A dank April afternoon in 1943, four boys went bird-nesting in Hagley Woods near Stourbridge in England. Searching a wych-elm they thought would be a perfect spot for a nest, they found a cranium, which they first thought belonged to an animal, but to their horror, they saw human hair and teeth.

It was estimated that the body had been placed in the tree about two years earlier. It was the body of a woman, about 35 years old at the time of her death, around 152 centimeters tall, with light brown hair and irregular teeth in her lower jaw. As the mouth had been tightly stuffed with cloth, her death was pronounced as murder and the likely cause of death asphyxia. A strange detail was that she was missing a hand, which was found nearby.

The body couldn't be identified and the investigation was hampered by the fact that Great Britain was at war. There were several theories, many of them spectacular: she was a woman who had been killed by a jealous lover, a prostitute who had been killed by a deranged customer, a German agent who had parachuted into the country, a member of a German spy ring who had been executed by the Home Guard, or a victim of a black magic ritual. The latter was actually the most popular theory, because of the wych-elm and the severed hand. Although there have been a few possible candidates, the identity of the dead woman has never been determined, and the case remains unsolved. It's unknown where the body was buried, and the autopsy report is missing.

What has made this case famous is that around Christmas time the same year, mysterious graffiti began to appear in the area. "Who put Luebella down the wych-elm?", said the first message in nearby Old Hill, but soon, the messages took on the same form: "Who put Bella in the wych-elm?" After 40 years of silence, the message began to appear again in 1984. The last time it appeared was in 1999, when it was sprayed on the plinth of an 18th century obelisk at Wychbury Hill. The identities of the persons behind these messages remain unknown.


The wych-elm in which the body was found.



The latest graffiti message from 1999.

When I arrived, most people were still playing the previous game. Luckily, Tony arrived just before me, so I grabbed him and played Arbos.

I won because Tony managed to tip over the whole tree.

No falling, no game

This is a game you can play as a starter or filler, and it is fun. Just to think about how to place your pieces maybe so it will as hard for the others but not to hard for yourself to place it, is entertaining. As most fun when your not a "chicken", and makes brave moves.

A house rule: The last piece is not allowed to be places in a easy spot

Admittedly very simple compared to other games on this list, but surprisingly fun, especially if you use house rules.

Now we start getting into the lower quality games of the year. Arbos is a Jenga variant with the prettyness gimmick but no other. I like Jenga so I'm ok keeping this but I can't say too much more than that.

5 plays.
