For the longest time I've known of the existence of a line of products that contained a bunch of translucent multicoloured pyramids. It turned out that these were called Looney Pyramids, a product put out by Looney Labs. Unfortunately, I could never get a hold of them. I've heard whispers of these from various gamers and on various podcasts but none of the gaming stores that I frequent ever stocked them. They've gone under various names like Icehouse sets or Treehouse sets but every attempt to find these had yielded no results. Well, the search was over finally. Very recently a new line of this unorthodox product was released to the general public. It's called IceDice. I was ecstatic.
|Five colours, two sets|
|All the components|
|One stack, a green monochrome trio|
|Launchpad 23 in progress|
And this is one of my biggest puzzles. I typically don't like abstract games. Faceless games like backgammon or checkers have always put my brain asleep. There's some mystical draw to these pyramid pieces that I can't wrap my head around. I enjoy the simple act of stacking them. I like the clink that they make when they hit each other. I'm actively researching new games to play with these things. I don't know why! The only problem that I'm finding is that some of the more intriguing games that I want to play require more sets of pyramids. Is it fair to list my desire to buy more pyramids as a negative?
