I'd never thought of this as an Icehouse game, but of course it is!

I played this at Gencon (I love the OTB guys) and will surely now play it with my icehouse pieces. It's a great game with kids, who tend to remember stuff better than I do (heh). My only reluctance is to point out that the game as sold by them is really cool and has nice bits, and would make a nice gift. Them's good people.

Thanks for pointing this out! I've been collecting a list of games that weren't originally designed for Icehouse pieces, but can easily be adapted. I've added this to my Geeklist on Board Game Geek for such games: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/12016, and to the Icehouse Wiki. If you see any other games that can be adapted this way, let me know, or add it to my Geeklist and/or the wiki.

There's a new game from Out of the Box Games called Cover Up:


It's a two-player abstract strategy game with a small memory element.
I haven't played it, but I think it's worth mentioning here because it
seems perfect for two stashes of opaque Icehouse pyramids and a
Volcano board (5x5).  If you like the game, though, it's probably
worth the $20 to get the custom board.
