‘So you’re ready to fly in my forces?’ the Emperor said, sliding a scrambled Solomids setup across the table. ’First you must prove your pyramidian prowess.

Equipment

  • 3 trios of 5 different colors

Goal

Build a complete 3House set, by banking one small-medium-large stack of the same color (called a tree or tree-trio) at a time, attempting to form three complete ‘rainbow stashes’ (five tree-trios, one of every color – making 15 pyramids in each rainbow stash).
