Q1)I use an old Laptop case with a Plastic sectioned box {i believe it was intended for fishing tackle. I also have my Grey stash in one tube and a treehouse upgrade tube.

Q2) I bought a Zendo set within the week or so prior to the announcement that they were going to be discontinued. I late bought a cyan and a grey stash.

Q3) That depends. I am looking to change my transport method. Mostly to benefit the card games I also carry (4 varieties of FLUXX. Chrononauts, nanofictionary, werewolf, Aquarius, lord of the fries and a regular deck of cards.) The card games get a bit beat up in transit so I am contemplation another solution for the lot.

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).

Martian Chess set in the plastic box it came in. Volcano caps in their plastic bag also fit inside this box. Black stash in original plastic tube. 3 x Treehouse Xeno sets in their original plastic tubes. All of these live in a smart cardboard storage/filing box from IKEA, along with the 3House book, Martian Coasters, Aquarious and all my other very-small-box games.
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).

Martian Chess set from FLGS.
Volcano Caps, Black stash and Treehouse Xeno sets mail order.

I bought the Black stash when I heard about the changeover to Treehouse packaging, so I would have the equivalent to 5 x Treehouse Rainbow sets. Then I couldn't resist getting enough Xeno sets to play 3House games. Strangely, the pyramid games that have been most popular with my gaming friends have been Martian Coasters and Torpedo.

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

Seeing as I like to store games in their original packaging, and don't have the time/inclination/skills to make anything I would consider to be better, I guess it is.
