Pyramid Arcade is a compilation of 22 games designed for the Looney Pyramid game system and includes all instructions and all necessary components to play them.

Described as Andy Looney's "Magnum Opus", Pyramid Arcade was successfully funded on Kickstarter in May of 2016 and became available to purchase from brick-and-mortar stores in November of 2016. The "Arcade" is intended to be the flagship pyramid box and will replace the IceDice and Treehouse bags as the primary means for new players to purchase pyramids.

Pyramid Arcade contains a total of 90 pyramids (Three trios in ten different colors) as well as various additional components related to the featured games. These components include:

Trivia

  • The graphic design for Pyramid Arcade, including the box art, instruction manual, game badges and playing cards was designed by Other Studio
  • The color die substitutes purple for black, compared to the 2011 IceDice die.
  • Two sea routes were accidentally omitted from the WW5 board.
  • Stretch goals included extra pyramids and a chessboard bandana. Higher-level backers also got to add a customized card for a game of their choice to the "what to play" deck.
  • The pyramids themselves were modified in order to meet toy safety standards. Arcade pyramid tips are slightly more rounded, less pointy. Unrelated, the pips can be felt on the inner walls.
