I'm off to another fun holidays with the family but as the instigator of boardgames in my family, it's up to me to pack up my collection and fit as much as I can into my luggage AND not go over the weight limit. I am curious what success/strategies others have had in this realm of boardgaming responsibilities. Here is what I was able to accomplish in my meager quick packing frantic blaze.....


Please feel to add your amazing packing adventures!!!

The first task is to figure out what to take and guess what the family will really "feel" like playing... I'm the obsessed one... they are kind enough to humor me and haven't been fully infected yet ^_^... so I started with this game/box... It's got plenty of potential space to be used and seems rather sturdy for my luggage

It's been fairly recent since I introduced them to the greater world of euro boardgames so I definately have to bring the game that initially sparked interest from my family. This one is fairly easy to fit alongside the tiles of hanging gardens

This one i was able to sneak in under the box insert and alongside the cards of the game.... this is my "heavier" card game (for my family) to get them explore something a bit different.

This is the meatiest game (for my family members) that I am bringing to introduce route building for my family. This was definately easy to slip alongside the rest of the other games into hanging gardens except for the board. I'll just carry that in my carryon separate alongside my computer.

This last one is just a great filler game for two people and with the freeform of the holiday fun, it's important to have those 2 player games to fill in the time. This concludes my list.... 5 games in 1 box... Will it survive baggage handling? (Did I cheat a bit by not fitting the Thurn and Taxis board into the box?) .... If only I could bring everything I have.... when will apple/google make something that will allow me to transport my whole (meager) collection with me.... i've got the tunes/movies/shows/books at my fingertips.... what is there for the boardgame collections? Pony Express? I suppose I could just remove all my clothes from my luggage and that could open some possibilities . Hope your boardgame packing and traveling goes smoothly. Watch out for the glass fulls of holiday cheer ready to fall onto all of your games ^_^. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!!!
