 1940 is one we don’t have on hand. That board is listed online as 35" by 32". If it folds though - it may fit.
We’re always gathering information about specific games on our forums. Perhaps you’d be willing to let us know if it folds? If we know your game’s dimensions, we are happy to offer our recommendation for housing it in The Keep.
For example: For up to 4 versions of Axis and Allies that use the standard size A&A boards, you can probably get away with 1 Great Chamber and 1-2 Magic Chambers depending on your storage preferences (most efficient use of space, quickest possible setup, etc.).
Not everyone will need the entire Keep System at once. That’s the beauty of it. You can just get the pieces you need to store the games you play with now. If your needs change you can get more and still use them with the components you already have.
This post was a little long but hopefully it was helpful.
