I really liked Andy's book too, though I never had the chance to play
Icehouse proper due to the difficulty in teaching the people I hung
around with.

I think it may be better to introduce it to a group as a first game,
rather than "hey, tonight let's try Icehouse." That's how I got a few
people at work to play Gnostica anyways.

But the book was really neat and reminded me of my appreciation of a
certain aesthetic, much like the early half of Dark City.
