    Yeah try for one with the kick out wheels at the back then you arent supporting the weight of the cab at all once its tipped back. I have a VERY basic one - no straps, small, pheumatic tires etc - and its a pain in the ass to move games on, but it does get the job done. A lot of truck rental places will let you rent a decent hand truck too, which may be an easier option initially.

    Job done!

    I rented a U-Haul truck (14' with ramp), and appliance dolly ($10). Drove 60 miles to owner's house, loaded the games (with a couple helpers). We tied them all down securely with lot's of padding and blankets for protection, then made the 60 mile drive back home, and unloaded the games - all without incident.

    I'll get into the games themselves later. But I'll just say looks like I'll have quite a bit of weekend troubleshooting to do...

    The best deals come from the most unexcpected of places. Enjoy it - the first game is a great feeling!
