Not to use small pyramids instead of glass beads as domes?

Just wondering...

I think the only reason is to lower the number of pyramids required. As this game is really a piecepack+Icehouse game (at least it was originally) it made sense to use the coins as domes. If you're going to build a set of tiles just for this game, then you don't need to create the coins and can use anything else that fits instead (beads, small pyramids, etc..).

I think the beads work very well because they look more like domes, but there's no reason to use pyramids if you have enough of them...

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

You won't have enough using just one set of pyramids in each color.

I don't know; that sounds to me like a good justification to simply buy another stash of pyramids...

Well, my justification was wanting to play mega-volcano.
