Graveyard Greg here. I've been a long time admirer of the Icehouse
pyramids but always balked at the price. I believe at the time it was

One treehouse stash later, and it's a hit. I go home from the con, and

a Zarcana supporter, but we'll see.
So where's the pizza stashed in this house? I'm hungry!
