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!


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.
