David, you might still be able to use your box even with 12 colors.
I can fit *six* nests in each tube, for a total of ten tubes for
twelve colors.  The trick is to stack the nests in alternating

I'm currently doing this with the six WW5 colors in three tubes, with the leftover pinks in the Pink Treehouse box and one mixed black/ orange tube. This makes it easy when we are setting up for our lunchtime game by just dumping out the three tubes and grabbing dice.
