Green Hijinks is an Icehouse game for green pyramids by Kat Costa, based on Pink Hijinks by Andrew Looney. The author specified green pyramids but did not name it; I named it in honor of the Kickstarter green pyramids, which come in three trios.

Equipment

  • 3 trios of pyramids of any color
  • a 3x3 square grid board

Goal

Either:

  • Fill your home row with three single pyramids of the same size (in a row), or
  • Get all pyramids into the opponent's home row.

Setup

Place the trios in three trees in a row in the middle row (between the two players).

The row closest to each player is their home row.

Turn

Choose any pyramid and move it (along with any pyramids on top of it) one space orthogonally, under the following restrictions:

  • You may not move a pyramid that is in your opponent's home row.
  • When moving onto an occupied square, you stack, but you may not stack a larger pyramid atop a smaller one.
  • You may not entirely undo your opponent's last move.
  • You must take your turn.
