Here are my two cents:

Have you all seen this page here? http://wunderland.com/WhatsOld/2008/WN.02.21.08.html

That's the page that caused me to start this thread. If the bundle pictured is $34.95 USD, I'll buy at least 3 of them. If it's less, I'll buy at least 4.

I think the card on the back should have the IGO URL for more games, the LL URL for more parts, and instructions on "how to host a pyramid party". Icehouse could be the next Tupperware, or... whatever.

I believe in the current minimal packaging (no trash) model of marketing. I don't need more crap to throw away, and I enjoy coming up with newer, better ways to carry my kit around. I found it annoying at first, but after 3 rounds, I enjoy it. Weird...

And I really enjoy that I've never thrown away anything I bought from LL, except a tiny bit of shrink-wrap here and there, because I can hear the planet screaming every time I put something in the trash. :-S

Have I mentioned that I'll buy at least 3 of these for Christmas presents if they come in at $34.95? Or more if they're less? Oh, good.

These games are good online, but they're better in person. How can we support each other in creating more region-specific activity, like a player registry or something? ie: Wouldn't it be great if the 3rd thing on the card was, "How to find other players in your area" or "How to start an Icehouse Chapter"
