Other Notes

  • This game shares its name with an early Looney Labs pyramid product, which consisted of then-new colors, black and clear, in a drawstring bag (made of hemp cloth) which also included a chessboard. The game, which wasn't finished until years latter, doesn't quite match up with the one originally envisioned. but still uses the bag and the opaque qualities of the black pieces.
