Re: [Icehouse] Huh?

It looks to me that he is talking specifically about uploading such a game to their "anthology". Icehouse has a problem because the pieces are from a third party source.

Later on page, he states "We don't want Stonehenge games to use things other people can't get easily, or have to pay money for." I'm not sure why that doesn't exclude chess, checkers, and go pieces. (I suppose one _could_ make your own chess pieces out of scraps of paper, as in his "no Scrabble tiles" ruling.)

I saw that comment and was really confused by it as well.  Maybe he was more talking about publishing the game rules and having them use Icehouse (errr Treehouse now I guess) pieces.

From the comments on this page, a game designer says: "I'm a huge Icehouse fan, but the only way I can do a game for Icehouse pieces is if Andy asks me to."

Why does he think he isn't allowed to make Icehouse games?  Are we not really allowed to make Icehouse games, but Andy just looks the other way?
