Browse games/Five stashes or sets

From Looney Pyramid Games Wiki

This is a list of games that require either five monochrome stashes or five Rainbow/Xeno sets to play.

Note: in most cases, the terms of "5 monochrome stashes" and "5 Rainbow sets" are interchangeable. Occasionally five specific colors are required - typically the rainbow colors of Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Black. However, you can usually get around the restriction by substituting other colors as you see fit.
