Moscow Ice 'n More[edit | edit source]

  • The game's creator released improvements to the games rules and provided several additional variations on the game under the title Moscow Ice 'n More. These versions use five treehouse sets or one stash per player, and some of these versions require an 9X10 or 10X10 board.

The games included are titled Maxi Moscow Ice!, Mega Moscow Ice, and Multi Moscow Ice.

While Moscow Ice itself can be played on a 8 X 8 board, these games use a 9 X 9 or 10 X 10 board. A custom board for playing these games is available here.
