I suppose everyone's tastes vary, but Zendo, Homeworlds and Volcano
are good enough on their own (individually) for me to justify owning a
set of pyramids. The fact that they all use the same components is
gravy on top.

Throw in the other games that I already play (and I know I've only
scratched the surface of the icehouse games) like Blam!, Martian
Coasters, Martian Chess, and I've been thinking about spending money
to get a second full set of pyramids, one for work and one for home.

I'm terribly surprised at your comments, considering you've designed 3
games for the system.
