It could be argued that your game Chicken Run, by using pyramids to represent the public instead of say, chess pieces, colored beads, dice, or other material that is normally available at gamer's homes, is artificially requiring 2 sets too... and note that I'm not saying your game shouldn't be allowed in the competition, just pointing out how illogical this restriction is. In fact by using different types of pieces, it would be easier to see what piece is a player's piece or from the public.

Let me apologize: my example is not the best one because in your game the stacking properties are used. It could be played with one set but would be unconfortable... still, my point is valid. An arbitrary line has to be drawn to decide when a game can be played with less than 2 sets. This is what I don't like.
