I like the tubes but my kids at school have already cracked two of them by some strange means.  I had to order some replacement tubes because the tops of those two keep popping out.  A bag like this might be nice.

As a complete side note.  Is there a youtube video or anything that would explain to me step by step how to play Icehouse?  Reading the posts about the tournament make it sound so cool but I have never understood the written directions.

How so?  I've always found that they fit back in exactly the way they
came out.  It does take more time to collect the pyramids into nests
than to leave them in an unordered pile, but that doesn't strike me
as a significant challenge.

The only issue *I* have with the tubes is that I don't have an
appropriately-sized box in which to carry four of them.

Like a combination Xyloid Icehouse Bag and Chessboard Bandana. Nice.
