Let's say I am on a trip and I want to bring Dungeon Dice, but because I pack light, every extra space is valuable. What are the dice that I will have to bring with me to have a decent game of Dungeon Dice for, let's say, two people? How about for 3 people?

I think I MUST bring the following (for 2 people): 5 monster level dice, 2 XP tracking dice (pen and paper can replace those), 6 hero level dice, 5 spell dice, two of each one-use from the base game. Then I am not sure what monsters, equipments, and artifacts to bring.

What do you think?

If you leave out mats and instructions, the game gets pretty small. But if you really want to pare it down, you can always leave out the mini-expansions (Familiars, Potions, KS-Exclusives, and Monster Pack).

Apart from unneeded hero level dice, playmats, and instructions, I wouldn't cut below what's in the base game. You're going to lose much of the variety that makes the game fun and it would be easy to mess up the balance. A lot of the apparent volume of the game is just dead air taken up the various bags. If you remove the mats and instructions, I'll bet you can squash everything else down pretty tight. You could also leave the big bag at home, which would let you split up the little bags and tuck them into smaller spaces.

I do not even think of bringing the mat and instruction :-). I like the idea to leave the big bag home. I think I can also put the artifacts and one-uses together in one bag. The difference in size should be enough for people to pick the right type, right?

Is removing a single bag really going to make a difference? The size and weight of a single dice bag is minimal.

I'll second the idea to just cut it down the base game to avoid balance issues.

You might actually be able to fit all of the dice bags into a single dice bag (spread the dice into a thin layer at the very bottom of the bag, roll it tightly up, maybe fold it, and stuff them all into the green bag with the generic dice, for instance).
