I was one of the people who were interested in those weird pyramid things I saw in game stores, but wasn't willing to shell out 50 bucks for them... Treehouse (and 3house) seem like a much easier way to test the waters, while only needing to shell out the price of a reasonably priced board/card game (10/30 dollars for tree/3 respectively).

Actually I would have probably picked up the set if I had known how neat all the games are.

I've yet to find a copy of treehouse, and would like to give my game store a chance to get it in first (they're out of looney stuff, perhaps I can prod them to make an order).

In other news, what's going on with the experiment in a bag? (all my copies of fluxx have been destroyed [mental note: invest in card sleeves, condensation sucks], and I wouldn't mind being able to show people the whole library). I ask because the online store will not let you order it (in fact, the only way to find it is from the experiment description page).

And last of all, this is my first post to [rabbits]. Hi!

I really think that Treehouse is like the Fluxx of Icehouse games.
Given that Fluxx is very popular among many different kinds of folks,
I'm not sure that it's really a bad thing to break people into the
idea of using the pyramid pieces with something fun and simple like
this.  And I like Treehouse because it's just fun and simple.  But, if
it's not for you, that should be OK too.

ps. Please note that I use "simple" here in the usage of "easy and
approachable", not as in "dumb".
