Actually, according to the Introducing Treehouse brochure...

A Stash is a full set of 15 pieces all in one color...

A Set is a set of 15 in five different colors...

A nest is a set of three single color pieces arranged top down.. 3 pip.. 2.. pip.. 1 pip..

A Tree is the same set of three in any color scheme in the opposite alignment top down.. 1.. 2.. 3..

Pawns = 1 pip smalls

Drones = 2 pip mediums

Queens = 3 pip Large

Through admittedly.. the brochure refers to the 5 different colors as a set.. the label on the tube still refers to the product as "a stash of 15 playing peices." So you have me.. Right or Wrong.. my above explaination.. comes from there explaination in said documention to retailers and available for free to Rabbits.

A STASH is a set of fifteen pyramids: 5 small (1 pip), 5 medium (2 pip), and 5 large (3 pip). One grouping of one of each is (I think) a NEST or a SET.

Pyramids are NESTED when they are stacked (from top to bottom) large-medium-small, so that the medium and small are completely covered. A TREE is when they are stacked small-medium-large, so they look like a tree.

Well, since those are the ones the Looneys use, and THEY designed it... :)

There's always a ladder available for us non-athletes. As for the secret password...well, then it wouldn't be secret, would it? :)
