No-one replied, so I'd like to ask one more time for people to try out Geomancy. Upon further playtesting, it seems that a chessboard bandana works well, and I know you all have them. Steve prefers the variant, so please play that instead of the standard version.
We appreciate your time.

I propose the following variant, because I think dropping enemy pieces as well would make it more fun, and this looks like the easiest way to do it. Please let me know what you think. 1. If pieces are captured, they may be placed under the capturing pyramid, which is put pointing up. The pyramid gains one extra pip for each captured piece, so more than one piece must point at it to take the stack. 2. Captured pieces can instead be taken into your stash, but in ths case, you must play them later.
3.  If a piece would be recast, it is recast by its original owner.
New scoring: Add the pips of all pyramids on the board, plus the pips of all captured pieces. Do not subtract anything.

I'm curious why you're removing upright pyramids.  Care to enlighten me?

Because I want you to.
