Why have multiple colors. I understand that once you're playing a
single-stash game, it doesn't matter what colors (or lack of colors) you

good for any multistash game. For instance, two Treehouse consumers can't
together and play a game of Martian Mud Wrestling. Four can't colaborate
and make an IceTowers set. The closest this scheme can come to making the
piece sets for a regular game is that five can make of a Volcano set sans
I understand that multi-color sets have a few advantages:
- They're prettier.
- They make rules explanations easier.
- People are used to using different colors to distinguish piece ownership.
And those can't be ignored.
I'm just concerned that BECAUSE a Treehosue set is a deadend product, it
WON'T serve as a gateway to the wider world of Icehouse games. Then again,
do the Zendo and IceTowers boxed sets serve as gateways? How many instances
are there of purchasers of those products going on to buy something else?
