Re: [Icehouse] Poll: How Do You Store?

1) I store mine in monochrome stashes of stacked nests, in a custom-made box, that grabs two stashes by their butts and pushes them together.  I have 7 stashes, but the box will fit 12 tightly packed.  That's perfect, because I don't have the rainbow colors; I have xeno+pink+grey.  You need to see something weird, but I'm going to re-do the box and take pictures.

2) I fell in love with Icehouse pieces at Genghis Con about a month ago, watching my son play WW5.  At the con, I played Zendo, Treehouse, and WW5.  I bought Pink Treehouse, Xeno Treehouse, Martian Coasters, and Cosmic Coasters there.  A week later, I and a friend called all over Denver for four more Xeno Treehouses so I could start playing Icehouse, with no luck.  I finally bought the black Martian coaster, PwP, and four Xeno's from the LL website.  Somewhere along the way, I saw a movie of Alison making mobiles and now I have a crush on her, too.  :-)

3) You really need to see a weird sizing coincidence...  To answer the question, packaging didn't affect me at all.  I cut out my own cardboard, made my own box, and tossed out all the old packaging.  Mine's cooler, even in plain brown.  :-)

Pictures soon!

Q1) How do you store your pyramids? Be specific (e.g. stacks of nests in tubes in a Purple Bag; nests upright in a custom wooden box with foam padding; etc). 

IceTowers box set in original box. 5 Rainbow mono-stashes in Treehouse tubes, all stored in a custom drawstring bag with a Chessboard Bandana. Xeno Treehouses in original tubes. Binary Homeworlds setup in old black Icehouse drawstring. Pink and Grey stashes and Volcano caps in original packaging (though I'm thinking about moving Pink to a Treehouse tube . . .) 

Q2) How did you purchase your collection of pyramids? Be specific (e.g. all mono stashes, over years; some mono, some Treehouse; all Treehouse, except for gray and pink; etc). 

IceTowers bought as sealed boxed set. Pink and Grey bought as mono stashes. All others bought as Treehouse stashes. 

Q3) Do you think your storage solution is impacted by the product package? If so, how so? 

No. My stashes were in loose tubes until I was given a drawstring bag which happened to hold 5 tubes nicely. My Icehouse kit (tubes, Bandana, Volcano board, rules, etc.) goes in the front pocket of my messanger bag when I go gaming.
