I, too, would like some visual learning aide for Icehouse.
Because they've been mentioned a few times, I've placed the slides I used when teaching the "Icehouse 101" class online - http://www.ee0r.com/icehouse/slides.pdf Note that these slides are mostly just illustrations and are meant to accompany a full explanation of the rules, not replace it.

The only complicated part of the rules is "over-iced." Other than that, it boils down to: 1. Upright is defending. 2. Pointing at a defender is attacking. 3. You have to beat (not just equal) the value of the defender in order for an attack to be successful.
If I'm really in a hurry, I leave off #3. I mean, they *know* there have got to be more rules than that, but with #1 and #2 they can see that an actual game is occurring in what they're watching. -- Elliott C. "Eeyore" Evans eeyore@xxxxxxxx
