[Icehouse] [Treehouse] Matches

In the thought residue for the recent WWN
(http://www.wunderland.com/WhatsOld/2006/WN.03.23.06.html), it's
mentioned to play a two player Treehouse match to 6 points.  We started
with 9 points a few weeks ago and found it just a little too short, so
we swtiched to 11 (with a doubling cube).  I'm not sure the doubling
cube adds much, but it has been interesting.  It's hard to know when to

I've been trying to think of a way to add in a "gammon" type rule so
you don't just double to cash out everytime you have three outs.  One
thought was if your opponent has NO pyramids matching the house, the
game is worth double.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
