The gold as used by Eeyore looks quite nice. You could also use the Xeno colors to mark a set of Rainbow 'mids (if you have suitable markers or paint available). Then the mapping of your marked set to the Xeno color scheme becomes obvious.

(Leaving the question of _which_ mapping between Xeno and Rainbow to use, of course!)

You can pretty easily piecenik one set - take a sharpie and draw a line or some such on each of the 4 sides of each pyramid on one set.

Make sure that you can see that line when the piece is at the bottom of a stack of 2 or more.  Obviously you won't see it when nested inside the opaque one, but that's beside the point.

That will make one set different when it's needed to be, but it's still the same for all other purposes.

Eeyore did something like that with a set of his 'mids... here's the result linky:

Don't know if that will help, but it's a cheap and easy-to-do idea for now (until your club can get more pieces).

Anyone have ideas for playing some of these games that require
unmatched sets?  My club owns like 12 sets of Treehouse pieces but
they are all Rainbow - no Xeno.

Any ideas?
