Quite a number of times, I've ended up doing improvisational Icehouse
play -- where you combine some of the concepts in Icehouse with the
meta-rules of Calvinball -- eg, the rules are made up on the spot, and
any that you can get to stick work.  It can be quite fun!

I'll be there!  And I'd be happy to play a "game" of calvinice or
three--mabye with the giant pieces?
