BoardGameGeek.com has a GeekList of "Icehouse Pyramid Games Sorted by
Average Rating":


I think it serves your purpose fairly well.  It's not broken down by
category or material, but you could make new GeekLists for whatever
categories you like.  The downside is that the ratings are from the
BGG community at large, rather than just from Icehouse enthusiasts;
also, it uses average rating instead of the Bayesian ranking system,
since many games don't have enough ratings to be ranked.  On the other
hand, you could probably use the BGG XML Web service to write some
tool to extract the ratings and filter/present them however you
like.  http://boardgamegeek.com/xmlapi/
