I might go along with the Tree House is always green...etc for stores
but you may want to folks order them with any color they like off the
web or reserve that priveledge to rabbits. Personally I wouldn't be
particularly thrilled about purchasing another green stash tho i may do
it any way just for the stash tube with the rules and the special die
(i am a sucker for that kinda stuff and would prolly start
creating additional uses for a die with words like dig, hop, tip etc on
it(it kinda sounds like a drinking game, no?))

multi-color stash as a gateway product does seem somewhat
you plan on focusing on some of the games where color
There are plenty of them out there
The first one that popped into my mind was Martian Chess. No color
needed there. :) Then I did a little checking and found that Thin
Ice also doesn't depend on color (correct me if I'm wrong...)
Tic Tac Doh! (which is in the Ice-7 pack but isn't clickable right
now on Slick).
I've played a couple of these, so I can't recommend them for play w/ a
single multi-colored stash, but a quick read through doesn't seem to present any
problems. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this!!
Also after a quick read through, I realized that none of them (with the
possible exception of TTDoh) would be explainable on two sides of the stash
tube. So, I don't think that having Treehouse as green only, Ice Age as
cyan, TTDoh as... I don't know, purple... would work. You'd need to figure
in cost for a folded up insert of rules for each of those.
Anyway, I like the multi-colored tube. Think of Petra and how she
uses the 'mids! There's got to be others out there (I'm thinking upper
elementary math manipulatives here...) for whom multicolored tubes would be
advantageous. But that's for y'all to figure out w/ your employees in the
marketing department. <g>
