Yeah. I already play (and love) Zendo, making up my own rules. If I played
with the actual Zendo rules cards, it would irk me to not have the colors
specified on those cards. Just a little personal quirk. :)

I wasn't. I just already have five dice, and I don't think I need five

Now there's an idea!

I love that stash, too. I think I'd rather do it with white, though.

Yeah, Kristin told me on the weekend that she thought it would still be up
there until they get back from GenCon.

Yeah. I think I'll use that method when I want a set as a starter to
piecenik (like that skeleton stash), but I'd rather just deal with extras
otherwise. I don't have enough disposable cash to get five Treehouse sets
now, and buying singles at an inflated cost would irk my inner penny-pincher

And I do!

Ugh. Pennies and dimes? Yuck. I mean, I don't like the stones I have now,
but at least they'd be better than that...

I haven't tried this yet. I should.
