The storage solution I've always envisioned is a box that fits just
around a filled up Volcano set (in the board) with the top pressing
down on the pieces to prevent them rattling around.  That being said,
I'm playing more 3House games and having a tidy box for 3 sets would
be great.  2House would be great if it also fit a set of Martian
Coasters though...
