Oh! I remember Origami Icehouse! I ordered a set the summer after discovering Chrononauts, because I wanted to see what the system was like before buying in. I stored them in a shoebox with some duct tape handles on it until they started to get crushed, and then I realized I liked them enough to get a more durable set. I also recall ee0r saying something about how you could use them to play real Icehouse properly if you stuffed them with fishtank pebbles and hot glue, but I never got around to trying it.

The first pyramids I bought were pastel-coloured: orange, purple, etc.

I didn't buy them from Looney Labs, and they weren't stackable --
they were foldable! At the same time, I got an Ice House Games
T-shirt which is still in my closet (alas, no longer worn as it has
started for form holes).
For those with better access to the info than I, when did Ice House
Games end, Looney Labs begin, and when were the Origami Icehouse sets
