A game playable with the Homeworlds Set needs the Homeworlds Set from the Kickstarter Pyramid Quartet series.
Other equipment may be needed, but it could be as little as a dice or a board, of which often a print-ready file is provided.
Contents[edit | edit source]
For the sake of completeness, a Homeworlds Set contains 12 trios in 4 colors (3 trios per color). Standard, the colors are: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue.
Combos[edit | edit source]
Many games that need one or two stashes can also be played with the Homewolrds Set, by realizing that each player can play with a combo of 2 colors, so that each player can use up to 6 trios in their combo.
In 2-person games that require more than 3 trios per player, the following combos occur in pairs:
- Red-Yellow = Shell; Green-Blue = Ocean
- Red-Green = Christmas; Yellow-Blue: Goodyear
- Red-Blue = USA; Yellow-Green = Brazil
Grayscale Set[edit | edit source]
If you are interested in assembling a minimalistic Grayscale Homeworlds Set, consider the following colors in your set, shown with correspondences:
- Red -> Black (the color of Death or Darth Vader)
- Yellow -> Transparent (closest to Yellow)
- Green -> White (the color of new beginnings)
- Blue -> Silver (the color of money)
With Looney Labs' current product line, you'd need to get 3 Nomids Sets (for the colors Black, Transparent, and White), and a Martian Chess Silver Edition Set (for Silver).
The combos that can be generated with this minimalistic set have the following names:
- Black-Transparent = Hot ; White-Silver = Cool (as being absorbing light vs. reflecting)
- Black-White = Yin-Yang; Transparent-Silver = Mirror
- Black-Silver = Ash; Transparent-White = Snow/Ice
