Heh heh heh....

I had been thinking "Man, it would be HEAVY!" And there you are.

As for carrying cases --- well, the boxes are already lined with form-fitting styro, so can you really go very wrong with just taking them around? No handle, sadly. But really, DF has not been paying attention to those sorts of accessories (screens, dice rollers, carrying cases) and I'm glad. I suppose someone might have suggestions for products from other companies that could help you out....?

SUV? Isn't that a little bit too small?
I would suggest something like a CATERPILLAR 777F. A lot of carrying capacity ;)
Ok, there might be some problems as well: It's not designed for normal roads. And the next question is how to get all your DF stuff in and out again. I think it would be no good idea to tilt them.

Currently I store most DF parts in the original styro foam boxes, but for a higher compactness, quicker access and to avoid those little styro foam parts everywhere when used, I put a Fantasy R&P set, my Fantasy room set and most of my individual parts in special foam plastic layers within two large plastic carrying boxes and some miniature carrying bags.

Seriously, though, I see a lot of gamers using small and/or collapsible dollies to move around boxes of gaming stuff, whether it is DF or other supplies. These are designed to move luggage or file boxes, so you should be able to find one that will suit your needs. Get a couple of bungee cords or packing straps to secure your boxes, and be careful on curbs and stairs.

An SUV wouldn't be enough. A full-sized Dodge van would do the trick, especially if you pulled out the seats.

Westbound and Down, 18 wheels a-rolling!

HA! And you guys thought Jerry Reed was singing about retrieving Coor for Atlanta?
NO WAY; he was headed for GenCon!

Well, maybe not...but it would work!

All BS asice, Kradlo has the vehicle idea right, and once you get there, a handtruck for the DF factory boxes works fine at Shore Leave; why shouldn't it work for you guys? In fact, I usually stack a flip-top on the bottom of the pile, then DF cases to the top. One bungee and I'm rolling down the Maze of Halls, headed for the Game Room! Of course, it still takes 2-3 trips for a BIG GAME, but it works!

See ya at Shore Leave 29, July 13-15, 2007. Xizzix' Quest, and ALL BETS ARE OFF (along with the gloves).

When running a game at home, needing just a piece or two from this set, a piece or three from that, etc., works just fine. But convention games dictate getting the design to minimize the number of sets you have to pack. When I ran the Labyrinth of Seresh-ka at DunDraCon for the advent of D&D 3rd edition, I specifically designed the dungeon to make maximum use of a certain number of sets; if memory serves me right, it was two Room & Passage sets, one (or two?) Deluxe Room sets, one Wicked Additions set, two Wicked Additions II sets, and the Ogre's Den.

If I can get my GenCon game run with only one trip for gear, I'll be set. I may be packed like a sherpa climbing the Himalayas, but dang it, I'll do it!
