Wait, someone bested eeyore's solution for smallest stash box? Wow. A stash is 15 because that's what works with the original Icehouse. games are designed with that standard in mind, so to suddenly change it would be silly. Although if it'll save on plastic, I hope LL uses the yet-smaller tube design on their next Treehouse printing. And a PDF of the new LooneyLabsGameBox would be nice, so I can repackage my old games to stack nicely.

I understand your condition precisely.  You want, if I may say,
columns and rows of colors easily available.  Here's a suggestion.
Put 4 sets of pyramids in the alternating pattern in a cut down tube.
The remaining 5th set of pyramids goes into a separate mixed tube.

My OCD can't be dissuaded by simple number tricks--it KNOWS a stash is 15.

But I'm thinking that if I cut down the tubes, I might be able to fit them in the same box, in a different orientation. Hence the reason I got math to do. I'm also thinking that, cut down, they might fit in one of those soft-sided lunch box thingies (or a retro lunch box) which would be cool. Again, math to do.

I'll wait until I have my pink stash and new tube before I commit to a new storage solution. It might be the case that a simple rearrangement (not even cutting) could work out for me.

Thanks for your concern. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks. ;)
