I think Tye-Dye colored treehouse pyramids would be neat. I have no idea if they'd be feasible though. It just sounded fitting.

Well, Andy has posted his 'Death of the Monochrome Stash' essay, and he
mentions at the bottom that he's thinking of coming out with a 3rd
Treehouse set, with new colors.  I figured I'd start tossing out ideas.

The first problem is that we've already got 8 translucent and 3 opaque
colors, and making new ones that aren't easily mistaken with existing
ones may be a challenge.

- Brown.  This might be a good one for the obligatory opaque color,
although people would have to remember that they are not real chocolate
and should not be eaten.

- Dark Green.  I was looking at the existing colors, and I noticed that
the green is light enough to make a darker shade be recognizably
different.  I'm thinking of what's usually called Forest Green - after
all, we do make trees out of them.

- Tan.  I'm not sure we can slip this between the existing orange and
yellow and still be distinct, but it'd look cool.

- Smoke (translucent gray).

- Pink.

The first three (brown, forest green, tan) got me wondering if an
'Eco-Treehouse', in all earthy colors, would be feasible, but I'm
stumped for two more
new colors that would fit the theme.  (I don't think the gray or the
pink would work for that concept).

Of course, we would also need a new color for the Treehouse die.
