I'm a member of an online gaming clan (8-Bit Brigade) that primarily plays on Xbox Live. A couple times a year we have meets where members from all over the US (and this meet one of our Welsh members flew in for the meeting) come. We socialize, play video games, drink, play board games, and drink some more.
I came loaded with probably 15-20 board games including 6 Treehouse stashes and the Playing With Pyramids book. Eventually, unbeknownst to me, a group of the guys picked out the pyramids from my pile of games and snagged the book. They flipped through the book and decided on their own to play Zendo. I came down from playing Rock Band on the Xbox 360 and see 5 video gamers playing Zendo all on their own. People were rotating in and out of the game over the course of three hours but for a good portion of the day there was always a group playing Zendo. These hardcore video gamers loved it!
After enough people drifted off to other games from Zendo they looked up the rules to Pikemen and a group of them played Pikemen for a few hours.
So, with me doing no demoing (other than answering some Zendo question) i think about 8 guys are going to be picking up 5-6 stashes all on their own!
