Arcade Variant for Aquarius Rising

So, I really want to play Aquarius Rising, but I have mix of the old style of pointy pyramids and the new rounded Arcade style pyramids, which are different heights.Does anyone have a good idea for using just the nine pyramids of an Arcade set to play Aquarius Rising?Or should I give in and just buy two more Rainbow sets? Or just be patient and wait until the Rainbow sets become rounded? See More

Draw5PlayAll replied to Michael Stone's discussion 'Pyramid Tournament in NYC?'
"With many luck based games (I am thinking WW5 more than Powerhouse) you have to do a 2-out-of-3 or similar to prevent luck having too much of a factor. Games like IceDice, Looney Ludo, and that sort may need 4/7 matches. Martian Chess, Pikemen,…"

Pyramid Tournament in NYC

I'm thinking about doing a tournament or several of Pyramid Arcade games. I have enough Pyramids and boards and things to support about 24 players in a tournament of Pikemen, and Pikemen is relatively fast, easy to teach, and the tactics and strategy are not to easy, but not to hard. So I was thinking of starting with that.Martian Chess is another possibility.A class/practice session on Homeworlds leading up to a tournament is also a possibility.Any other ideas?If we get a community started, we…See More

Quintazone

First Game of Quintazone. Quite a good game. Black was the only one who managed to play on his Goal, and thus creamed the rest of us.

ABOUT MY HISTORY WITH LOONEY LABS...
Looney Pyramids have been on the edge of my gaming knowledge for a while, the Kickstarter of the Arcade finally got me to jump in the deep end.
HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT LOONEY LABS?
Came to board gaming from Role Playing Games. Very much enjoying exploring this hobby. NYC is a great place for it, LOTs of Meetups. Currently brainstorming some ideas for Pyramid games. When the Arcade is delivered, I'll have enough components to start play testing some of them.
LOONEY LABS GAMES I PLAY/PROMOTE:
Looney Pyramids
