Game carrying solutions.

Wondered if anyone would appreciate one of these very-neat game transport/storage solutions.

You can keep your games laid-flat with the big "Tank".

They look great, they're just very expensive!

I've given some thought to gaming bags over the last couple of years. I actually made a prototype out of oilcloth with the intention of using Jess' ninja sewing skills to make a 'proper' waterproof bag for 3/4 games, laid flat with a decent handle. It never got past the prototype as I realised that what I'd 'invented' was a pizza delivery bag:



So I'm tempted to buy one of these instead. Other options I've considered are a cajon bag or robbing a Deliveroo driver/cyclist.

Was beginning to be very impressed at your efforts, Karl. But I had the same thought: All we really want are some Deliveroo bags (waterproof and which probably come with well-designed securing and padding on the inside).

I've been debating buying a cajon bag for some time - they seem to be approx the ideal size and the game specific bags are ridiculously expensive by comparison

big bag solution discussion

Post  Andrew_Wilko on Thu 23 Feb 2017, 15:00

Let's roll with this discussion then. I'll change the title when the kickstarter ends.
Bags which stack vertically and open from the side would save a -lot- of space/clutter when in a pub.
Not having to take your games out also saves them from ware and inevitably dirty tables.
After a quick search it seems that people are find decent solutions:

They're a great option but I rarely have need to carry that many games. Something like the red one in my post above, with room for 2/3 big games and a few smaller ones would suit me most of the time.
