You seem to be asking a really broad question. Does icehouse scale well? Do you mean the actual icehouse game, or the many games which use the icehouse system? Icehouse the game I think starts to fFall apart at around 5 players. I'm not an expert on that subject. But the many games within the icehouse system -- that is, any specific game which uses the colored pyramids -- usually indicates how many may play at a time. I think most games work with players, in general. But if there are specific limitations, they will usually say. As an example, Zendo works perfectly with 4 players. With less players, the game devolves to arbitrary amounts of guessing. With more players, it can be fFrustrating when you have a good idea, but you have to wait and wait and wait while everyone else attempts to steal your win. I really like Alien City, which is conceived as a 2 player game. However with minimal adaptation, I invented a 3 player variant which works very very well. The short answer to your question is: It depends. Most people seem to identify one game they really really like, and will play the game in the way they think will work best with their preferred number of players.

Well, I must be missing something, because it seems a bit limited. Zendo rules... no pun intended. > > David L.
