We also have many retailers who don't know about ICE-7 because they
order through their distributors.  If the distributor doesn't carry it,
or push them to pick them up, or whatever, they won't have them to give
out, as well as the catalogs.  And, even if the retailer does have the
ICE-7 and/or the catalogs, that doesn't always mean that the customer
will know that.  They may think that this is the only game that you can
play with Icehouse pieces.  And, even though it says to visit
looneylabs.com for more rules, most people won't have a computer with
them at the game store, and many won't think about it when they get
home, unless they buy the game.
This whole argument is a huge reason why we Rabbits need to get out into our FLGS's and see if they want us to do demos in the store.  I'm doing one this weekend with my buddy Tonya here in the Chicago suburbs and I know there are other stores out there just dying to have some of us come in (what store wouldn't want game experts for free???).  And besides, that's what we Rabbits do... spread the love of these great games.
SO... if you're basically a Blab Rabbit and/or you've just never demo'd before, let me encourage you to check out the great stuff on the Rabbit Library (http://www.looneylabs.com/Rabbits/TheLibrary/index.html) which will help you get over the first demo jitters.  It's really easy - you love the games, and now here's your chance to spread the love!
