  1. Objective: To get three medium, large, or small pieces in a row, column, or diagonal.
  2. Equipment
    a)1 Icehouse stash
  3. Play
    a)Take turns choosing a piece from the shared stash pool and hand it to your opponent who must play it.
    b)Place the piece you are given adjacent to one of the pieces on the table or on another piece. If your piece touches the playing surface (as opposed to being placed on another piece), your piece must touch an existing piece's side (no diagonals). The board can expand in any direction as long as there is surface area on the table for the expansion. You can win with three diagonals in a row but the board only expands orthogonally.
    c)You can place a piece on another piece. If you place a small piece on top of a larger piece (a stack), the piece counts as both the large and the smaller piece. If you place a large piece on the small piece (nest), the piece counts as only the large piece.
    d)You cannot nest and stack in the same square.
    e)You can also place a small piece on a large piece or a large piece on a small piece without having a middle medium piece.
  4. Winning
    a)The player who gets three in a row wins. You must loudly say "Take That!" as you play your winning move.
  5. Variation
    Use two colors and add the victory condition of getting three same-colored pieces in a row.
