Hi,

I am looking for suggestions for ways that I can transport a large amount of games from one place to another destination. I do gaming marathons with friends of mine from time to time and need a simple and relatively inexpensive way to transport all the games that I choose to bring each time.

I am thinkig of a rolling duffel or case. It would be nice if it breaks down or if I can leave the games in it and be able to see most of them.

Thanks in advance!

Plastic storage tubs - many sizes available, including giant rolling ones. When empty, you can stack them together.

Plastic milkcrates or rubbermaid tubs, on a folding plastic dolly/book cart. You might find a luggage cart, like they sell at Staples, at a thrift store.

I use a large, rolling suitcase. It's much easier to deal with than the tubs and you can actually have one hand free to open doors etc.

The bigger ones will hold 6-8 larger games and a gazillion smaller ones if you pack them into the open spaces wisely.

I've carried close to 40 games in the large suitcase I use.

I second the big plastic tubs. Get clear with a clear top.

Rather than rollers, use a collapsible luggage cart with bungee cord.

Also I recently picked up a hockey equipment bag which works great. More expensive but really big and is squared off on edges and corners which maximizes storage for boxes within.

Ikea Big Blue Bag. If you have an Ikea where you live you can go there and they sell these big blue bags. They are the perfect game bag. They are cheap, durable and you can fit a crap load of games in them.

Another vote for them here - I use them for years; heck, I even moved > 2000 games with them!!!

If you have a Staples office supply store near you I found that the rolling crate works well.

If you know anyone who sells 31 Bags (they are sold through sales agents much like Tupperware and Mary Kay) they sell what is called a large utility tote. I got one through one of my wife's friends. It is cloth but reinforced with wire. The bag also easily flattens. It does not have a top to it, so your taller games will fit, too. I can fit about 10-15 games in it, depending on the size. I use it for all my game-a-thons we do here in the Milwaukee area. It might be a challenge to find a manly design for it (I have grey with black and white polka-dots). You can also have your name embroidered on it.

Don't they have boxes for packaging stuff in when moving house in the US? Like these? I have four or five of these inexpensive babies (€2 or so each) holding games I need to get rid off, or for other reasons don't want in my main gaming closet. They can hold about 7 to 8 square Settlers boxes in a row, and are good for a load of 90 pounds or thereabours. (In other words, more than you can comfortably carry.)
