Number of Pyramids[edit | edit source]

One of the most useful methods to sort games is by how many pyramids they require to play. The most basic unit of pyramids is a "Trio" (one pyramid of each size, all of the same color). With the advent of the Pyramid Arcade, most new games are likely to measure pyramids in Trios.

Four trios per color

Five trios per color

Six trios per color or more
Six colors or more

However, historically, games have been be divided into two broad groups: those requiring five-color "sets" (5 Trios, each of a different color) and those needing full, monochrome "stashes" (5 Trios, all of the same color). Most of the games on the wiki use one of these older terms. In nearly all cases, 5 multi-color sets and 5 monochrome stashes are interchangeable terms.

Notes:

* you can play all single stash games with one multi-color set but not vice versa
** the Pyramid Arcade contains the equivalent of Three Multi-color sets in BOTH the "Rainbow" and "Xeno" colors (i.e. 3 Trios in all 10 main colors)

Game Length & Complexity[edit | edit source]

Games that are "Fast" typically take less than 10-15 minutes to play, "Medium" games take 10-30 min (45 max), and "Long" games take anywhere from 30 min to an hour or more. Game complexity is approximate and intended to measure how difficult it is to learn the game and play at a competent level.

Why is my game not showing up?[edit | edit source]

If you recently added a game to the wiki, it may take a couple minutes for the database to get updated. Please wait a little bit and try again. If it is still not showing up, the likely cause is incomplete or invalid information in the game's Infobox. Please double check your inputs (note: any game with a status of "Hidden" will not show up in the lists). If it is still having issues, please leave a comment on the discussion page and we will try to sort out the issue as soon as we can.
