Zark City is an Icehouse game for 2 to 5 players designed by Andy Looney, 2008. It requires three Treehouse sets and a deck of playing cards. Looney Labs intends to publish this game in the pending 3HOUSE bundle product.

Zark City is a reduction design, distilling a more complicated game into something lighter, quicker, and easier to learn. It does for Zarcana/Gnostica what IceTowers did for Icehouse.
