Carry Bag recommendations for transporting Board Games:
* 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'.
* 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.
* 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.
