When I'm just sitting around with five colors of pyramids (or five Treehouse sets) and a Volcano board, I usually go for IceSolo by Kristin Matherly.

Yes, I know... The rules as given there use only four colors and no board.  The extention to five colors is obvious and makes the scoring a little more "symmetric" since the Rainbow Bonus is equally difficult for rows and columns.  Using the board is nice.

For this and other options, go to the Sortable List of Ichouse's Cool Kindred and sort by number of players:
