I wonder if it's big enough to fit a binary homeworlds set. That would show foresight on Andy's part, but then again it's probably more important that the fluxx cards stack nicely in it. And I'd like to be able to buy empty boxes, too. So I could repack the rest of my games and line them up more neatly in my unpurple bag I made myself (although I currently store my pyramids in a metal box with a duct-tape shoulder strap).

It's a pretty neat packing problem, props for posing it.

The answer, is to not constrain yourself to storing all the
pieces in 3-piece nests. I can only pack 14 nests in the box.
Without the nesting constraint...

Yeah, if *eeyore* can't fit all 45 pyramids in the box, I doubt it can be done....

I wonder if the Looneys are going to sell empty boxes for me to fill.  I could always do 2HOUSE and 1+dice quite comfortably.
