Imagine that sometime next week, you and your pyramid loving pals will be abducted by curious and fun-loving aliens.  The aliens will provide snacks, beer, and comfy chairs, in exchange for your good companionship.  They are particularly curious about your pyramid games...

You must bring all the parts and teach all the game(s).  You can only bring one box/bag.  You won't have Internet access.  And, umm, you have to carry the box up a huge spiral staircase.  What would you put in the box?

Yes, I'm planning a con-box, and you're helping me.  :-)

12 stashes of "normal" pyramids
   * rainbow (black, blue, red, yellow, green)
   * xeno (cyan, clear, white, orange, purple)
   * pink and grey
3 normal dotted dice
2 treehouse dice
1 normal deck of cards
1 chess board, 4+ chess board quarters, or 4+ Eeyore-warped chess-board quarters
? tubes from old style packaging (Moon Shot and some drip/drop game)
Many tokens of at least three different colors (Zendo)
Playing with Pyramids book
3House booklet
WW5 board
4 or 5 Martian coasters
opaque bag for blind/random grabs

Lighted glass table

MS Outlook Note: If you are using Microsoft Outlook, the preceding sections might be jacked up, because Outlook might change the font or delete line-breaks.  You can right-click on the colored bar that notifies you that "extra line-breaks were removed from this message" and choose to restore those "extra" line-breaks and there's an option some'ere to display plain-text messages in a fixed-width font.  Outlook is teh suxxor.  Zimbra rules much, yes.
