Volcano is one of my favorites!
here is what I found online for ThinIce:
we do not play elimination. instead we use a 6 or 8 or 10 sided die to keep track of how many rounds. when a person does something against the rules- they get a token, put all their pieces back in the pile and just start fresh with whatever the next person calls. at the end of all the rounds. all the kids count their tokens. the one with the least amount wins.

It all stemmed from a meeting with my online video game buddies.  They wanted to play a game and i handed them Playing With Pyramids and a bunch of Treehouse stashes.  On their own they learned Zendo and Pikeman and probably played those two games for 4-6 hours (rotating new people in and out of the games).

So today the kids were wanting something "new" to do and i remembered how popular and easy Pikemen looked.  They took to it just as quickly.

My next goal is to learn Volcano and Homeworlds so i can use those in class as well.

Easily my favorite of the published Icehouse games.  Glad to see "the next generation" enjoying it!
