Yes, to clarify, the game must require a second set to be playable,
though it need not use every piece in the two sets. Don's summary below
is perfect.

For example, I'd have to rewrite Wormholes' setup procedure for it to
qualify (and I'm thinking of doing so): currently, it doesn't *require*
a second set until you reach 6 or more players. BUT, I could rewrite it
such that for any given number of players, the colors (and coasters) of
two sets must be equally distributed amongst the number of players (2 to
10), discarding any extras. Hmmm... and that would make it work with 2
Rainbow (and "non-Xeno-marked" MCs) for 5 or fewer players... might be
better overall, that way.


Nah... it's basically a "Martian Zamboni Coaster Wars" mash-up anyway...
too derivative for an IGDC, I feel. Besides... I want to make another
game really USING the two-set rule.
P.S. Can we keep it to the Icehouse list, now? I only posted to Rabbits
to be sure they know about it--they can come over here (or to the wiki
Talk page) easily enough. Thanks.
