At first glance, it's just another Cajon bag, but upon further inspection, you can tell that this was a labor of board gaming love. The zipper has been upgraded, and the stitching extra heavy duty. The rubber "feet" are a really nice touch, and the Game Haul logo looks great.
Lastly, if you ever have any issues, the customer service at Top Shelf Fun makes it apparent that they want to get things right.
This bag is great! Wearing it as a backpack distributes the weight of the games really nicely and the thick padded shoulder straps make a big difference. The material is sturdy and well made. The only thing I wish it had was a smaller pocket for pens, pencils, dice, etc but that doesn't take away from what a great product it is.
This bag is great for transporting games. I use it for my monthly game night and am impressed with the quantity of games I can get in it. I will say that so far, I have always loaded it like a duffel bag rather than its intended vertical use. My game boxes are of many shapes and sizes and it's easier to load them horizontally. I kinda wish it had a strap like a duffel bag, but I have actually used the backpack straps and worn it and am happy with it. But it is rather large so make search to give yourself enough space! it is well-padded and feels substantial. I think this may be the final game transportation solution I was looking for...
Fantastic company to deal with! Prompt responses to enquiries with caring staff. Would highly recommend.
this is a great solution for carrying multiple games around town on game night. I bought 3 bags and gave 2 of them to fellow gamers for when they travel too. A must have
As I traveled to Rochester, NY from Oneonta, NY to visit my friend there, my bag with about 6 games did get few bumps and there were no damage at all! Well padded and I am satisfied! I would recommend this for anyone who bring his or her games while traveling or even better, bring it empty to a gaming convention like Gen Con and buy few games, then stuff those in to be taken home with no worries!

This is perfect for nearly everything. The only problem I have with carrying games in this is that games are generally 12 by 12 and in order to get carry on luggage into the overhead you need 12 by 10. So instead of the convenient way of stacking one game on top of the other, you have to put them side by side and not fill the 2-3 inches on the right or left. This will allow the bag to compress and go into storage without difficulty. Using a head bands you can group these together to keep them from shifting. Once at your destination and for any other travel stacking them is incredible and works great. I can even squeeze a game mat in a box on the side and still get this wonderful bag to zip. Note: a cheaper bag does not have the shoulder straps this one has... makes a big difference when you are carrying Gloomhaven around (which I don't suggest unless you just won it at Dice Tower Con Charity Auction and need to get it back to your hotel safely :-) )
You might spend more money on another bag, but you won't get the same value you do out of this one. You simply can't beat the quality and functionality of this bag for less than 30 bucks.
It easily fits more games than you'll play in a marathon gaming session, fits comfortably on your back, and protects your games from the elements.
Love being able to pack the bag up the night before with the games we'll be playing and have it ready to grab as you walk out the door. No more fumbling with multiple small canvas bags or wrangling a giant shopping bag from a Swedish furniture store. LOVE this bag! Can't wait to pick up it's smaller counterpart!
The Game Haul 2.0 is a huge step up from the original, which was already great. I carry A LOT of board games around (be it from home, to a game event, or the studio), and my back and arms love me tremendously. Totes and bags weren't cutting it.
Also, because it has some padding/insulation - it also works great to bring some picnic fair with your games as week!
Perfect for holding larger square box games (Ticket To Ride size). I love it. Going to get a second one.
