The following claim is probably debatable, but the game desginer notes that "To my knowledge, this is the first game to exploit the nesting (not stacking) property of the new injection-molded Icehouse sets. It is also one of the first to utilize both Icehouse pieces and dice."

Martian Frisby is a 2-player race game played on a nearly linear board. Each player needs 2 nests of pieces.

Designed by Dan Efran, 1999.
