"Thanks.  I hope you enjoy the game.  Just to be clear.  I love PH very much, so this was not an attempt to "fix" it.  Instead, it was more an exercise in exploring remove luck from it that yielded interesting results. :)"

"A very interesting way to counter the die rolling in Pink Hijinks. I have wondered if chance was a little too high in PH, but we enjoy it enough to not worry. We'll try your variant next time we play though!"

New Pyramid game: Pungo

Though it wasn't a resolution per se, I challenged myself to invent 10 pyramid games in 2014.  While I have a few in various stages of development, I recently "completed" a game called Pungo.Pungo came out of my explorations in attempting to remove the randomness from Pink Hijinks (see my post on Pink Poppycock).  This thread of exploration led to a game that hints of PH, but plays quite differently. The rules are on the Icehouse games wiki at …See More

"Oh there's online versions of just about everything needed to play somewhere or other. You may have to find some of it though as there are a few dead links that get in the way. But as I noted on the game techs FB group, I'm an archivist…"

"That is interesting to know.  I was never really clear on what came with these old sets.  Pretty awesome, thank you! The printed book The Empty City is numbered "zero" on the spine, and the book Playing With Pyramids is numbered…"

"I've not seen any scans of the enclosed booklets, but I imagine most of the material has migrated online or to other documents. The "History" booklet looks like it might contain stories from "The Empty City" -- or at least…"

Joseph Carter replied to Fogus's discussion 'Glitter!'
"Has anyone by chance scanned those original booklets?  I know that *most* (but not all) issues of Hypothermia have been scanned (with some OCR errors I should probably email ee0r about when I'm thinking about it and have some time). Being…"
