The Aquarius Icehouse Mix was Penta-ummm- Hang on a sec-- Quintazone and you can find the rules here:
it plays similar to Carcassone (pardon the spelling) and is quite nifty if you enjoy those sorts of things

Subject: [Icehouse] Mixed Fluxx?
I visited my FLGS yesterday and picked up Chrononauts, Fluxx, and
Aquarius. Questions abound:
(1) I saw that they also had both Family Fluxx and EcoFluxx. Are these
both "expansion packs" for Fluxx, or are they standalone separate
editions? If the latter, other than via Fluxx Blanxx, is there any way
to 'expand' a Fluxx set?
Both Family Fluxx and EcoFluxx are stand alone products. They play
great just by themselves but if you want to have a huge Fluxx deck and
mix everything into there, they will all work together.
(2) Going through the Chrononauts set, it seems pretty clear that Early
American Chrononauts is an expansion set for basic Chrononauts. Are
there/will there be any additional Chrononauts expansions?
EAC (Early American Chrono) is also a stand alone product that plays
great just by itself - but if you put both Chrono and EAC together,
then you can play Uberchrononauts. Cool info about all of the
Chrono-thoughts can be found here:
Way at the bottom of the "Mysteries of the Timeline" link from that
above page will take you to Andy's published thoughts on future
expansions. Basically, he's said it's on the way back burner for a
while - i.e., nothing new in this line coming out any time soon.
Unrelated to my FLGS visit:
(3) & (4) are out of my balliwick to answer, so I'll let those who know
(Kristin? Josh?) answer these.
(5) Has anyone written any games that COMBINE various LL games, say
Icehouse-Fluxx, requiring both a Fluxx set and pyramids?
There was an Aquarius/Icehouse mix out there, right? I don't think
there's been a Fluxx/Icehouse mix. If you've got something that mixes
them, I for one would love to see it!
Right now I'm tring to figure out an Aquarius/Treehouse mix, but I
definitely have nothing to share at this point. Sigh. :) These games
really do lend themselves to whole brain creative thinking, and it
sounds like you're right there in the middle of it! Cool!
