I guess I'm just not geeky enough. I don't have any extra supplies that I always carry with me.

We always carry Chobani yogurt cups, which are our go-to accessory for holding cubes, coins and the like.

One quick feedback note - if you can avoid typing, that would be appreciated for those of us that are just listening to the audio. At least for me it's very distracting.

For the Take 5 - did I miss it, or did Erik forget to mention Battlestar Galactica? Sacrilege!

We play games in my apartment and most games are either mine or stored on my shelves. So I don't carry anything around

Jason,

Great point. I debated putting it in or leaving it out. I feel like I talk about BSG quite a bit so that was why I left it out. Still you are correct, it should be in there. If only Take 6 made sense.

Well ya know, when a game's that awesome, I don't mind the extra mentions. You're welcome to come play BSG at my place anytime you're in the area!

For an 'Away' night, which are few (they usually happen at my place), I take:
A Panzer Grenadier: The East Front game
A Great War at Sea game
Formula D
Napoleon at Waterloo or something similar
A special request.
12-pack

We will often play two of whatever I bring.

Do you usually play at home or go somewhere to play?

I guess that's the big thing - these boxes are important for "away" game nights. I don't have a bits box for a "home game" night.

Excellent add in, but I usually have to stock that en-route because I couldn't just leave a 12-pack in my car.

I rarely play at home. We're almost always at a friend's house, or at a family member's house. Honestly I get annoyed with games that don't give me what I need in the box. If I need to supply things to make the game more manageable, then I probably won't keep the game.

Jason,

I'm guessing you are in the DC area? If so, I may just take you up on that offer some time. My mother and sister live up there and we make regular visits.

I'd be afraid of getting yogurt all over the chits.
