Your fiendishly clever > merchandising system wins again, Loonies! Yeah. And then you'll want to go buy that Volcano board too. I just got mine a couple of days ago and it's absolutely gorgeous! A bright white surface under the pyramids really shows off their color well. Meanwhile, I've been playing Volcano with 5x Xeno + 1 gray stash for the caps. This is really not ideal as it requires using a set of opaque nests which is a nuisance in the game. So Volcano, together with the Treehouse packaging, is giving me incentive to complete a 5x Rainbow collection as well. Fiendish! But very fun. :-) I've been intentionally buying my Treehouse sets from a local store which currently only gets one or two a week. So that's made the process slow, but I hope to be able to get my 5th set tomorrow. And I am glad that this is making the store owners take notice of this little game. And yes, it has wandered from a dusty corner at the back of the store to right up by LCR at the cash register. Hurrah for Treehouse! -Carl PS. Oh, and then I'm going to have to go buy 3 more Rainbow Treehouse sets to cut my own travel Binary Homeworlds set. With so many great games, these pyramids must be doomed to become a commercial success at some point.
