My icebox is a simple store-bought plastic storage container with a locking lid. It's roughly 9" by 6.5" by 3.5" in size. The brand name is Lock & Lock. The lid locks very firmly in place, and it's waterproof when sealed.

Despite its compact form factor (only slightly larger than the box for IceTowers or Zendo). my icebox holds all of the following items:

  • 9 stashes of Icehouse pieces. Every color except cyan.
  • 4 black stash pads.
  • A copy of Playing with Pyramids.
  • A copy of the Zendo rules.
  • The Zendo rules cards that come in the Zendo boxed set.
  • A copy of the IceTowers rules (I gave away the cyan stash to a friend, if you're curious).
  • 60 Zendo marking stones.
  • 5 Copies of ICE-7 (so I have reference cards for any and all new players, and so I can give a few away if the opportunity presents itself).
  • 2 Copies of Marlene's Guide to Icehouse (again, so I can give them away. Plus, they have a groovy Volcano board printed on them).
  • Aquarius
  • A deck of tarot cards (specifically, the Universal Waite tarot).
  • A deck of poker cards (just because).
  • 2 six-sided dice (why not?).
  • A cloth drawstring bag (bought from Mountain Equipment Co-op), for drawing pyramids out of
  • A booklet containing a sample Icehouse game.
  • The game Light Speed, by Cheapass games (not a Looney Labs game).
  • 4 business-card-sized reference cards for Gnostica, which have reminders of the 4 basic powers.
  • 4 Gnostica rules summaries (not shown), which contain the list of turn options, summaries of the 4 basic powers, and reminders for the Major Arcana powers. These are scaled to 50% of a letter-sized page, so they tuck neatly inside Playing with Pyramids.

I like my Icebox because it's sturdy, durable, and waterproof, while still being quite portable. Plus, it's got a very cool Icehouse sticker on the lid.
