Having never actually played a game of Icehouse with an actual opponent, I have to ask you learned masters, is Icehouse with two players okay, or do I need more players?
You need more players. 4 or 5 players is best. 4 is standard. 3 is OK, but not as good as 4. 6 or more can be too chaotic. Diplomacy and playing off one opponent against another are important to Icehouse, and in 2-player there's no incentive to help anybody but yourself and all of your opponents are against you! -- Elliott C.
