A Game System is a set of components and/or rules that are intended to be used to create games. That is, one set of components that allows to play several diffrent games.

Recent game systems like piecepack, Decktet, or Stonehenge have tons of games to try, but older game systems like Sly and Orion only seem to have the official rules (PDF) that came with them.

Somehow Icehouse managed to survive from the 1980's until the web could attract a community for it, does anybody know of any additional rule sets written for other game systems published before 1995?


Since nobody else seems to have made any new games for Sly, I did it myself. Well, I guess some credit should go to Eric Solomon.


Seven years after I asked, Chris Goodwin designed Tingle to be playable on Sly, piecepack, and Looney Pyramids.
