All the talk of getting colours named correctly for binary homeworlds... brings up another issue.... that is "standard icehouse set" or "full set" phrases used in games, and making sure the world knows what that means now that we are in the Treehouse world of pyramids.
Yes! Please do keep helping us do this! I built this page... <http://www.looneylabs.com/whybuy/treehouse.html> and created this brochure: <http://www.looneylabs.com/whybuy/treehouse.html#brochure> and you guys built this: <http://icehousegames.org/wiki/?title=Treehouse> Great stuff! I just surfed around the Iceouse.org wiki again, wow you guys have done great stuff with this site. Awesome! Once 3HOUSE is done, which is still a few months away, I've got all sorts of marketing things I want to do with they pyramids... until then - the good news is - Treehouse is selling REALLY well. we are scrambling to make more they are selling so fast. Yay! Let me apologize once again for making such a radical shift in the way we sell and talk about the pyramids - I do understand how much it shakes everything up as far as the system itself is concerned. But let me tell you, it is so very very much worth it. Pyramids are selling in stores like they never have before. And not only that - the book - Playing with Pyramids - has started selling significantly better, too! We are seeing restocks on the book from our distributors like never before! Here's what two of our retailers are saying about Treehouse: "The copy of Treehouse that we received at GTS was a huge hit. My wife demo'd it to me the day after she got back and we had three people IN LINE to try a demo before we finished our first game. I love the game, it's colorful, eye-catching, easy to play and demo and inexpensive. We sold through our initial order within days of getting it on the counter. -Steve & Janenne Ellis / Rules of Engagement Games / Havelock, NC "We have been demoing Treehouse in our store. It's great because it only takes about five minutes to demo and sales off of that five minute demo are quite good. The biggest problem is that our distributors are running out of Treehouse and the Playing with Pyramids book. - Diana Outwater, The Game Habitat, Monterey, CA. We still have a lot to do towards "making sure the world knows what it means now in the Treehouse world of pyramids" please help us continue to find and fix places that talk about it in old terms that don't make much sense anymore. Getting the game Treehouse selling in stores is the first step towards bringing TONS of new fans into playing with pyramids - but once they try just Treehouse, and show up at your Icehouse wiki, we want to try to ensure they get drawn in and hooked on all the other amazing games you can play with the pyramids... Anyway... Thanks for helping us promote our pyramids! -Kristin (of the Looney variety)
