Presently I have a very large shopping bag with game boxes on their sides. Not practical because on occasions the box lids open and I have cards everywhere cry

What do you use to transport your games collections to Games Nights?

Hi! I don't own it but it may be a good solution for you http://level3b.com/
I saw it a couple of months ago and I thought it was a good idea. There are some reviews out there and for what I heard it's expensive though. Hope it helps!

I use a clear plastic storage bin with a lid. (If you go to Amazon and search for Sterilite 19889804, that will give you some idea what it looks like.) It's big enough to hold a good selection of games, and it's waterproof. And it fits in the trunk of my car.

I use a catering bag. It fits three standard Euro boxes or two large squares. (Or a lot of small things!)

I am envious of those with lovely custom game bags, they really work. I would rather spend money on games though due to being a brokeass.

I often see milk crates among my crews.

I have a fiber shopping bag that was shwag I got at the Cannabis Cup from a bong company. It is extra large so I can put games flat. If my load is heavy I double bag as I have two of them.

Or we just use heavy duty plastic garbage bags if it rainy [we live in NW]. Not very classy but works well.

I bought an LP Cajon Bongo bag like this:

It's not the exact one I bought - I found a version for about $60. Padded, sturdy, perfect size.

The cajon bags are great. I can get 5-9 regular sized games in mine depending on exact dimensions.

Yup, and they're not too expensive either. They're basically the same as that $100 bag that kickstarted a while back, but they only cost $20-$30.

Combined with two large plastic storage bins which fit perfectly side by side in the trunk.

Those look great,I'll have to get myself one. Right now I usually use a square flat bottomed insulted food bag I had laying around, but it's just slightly too small to fit in a ticket to ride sized box,so sometimes I have to use a plastic crate.

Another vote for the Cajun bag - they are just perfect (for the standard size boxes at least). One of the zips is busted on mine, but it still works well.

Also easy to show people what you've got - unzip and its all there.

Ok, that sounded wrong....

I won't get them for a little while, because the kickstarter just ended recently. But I can't wait to receive my game canopy bags. Got both sizes.

These cheap bags from Walmart kick ass.

http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/duffle-bag/6000023804528

$21.96(CAN) + $2 worth of either 1/8" styrofoam from Home depot or foam core. Open the zipper on the bottom, put the foam in, zip it shut. No damage to the games in the bag. You just need something to cover the screws that go through the bottom of the bag into the wheel assembly.

You can get at least 12-15 games in one of these bags easy.

This is what I use outside of my own game night. I have three clear plastic storage bins stored at the church where I host game night.

A Sainsbury's tropical cooler bag. It's a really good size and you can fit a couple of big square boxes (think Kingdom Builder or Ticket To Ride size) plus a Carcassonne size box or just go crazy and stack four Carcassonne boxes.

It's also very pink and floral and gets me some looks.
