One thing that's worked well for me is my "filler rubberband pack" that I usually carry to my RPG group.

It includes a bunch of cardgames: Category 5, Geschenkt, Coloretto, King's Breakfast, Gargon, and Mu. Two rubber bands keep everything together, and keep some of those boxes from opening up.

Put them together and you've got practically infinite hours of fun.

This weekend, I finally got around to counting out 55 chips left over from a surplus purchase and banded them to my copy of 6 Nimmt!, so that I could try out Geschenkt. Now I just need to convince my group to play it....

Hey, I had success with Clocktowers last week. Maybe my luck will hold out!

Rubber bands are bad, particularly if you leave it in a warm vehicle... but even without, they can begin to dig into and 'mark' the top.bottom cards on the stack and leave an edge mark on the rest.

StarFrit Lock-n-Lock containers are my new cardgame groupers/carriers of choice.

I actually rubberband the boxes, not the cards, and I'm OK if my boxes end up a little marked.

D'oh. Missed that.

In any case, I still recommend nice watertight plastic storage. In case of drops and spills and such, an elastic won't do much.
