Icehouse Games, Inc. was the first company to manufacture and market a set of Icehouse pyramids. It was founded in 1989 by Andrew Looney, Kristin Looney (nee Wunderlich), John Cooper, and Charles Dickson. Icehouse Games sold poured-plastic pyramids, paper Icehouse, wooden pyramids, rules books, and boxed sets. It sponsored the first eight International Icehouse Tournaments (IIT) and published the first 13 issues of Hypothermia.
Icehouse Games went out of business in 1996, and the Looneys then established their next business, Looney Labs.
