What a wonderful game system... With the initial purchase of Icehouse, Zendo, IceTowers, or just a few different colored 'stashes' of pyramids you have enough pieces to play many many more games made available on-line through Looney Labs website.

UPDATE: 5-27-04 added Volcano & Mega-Volcano and Black Ice.

Icehouse

A game 'system' made up of 4 different colored stashes of pyramids that includes rules for IceTowers, IceTraders, MartianChess, and Zarcana.

Zendo

A very different kind of game that uses inductive-deductive reasoning, much like Mastermind. Great for kids too.

IceTowers

This is a fast paced game (w/o turns) of pyramid stacking for 3+ players.

My vote is for Gnostica. Zarcana is the only one I've played so far, but I like the streamlined aspects of Gnostica. Hoping I'll get to play it soon.

A great picnic game. Can turn into a real mind bender against the right opponent.
