I bought a 2003 Mazda Protege5, right after leaving college in 2004. It was barely used, only 6,000 miles, with nice perks like alloy wheels, sunroof and upgraded sound system.

At my father's advice before buying the car, I drove it to my family's longtime mechanic Charlie for his inspection and blessing. After a brief ten-minute inspection, Charlie returned and passed the car with flying colors.

Charlie: "There's just one thing wrong with the car, Ryan."

Me: "What's that, Charlie?"

Charlie: "The color, Ryan."

Me: "What's wrong with the color?"

Charlie: "It's canary yellow, Ryan!"

Me: "Why's that a bad thing?"

Charlie: "That means it's a lemon, Ryan!"

Me: "I don't think so. Maybe it's a pineapple!"

....

Thus the name stuck, and the car has been called The Pineapple ever since.

There's a shoebox of small games in the trunk, games on the go. Here's what's in the box right now.

A suede set I found in a thrift store, originally from Brookstone. It's waterproof, won't blow away, and rolls up into a tube.

Same Brookstone set as the Chess set, just flip it over. Use the dice from Farkle.

After a literal thousand plays, my beloved 2002 edition has moved here for retirement. Borrows a die from Farkle. I sing the praises of a film canister full of small D6s.

(I noticed that there is no image on BGG for the 2002 boxfront. Someone should do something about that.)

Standard issue Loonacy stays home. I'd hate to lose those promos.

Thus redundant, Retro Loonacy hits the road.

With the arrival of Pyramid Arcade, I had a bunch of redundant 2005-era pyramids and accessories, and so a sandwich bag full of these pieces moved to the Pineapple. My wife appreciates the ability to play Volcano while traveling.

Nothing is quite as permanent as the temporary.
