Green Hijinks is an Icehouse game for green pyramids by Kat Costa, based on Pink Hijinks by Andrew Looney. The author specified green pyramids but did not name it; I named it in honor of the Kickstarter green pyramids, which come in three trios.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

  • 3 trios of pyramids of any color
  • a 3x3 square grid board

Goal[edit | edit source]


  • Fill your home row with three single pyramids of the same size (in a row), or
  • Get all pyramids into the opponent's home row.

Setup[edit | edit source]

Place the trios in three trees in a row in the middle row (between the two players).

The row closest to each player is their home row.

Turn[edit | edit source]

Choose any pyramid and move it (along with any pyramids on top of it) one space orthogonally, under the following restrictions:

  • You may not move a pyramid that is in your opponent's home row.
  • When moving onto an occupied square, you stack, but you may not stack a larger pyramid atop a smaller one.
  • You may not entirely undo your opponent's last move.
  • You must take your turn.
