I want to get some Icehouse pieces (from the maker of Fluxx and Chrononauts). It’s a game system (analogous to a deck of cards), and there are dozens of games for them. Unfortunately, they recommend getting 4 “stashes” (a stash is 15 pieces in one color) at $8 each. They used to have a nice 5-stash boxed set, but it’s out of print.
Either way, I don’t want to throw down $40 on this stuff if there’s not going to be anyone willing to play with, though. I’m afraid I might have to go to an Anime/SciFi convention to play this (and other Looney Labs games), since I hear they’re hot shit.
