I have just finished a gamebox for the Cyberboard Play-By-Email system that will allow you to play most of the pyramid games. I just need to write the documentation.

It has the following features:

Gaming table playing board with a picture of Andy, Kristin and Alison, as well as a d6 to Treehouse die conversion chart and a d8 to compass die conversion chart

Scoreboards playing board that contains a Volcano scoreboard and a generic scoreboard.

Game status playing board that contains a game status chart (can be placed on the gaming table in lieu of using the game status playing board) and a turn counter (can be placed on the gaming table in liue of using the game status playing board)

Complete set of tile libraries so you can create your own gamebox specific to your favorite pyramid game

10 of each size and color pyramid

5 of each color Volcano caps

Volcano boards (3x3, 4x4, 5x5, and 6x6)

2 sets of Martian Coasters, 1 set marked for Xeno (for ÜberMartian Coasters)

8x8 chess board (1 side with black & white squares, the other side with red & black squares)

Homeworlds board

Homeworlds good & evil alignment cards

Rainbow & Xeno Twin Win cards

Zendo rules cards

Color markers (to indicate who's playing what color)

Letter markers (for names, etc)

Number markers (turn counters, etc)

Turn marker

White, black, & green Zendo stones

Zendo blanks

ELBS squares

Icehouse stash pads

I feel that at this point it is important to note that copyright infringement is NOT intended, nor is it my intention for this gamebox to in any way take away from sales of Treehouse sets, Martian Coasters or any other Looney Labs product. The intentions of this gamebox is for Rabbits to play games with other Rabbits that they may only see once a year at Origins or GenCon, or for those of us who, for whatever reason, will not be able to attend these conventions and meet other rabbits. If approved by the Looneys, distribution of this gamebox will be completely under their control.

That said, the following scenarios have been built:


Martian Coasters

Volcano (MiniVolcano, 4x4,  MiniVolcano, 5x5, Regular Volcano, MegaVolcano & UberVolcano)


Martian Backgammon

Twin Win

Unfortunately, due to the nature of Cyberboard, turnless games such as Icehouse and IceTowers cannot be played using Cyberboard. Also, Cyberboard currently has a limit of 8 players.

I haven't quite worked out how Zendo will be played when Master is called. Perhaps an email to the Master with the guess would work.

If any Rabbit is interested in betatesting the gamebox and any (or all) of these scenarios, please email me at jd4556@xxxxxxxxx.

Please note that at this time, there is no Mac version of Cyberboard, only a Windows version, nor do I know if there will be a Mac version. I certainly hope so as it's an awesome PBEM gaming system.
