In the past, Looney Labs has sometimes published fan-designed
pyramid games. The "Playing with Pyramids" book has some, some
were published in the "Hypothermia" newletter, and a few were
published on catalogs, fliers, and other Looney Labs documents.

Publication in "Hypothermia" was considered the prize for
winning the first IGDC or two, while the newsletter was still

I think you'll agree that publication by Looney Labs lends a
game a certain "official" status, and should disqualify a game
from competition, but it is confusing now that no IGDC games
are being published that way.
