Yeah, ok.

1. Icehouse
2. Ice Towers (has a -lot- more strategy than people credit it with)
3. Zendo/Speed Zendo (Zendo for more competitive, Speed for more relaxed).
*4. Martian Chess (2-player; 4 is enjoyable, but too arbitrary)
*5. Homeworlds (like it.  But too brain-burning/stressful for me to
		want to be playing all the time)
*6. Volcano (2-player only.  Multi its a random-fest, but 2 is great)
*7. Zarcana?  Gnostica? no strong favorite jumps to mind, so I'm going
    to say Cathouse.  Cats love this game.

Least Favorite:

1. Treehouse.  Like it as a packaging/marketting phoenomena, but isn't
even really worthwhile as filler.

2. Blam -- Apparently interesting, but in practice (IMEX), not so

3. Spicklehead.  'cause, well, you know.
