Clean, 2-column Rules for Pyramid Games
- M W(Umjahwa)United States
Some notes for those newer to the "Looney Pyramid" system:
- Many of the older games refer to the pyramids as “Icehouse” pieces.
- A “Stash” is a set of 5 small, 5, mediums, and 5 large pyramids either all in the same color (“monochrome stash”) or 5 different colors (“rainbow” or “Treehouse” stash).
- The most common extra component is a chessboard (8x8 grid). Often a game will require squares large enough for a large pyramids to lie on its side (i.e. ~1.5” squares). I recommend making one yourself by drawing a grid on a white cloth napkin. This make it portable and allows you to fold the board to make smaller grids without extra squares distracting you.
- You may also want some assorted tokens. The most you would ever need is 45 - 60 tokens (15 - 20 in 3 different colors) for playing Zendo. For most other games you could get away with using extra colors of pyramids as counting tokens.
Let me know in the comments (or via Geekmail) if there are any additional pyramid games you would like me to reformat and add to the list. Enjoy!
