From Looney Pyramid Games Wiki
Stash pads hold pieces out of play in this scene from an Icehouse tournament.

A stash pad is any convenient object or area on which you can place your Icehouse pieces to distinguish those that are in your stash from those that are in play. In a restaurant, for example, you might use a table napkin (serviette) or menu as a stash pad.
