I guess that's kind of my point.  What qualifies for notecardability?

Well, it wasn't necessarily that one would actually print out the rules
on a notecard, but that the rules were simple enough to be playable if
they were, with the secondary thought that *IF* they wanted to, Looney
Labs could then market stashes with the rules for any random GIANT like
they did with Treehouse: put the pyramids (and maybe one die) into a
tube, and print the rules on the label.

I haven't looked at ICE-7 lately; are the rules on the card(s)
sufficient to successfully play the game in question?
