Organizing your Doomtown Cards… Shootouts, Dudes, and Boot Hill!


BCW 9-pocket sideloading pages are an excellent way to sort and separate you card collection. The colors were chosen such that Magic, Pokemon, and YuGiOh players can easily sort the cards into matching pages. Even if you don’t play these games, the different colors can be employed for sorting the game you do play.

I used 9 different colors and also clear pages to create the sorting separation for my Doomtown: Reloaded Binders. What’s Doomtown? Doomtown is a flavorful card game based in the Weird West, think twisted history mixed with magic, that involves various factions vying for control of a California boomtown. The wild west flavor is further demonstrated with a clever combat system that involves a series of poker hands, and cheating as well is part of the game.

Fixed releases (no randomized booster packs to buy!) and living card style of the game means that I have (at least) four of every card. Unless otherwise used in a deck, all my cards are in binders. This means that most of the cards in my binders are in sets of four, back-to-back. While this makes for some heavy pages, the plastic pages accommodates the weight just fine. When I’m looking for a card, the colored pages and their interior organization makes finding what I’m looking for easy.

The Card House holds twelve 800 Boxes (1-piece) or 802 Boxes (2-piece). The Shoe Box House holds six Shoe Boxes.

A full Card House or Shoe Box House can hold about 9,600 traditional sports cards or 13,680 thinner gaming cards. Each of the two rows in a Shoe Box are wider than the single row of a 800 or 802 Box, so a Shoe Box can accommodate card toploaders and other card holders.
