To save storage space and make games easier to carry around, I usually combine two into one box. As we all know, once you lose the plastic insert and bag everything up there's plenty of room. Since shelf space is an issue I generally pitch the remaining box. I only do this for keepers, of course - it's hard to sell or even give away game guts in a big baggie. Yeah, that's a little ironic; I've still got the original box around Solar Quest but not Puerto Rico. Ah, well...

Which goes with which is based on size, availability, compatibility, and timing. I give the DuoGame a new name so I can remember what's where. Here's a few of my Duo's:

+ Settlers/Seafarers = Settlers of El Grande

Huge EG box is perfect for the expansive Settlers family and they both get out medium often. It's a tight fit - may have to start dissembling the Castillo, or stuff it with baggies.

+ Carcassonne = Tigris and Carc (duh)

Both tile games, but a world apart. No good rationale except they physically fit in the T&E box. This is probably not the solution, so I kept the Carc box in case I get any more expansions or H&G.

+ Puerto Rico = Princes of Puerto Rico

Two of the best games ever, very handy, get's carried around a lot. I kept the PoF top and the PR bottom because I liked the PoF art better.

+ Fossil = Modern Fossil

Decent games, MA's much better but an acquired taste while Fossil is a good gatewayer. Frequency of play is about the same. In the MA box. For the art.

+ Chinatown = Taj Mahtown

I like both very much, but they don't get out often, which makes them compatible. The Taj top also looked nicer.

+ Ticket to Ride = Ticket to the Desert

Both outstanding games that will see much play with both newbies and geeks. I ordered these at the same time and was overcome with emotion when I saw the boxes were the same size - some kind of harmonic convergence at work. I kept the DdW top and the TtR bottom.

+ Tikal = San Tikal

Both good three player games. SM had huge box air, and I was very happy to ditch the gorgeous but awkward Tikal box.

+ Alhambra = Attihambra

One of my favorite Duo's, both very pleasant to play with mostly indirect and subtle competition. Like PoF, a good break from heavy cutthroatism. Both fit nicely in the beautiful Attika box.

+ Dragon Delta = Lord of the Delta

I honestly would have rather kept the DD box, but the LotR boards just wouldn't fit. Both of these are good introductory games but for different reasons. LotR has a hot theme, while every newbie I've taught has loved DD's easy rules, exciting play, and the word "ploof".

+ Bazaar = ...Basari, I guess

Seemed to make sense, I like both of these and it's cool thematically. Also, Bazaar was a thrift store find and the box was terminal, so it had to be.

Although I think I may be an outrider on this, I like Evergreen and wish it would get out more. Neither of these gets enough play.
