Arbos, edition shown.

One of the sticks broke, so its missing that one. It wouldn't be hard to recreate with some round pieces of wood and a drill, but I never felt the game was negatively affected by the missing piece (There's a lot of sticks) so I never bothered to make it.

Minimum Bid: $15

0) So Santa has the ability to bring you any game that you want, be it OOP or not even available just yet, what do you ask for? Use that game as your geeklist entry. Arbos, I got to play this little gem at CABS one time and love it.

1) What game would you most like to see receive the 'Legacy' treatment? I think that an 18XX would rock with this, like 1856: Railroading in Upper Canada from 1856

2) What one aspect would you take out of a game you like to make it better? It'll be Steampunk Rally. Taking out Tesla, for some reason he's overpower. Both games that I have played, the player that has Tesla move maybe three spaces during most of the game, Then after 2 or 3 of us past the finish line, there's another round and Tesla past all of us and wins the game.

3) What number would you consider too many unplayed games in your collection? Any number. I hate that I have any unplayed games in my collection. I didn't get them to collect dust.

4) What is your most bitter/haunting boardgaming loss? (Like where you managed to snatch the defeat from the jaws of victory against all odds) Any game of either Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island or Forbidden Desert. Just cannot seem to win any of those.

5) What game was the biggest let down of 2015? I really cannot said anything from 2015 games, that I got to played. I would say that the biggest let down of all is Marvel Dice Masters. I really enjoy Quarriors! a lot and also a big Marvel fan. This should be a no brainner, but this game just blows.

6) If you had to go out of town on business, and had no guarantees that you'd find fellow gamers, would you bring some games with you anyway? {If so, which one(s)?} Yes, No Thanks!, Burger Joint and Who's the Ass?

7) What links do you have in your Quickbar, and which are the ones you use most often? The "How Many Player" link is cool

8) Are there any games you think have a "perfect" design? Die Macher, this sounds like a boring game, but it' not. The time goes by and it doesn't seem like a long game.

9) From your collection of unplayed games, (that you would be learning for the first time,) what is the game you would most like to play first? Merchants & Marauders

10) What game would you use as kindling for a fire? Cards Against Humanity even though it would smell because the "game" is crap.

BGG Comments: I am horrible at this, but I love seeing it play out, as the "tree" blooms over the course of the game. Great components... still has a "wow" factor, fifteen years later.

My Rating: 5.7

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.
