I like to go to friends and meet ups to play Board games but haven't found a good solution for carrying multiple board games. Does anyone have any good suggestions?

I use a milk crate. It's a great size to fit multiple games (vertically) with only a couple of games that are problematic... curse you Amerigo and Tribune!

A lot probably depends on how much space you have and how much you're trying to transport. I believe some people use rubbermaid containers. When we have to transport games, we tend towards large, flat-bottomed bags that we can fit some of the bigger boxes into.

The big blue bags you can buy at the register at IKEA will hold a lot of games.

+1 for flat-bottom, reuseable grocery bags, preferably with a stiff bottom.

Me too. I like that the interior corners are square, just like game box corners. Most plastic tubs have rounded corners, which means you lose space or ding up the boxes.

I use a large utility tote from 31 gifts. It is really great. I don't sell them, I have frinds that do. I just love them!

My wife bought one of those Thirty-One large utility totes awhile back so I use that when I can, it fits several bigger games quite easily but is kind of tight for the large square boxes like BSG. Otherwise I have a spare backpack that has a padded area for a laptop which I use if I'm only taking a single game out or a bunch of smaller boxes.

The site is painfully slow but that's the bag, though not the print, she bought.

Edit: that Thirty-one site is so slow that I got ninja'd laugh

Compact, sturdy, square corners, roll or carry.

That's what I use. My nephews get so excited when I show up with two bags stuffed with games. (I have a problem... )

I just use a standard storage bin that you can find just about everywhere.
