[Icehouse] Re: IceTowers with TreeHouse sets.

We tried two games of IceTowers using the pieces that would be in three Rainbow TreeHouse sets (3 each x 3 colors x 3 sizes).  If I may quantify a subjective value, I'd say the excitement of the game was directly proportional to the number of pyramids.  i.e. IceTowers where each player has only 3 pieces of each size was only about 60% the fun of regular IceTowers.  Since I've played a game or two of "full sized" IceTowers, these abbreviated gamed seemed to be over just when I thought they should be getting juicy.  However, with fewer pieces and therefore fewer towers, I found it easier to consider all my possible moves in the endgame, as opposed to being overwelmed by the possibilities.  In this sense, it's a pretty good intro to IceTowers.

But the important thing is _it_worked_.

I think FOUR people, each bringing a TreeHouse set to the table, could play a pretty darn satisfying game of 80% IceTowers.
