Can a piece of luggage really be a "dependable and trustworthy partner for the craziest adventures?"
The designers at Estonia-based Playluggage think so. The surfaces of its suitcases double as game boards for backgammon, Chinese checkers, chess, poker and Parcheesi. Erasable markers come with a suitcase you can draw on, and the new design (MSRP $199) has a surface compatible with Lego-style blocks.
Game pieces included with many board designs are magnetic, "so you can always leave the game [set-up], go to next gate and continue from the same spot," said Martin Rungi, Playluggage's export manager.
