Are there plans for a xeno set?

I already have one treehouse set in xeno, and I'd like to keep it growing. But I'd also like the IceDice set...

You can just buy a box of Xeno colored Looney Pyramids. As far as the dice for Icedice, you could just make your own

I strongly suspect that the Looneys will (if they don't already) sell these dice (and probably the bag too) individually on their website.

That said, I strongly caution anyone against getting Xeno sets. Some of the best Icehouse games, like Homeworlds and RAMBots, use the specific colors for specific actions/properties. It can be confusing to transpose the colors to the Xeno pallette, especially when the colors are representative of the action. Of course, many other great games are color-agnostic like Pikemen and Martian Chess. But still, if you gotta choose between Rainbow or Xeno, go with Rainbow.

Agreed that it's good to have Rainbow pyramids for games like Homeworlds and RAMbots.

But assuming you continue to enjoy playing with pyramids, I would get Xeno AND Rainbow stashes. That way when playing the many various games with people where each player gets their own color, players have more choices for their color, which makes players happier. Plus you could play some of those 6-player even (e.g. Pikemen, Branches & Twigs & Thorns, Ice Towers, etc).
