Strange, the icehouse wiki seems to be slowly deteriorating. :/

Ah, looking at the source code of that page, I see:

| Setup for 3 players:

So once again, linking to images hosted at some other website led to broken links later...

Yes! Make a star of david out of the 37 disks. (If it's not obvious how, make a hexhex with 3 disks per side, then put a triangle of 3 disks onto each side. Or imagine superimposing 2 equilateral triangles with 7 disks per side one onto the other.)

Then the start spaces are on outside corners. In 2-player, they are directly opposite each other; in 3-player, they are equidistant (every other corner).

Oh, OK, here's ASCII art; it may be clearer than that description, I realize now...:
