I'm sure I'm not alone. Plenty of geeks bring games along to game nights. Only I seem to bring more than most. Mostly becuase of the game box. The game box is a Rubbermaid tool box about 18” long with separated top compartments. The top compartments contain the following bits:

Dice: Loads of D6 in white and various colors
Giant Pink Rubber Die: For Give me the Brain
Glass Beads: Seven different colors
Pawns: Miniature wooden milk bottles in 10 or so different colors
Tik Tak: For holding boards down
Misc Items: String, Rubber Bands, Paper Clips, Change, Cough Drops

The following list is what is currently in my game box (6-26-2005). The contents change depending on where I’m traveling, who’s going to be there, and what I’m in the mood to play. I can get all of this into the game box and still have room for 9 – 12 juggling balls.

I've used this site to create a custom deck box for the game (http://www.cpforbes.net/tuckbox/tuckbox.cgi). Box dimensions are: 2-3/8" wide X 3-5/8" tall X 5/8" thick.

We play this on ocassion when we're in the mood for a ligter game.

Often this game goes along into restaurants and such as it requires no extra bits.

A recient addition. I purchased the Lupus in Tabula Mayfair edition after reading the first several werewolf games here on the forum. I haven't played it yet, because I can never seem to get 8 other people together.

As it comes in an envelope, it takes no space at all. Played this once with 3 players, but I want to try again with 5 or 6 and more time.

and it's expansion "The Big Idea: More Cards!" This is fun when we have too many people for any of our standard games. It also appeals to those non-gamers as it's nearly a "party game."

We like to play with the altenative species specific rules and use Salt-man Z's plastic dinosaurs. Also in an envelope so there's no space loss.

I keep two decks in the box (Rent & Crane) to help kill a few minutes if we're waiting for someone to show up. Don't play that often though.

I truely enjoy this game. With three players (Salt-man Z, Jagsaw, and I) we need two or more copies of this before finding a winner.I've used this site to create a custom deck box for the game (http://www.cpforbes.net/tuckbox/tuckbox.cgi). Box dimensions are: 2-3/8" wide X 3-5/8" tall X 5/8" thick.

This almost fits into one MTG deck box. There are 3 suits that are in with Munchkin. This replaced Fluxx in the game box and is a great 4-7 player game!

This doesn’t see much playtime. It takes too long with more than 4 players. Salt-man Z’s wife usually wins this (though I won the last game we played). I also have a stand-up resturant style menu I use with this game.
