Arisia, January 14-17, was in a new hotel this year, the Westin Waterfront in Boston. After spending a few years in the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, which was too small for Arisia, the Westin was a breath of fresh air.

Although I’ve been playing Looney Labs card games for many years, it wasn’t until a little over two years ago that I stumbled into the world of Icehouse pyramids. Games like Fluxx, Chrononauts, and Aquarius eventually piqued my curiosity enough to discover more about this unique gaming company and its colorful baboushka-like pyramids.
After acquiring my first set of Treehouse I quickly became enamored.…Continue
