With everyone traveling for the holidays myself included, I have been working on a a gaming travel case that not only holds a lot of games but has a good mix of games for different player counts and play times to fit most any situation. I wanted this case to be tough and be able to spend a lot of time in the trunk of my car without damaging the games. Here is the finished product I came up with. In the future I also plan on working on a more airplane friendly version.



The Games list

GAMES BEST WITH 2 PLAYERS

TKO (5 min) Multiple Rounds

HUE (10 min)

Noir (15 min)

Star Realms (20 Min)

Gloom (40 min)

Race for the Galaxy (45 Min)

Paperback (With Co-Op Rules) (45 Min)


GAMES BEST WITH 3 TO 4 PLAYERS

TAJ (10 Min)

GEM (15 Min)

Sushi Go (15 Min)

Council of Verona (20 Min)

No Thanks (20 Min)

For Sale Travel Version (20 Min)

Batman Love Letter (20 Min)

Biblios (30 Min)

Machi Koro (30 Min)

Pass the Pigs (30 min)

Concept (40 Min)

Puerto Rico (120 Min)


GAMES BEST WITH 5 OR MORE PLAYERS

Knee Jerk (10 Min)

Yardmaster Express (10 Min)

One Night : Ultimate Werewolf (10 Min)

Tsuro (15 Min)

Coup (15 Min)

Hanabi (25 Min)

7 Wonders (30 Min)

Resistance Avalon (30 Min)

Ultimate Werewolf (10+ players)(30 Min)

Bang + Dodge City (40 Min)

Citadels (50 Min)


If you would like to see more of how I did this why I chose the games I chose and most importantly how I got it all in there. The full article is at the link bellow. Also if you have any suggestions for games to include replace or add I would love to hear them. I used the games I have but I would now like to refine it some more to include some other really great smaller games.

Mine was similarly structured several years ago.

This would be convenient should the apocalypse ever come! It's handy to grab on the way out the door!

18 in. x 6 in. x 13 in.

Approximately 10 to 15lbs full I wouldn't want to lug it around a Con all day but it does have a nice shoulder strap. But I keep it in the trunk of my car and grab 1 or 2 games at a time out of it usually.

Here is the link to where I got it.

I'd like to get larger case like that so I could bring some actual board games with me. But for now the Quiver case I won works pretty well.

I am looking into exactly this for a plane friendly version.
