Profile Information

Saw a set of monochrome icehouse pyramids and The Empty City at a game store when I was about 9. It looked interesting but was way out of my price range (by which I mean my allowance). Later I was introduced to Chrononauts at summer camp, and I was hooked. I noticed one of the ID cards was marked as part 1 of 3, so I looked up the other parts on the website. I wandered around the website a lot in 2001 or so (the design has changed a LOT since then and I haven't explored it as much). My game store didn't stock treehouse at the time, so my first two Xeno sets were bought online. I bought three more at my game store once they were in stock, and eventually got five Rainbow sets as well. At one point I also had the PWP and 3H booklets, but they (and my Martian Coasters set) were both totally ruined when I accidentally left my set in the rain at a picnic. The pyramids survived and have been re-housed into a chessboard-print bag from Altered States. I was lucky enough to meet Andrew himself on a trip to DC once. He's a cool guy.

I'll be sad to see LL start outsourcing products, but I do understand that injection molding for games might be a bit of a niche market, so I can understand.
I go by Nupanick basically everywhere online. My favorite LL product is the Pyramids series, whatever name they finally decide on. I am colorblind, so I never play with both the Blue and Purple stash. I like to use the Pink pyramids if I need an extra color anyway. My games bag currently contains a deck of cards, a homemade piecepack, a bunch of pennies I painted white on one side and black on the other, a decktet, and the 7 pyramid colors I use most often: the original 4, the 2 added in the black ice expansion, and the new pink ones.
