Pack of 100 - Grip Seal Bags Resealable Clear Plas&hellip by Crazy Beads`n`Bobs
I agree with the previous review on this. These are really thin bags and unless you are a careful sort of person (like me) they wouldn't last 5 minutes, but then they are also really cheap bags...

In fact though, thin bags have their place. For instance, when you sort a box full of bits into bags like these and then try to cram them all back into a small space then you will find that many thick bags add considerably to the bulk and you will be unable to fit everything in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Warehouse rules...??, 6 April 2014
Despite the warehouses being the biggest selling point of this expansion, when we tried it we found the resulting game didn't really make a lot of sense. From the rules, it appeared that you could simply place a depo anywhere on the board and then build straight into it, discarding a second depo as you did so in order to pick up all the cards from your own warehouse. But then we tried with the additional rule that you cannot place a depo and then build into it on the same turn. This seemed to help a bit, but ultimately using the warehouses takes away from the other strategies in the game and makes the whole game a bit more based on chance. One of the most annoying things about the… Read more
