  129. Carry Bag recommendations for transporting Board Games:
  130.  
  131. * Cajon bags (padded) are generally accepted to be great for everything except FFG coffin boxes.  They can be found on Amazon and other retailers via a google search on 'Cajon bags'.
  132.  
  133. * CMoN bags - Despite them being evil if you ever get the chance to buy a $20 game from CMoN at a convention, their large bags are quite good with cardboard bottoms and heavy stock sides.
  134.  
  135. * IKEA  Frakta bags - larger bags made of a plastic tarp like material with a strong strap some are open-top bags and the larger duffel-bag sized ones have a zipper.  There are also Ypperlig large cloth bags that would work well for transporting games.
