This list is a child of the Board Game Accessories Geek List.
https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/267012/board-game-accesso...
It's only the faint first glimmer of a work-in-progress prototype. Feel free to contribute!

This list will identify types of devices to protect and enclose games. It will include reviews and suggested sources, at least until (if ever) BGG admins object. If you post here, be aware that the list will be periodically consolidated into a new list with links pointing to any substantive reviews in the old Geek List.

H Bands
These bands, manufactured by the Keener Rubber Company, come in 8", 9", and 10" lengths appropriate to small, medium, and large boxes, in red, blue, green, yellow, and natural (typical rubber band color) colors. It's not practical for most gamers to buy direct, since Keener doesn't take credit cards or PayPal, and only sells to businesses, but many game sellers retail them. Wholesale cost is $.16, $.18, $.20 plus shipping, sold in minimum sized bags of 50 bands. Retailers typically charge $1-$2 per band. Unfortunately, Keener's web site is a challenge for consumers. http://www.keenerrubber.com/H-Band.htm

I use these for my convention library, and sell a few packs at MD, VA, and PA cons I attend. I've never seen them stick to a box when they age, as typical office-supply bands do.

One vendor sells just the small size on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Keener-H-Band-Rubber-Assorted-Colors/...

Jumbo Elastic Bands - non-latex

These are the BASIC bands I like (cheap! at just over $.02 a band, delivered to Prime members)
