I currently have them in ziploc bags, but I'd like to have a system that keeps them organized and quickly accessible in game. What have other people used?

This is a good question, something I've been wondering as well. – Mike Bohlmann Aug 25 '10 at 0:07

If they are not too thick you could try accordion folders. That way you can separate them by type (muddy, rocky, crypt... whatever).

Edit: For ease of seeing them without pulling them out. A Three Ring Binder and sheet protectors would work.

That might work, although ideally I'd like to be able to see them at a glance without having to pull them out. – Numenetics Aug 24 '10 at 19:52

You know, the binder+sheet protector+card protector sheets for smaller tiles seems about ideal. – Numenetics Aug 24 '10 at 21:52

I currently use a number of boxes reclaimed from boardgame expansions that didn't need them; I have the tiles sorted somewhat into wildnerness, dungeon, city, and so on. Each box has a ziplock bag to contain the little tile bits (i.e. dressing, and small-size tiles). It's not optimal, but it keeps them tidy when put away.
