I'm a newcomer to Looney Labs stuff having been introduced to Fluxx by the GM
of the RPG group I play in.  I stumbled on Andy's article "Ode to my Purple
Bag" [1] and thought it was a great idea so I bought one of the bags from the
Looney Labs store.  Now, I'm working out what exactly I want to have in it and
I think I have it mostly figure out.

Here is what I have:

3 Tree House Sets
Original Fluxx
Zombie Fluxx
Munchkin w/ the Clerical Errors Expansion
Standard Deck of Playing Cards
Chessboard (printed on card stock, cut into quadrants, and laminated)
Martian Coasters
Werewolves Cards [2]
Two of my favorite Magic the Gathering decks
A full set of Polyhedral Dice
6 extra d6 for World War 5
Printed out World War 5 Board
1 extra d20 for the other Magic Player
Mechanical Pencil
Small pad of paper
TwinWin Goal Cards and Board (on card stock)
Reference Rule Printout for:
	World War 5
	Martian Chess
	Binary Homeworlds

I've taken pains to make everything as small as I can and if thinks work out I
should have enough room for (eventually):

2 more Treehouse sets
1 Grey Pyramid Stash
3 House rule book (so I can get Black ICE Rules)
Cosmic Coasters
Playing with Pyramids

I'm basically posting this to get your opinions on how to improve the bag
contents.  I just love the idea of a grab and go gaming bag.  The kids like to
take it to restaurants and other places so we have something to pass the time
while we wait for our food.

BTW, I have to thank Elliott Evans for the Making Custom Card Boxes [3] article
on his site.  Without that there would be no way I'd ever get all these things
in there.
