There's a ton of great games at www.stupidstuff.org. They have Joggle, Word Hunter, geez, too many to remember but they have a lot.

Magus: Looney Labs sells paper icehouse sets too, for cheap!

I haven't seen Cheap Ass Games discussed here yet. Give Me the Brain, Kill Dr. Lucky, and others are classics!

Feoh, yeah, I have a set. 4 stashes in basic colors for $5 was a good deal.
I only ever put the red stash together before I realized I probably wasn't ever going to play with them. They're a bit prone to blowing away if you breathe on them, and they sit strangely for nesting games. Filled with sand they might be ok for Icehouse itself, but I rarely get to play that. I use my regular Icehouse pieces a lot more. They make handy impromptu minis for RPGs, too.

When was I talking about Icehouse? It must have been a few years ago...

Cheap Ass does indeed make some great games. I'm becoming increasingly a fan of their Hip Pocket series. In particular, Lightspeed is excellent and plays nice and quickly. Kill Dr. Lucky is a great game, but not really my thing. I kind of find the taking turns stopping people from winning, while trying to get your opponents to spend more at doing so such that you can pull off a victory style of play not to be terribly fun.
Although at least Kill Dr. Lucky is honest that that's exactly what game it is. Unlike, say, Munchkin, which attempts to disguise it.

Arden, the least fun video game ever created.

Cool. I play both Magic paper and Magic online. Absolutely adore the game - I love the whole 'meeting of the minds' battle of wits idea.

I have the Magic: The Gathering card game, and the online version (somewhere).  I think I preferred the card game; the interface for the online game didn't set well with me for some reason.

I can still lay my hands on my old cards.  Fun game, but impossible to find anyone to play it anymore, at least for me these days.

A few friends of mine occasionally talk about pulling out our old decks and playing again, but we never really get around to it. There are so many other games I could be playing...

Wow, I had a Magic: The Gathering deck. I played Red and Black. I don't konw where the cards are now, probably lost in my brother's closet. It's been a REAL long time.

athos, they've pumped out *another* one? Is the humor still good?

Shazam/Magus: if it's been that long, there's a real chance that some of the rare cards in your deck are worth a good number of dollars.


Seriously.. I just sold off my rather paltry collection last year for $2700.
I'm helping a friend of mine sell his (granted, substantial) collection for a house downpayment -- and we expect to hit 10% of his house value! So, it may be worth it to hunt those down and check eBay pricing for some of the cards.

94-96, mostly. Ok, that's scary. It's just a lot of effort, and I keep thinking I might want to play around with them someday, so I wouldn't want to ge rid of things I'd want to play with. Plus it would be a lot of effort. ;)

I might be able to pull something reasonable for that Beta Icy, though, even though they reprinted them. I don't think I have much that's particularly exceptional, but you never know. (Not like there are any big 10 lurking)

(Checked eBay. Not sure it's worth selling rather than keeping as a trophy. Might be able to get some cash for the collection asa whole, I suppose.)

Selling my collection *was* a lot of effort, but I used it as a learning experience: I built my own sales website, and learned a lot of CSS with it. It was actually quite a bit of fun.
