I, too, see Treehouse as more of a luck game. However, its use of short term strategy gives me the opportunity to win. Chance asside, I do see strategy in the game - watching other's moving their pices and attempting to figure out what shape they want. It's a blast!
I wonder if there's a variation in it where you can't see anybody else's trio.
I guess you wouldn't see most of the moves. It would have to involve a lot more house-changing. Well, it would have to be a different game. But the idea of trying to guess other people's trios *purely* by the changes they make to some visible information, that has potential.
