Am I a man or am I a muppet? If I'm a muppet then I'm a very manly muppet!
After a couple of games about the afterlife, it was time for something a little more, well, nourishing? So, we built a tree.
Or, better put, we TRIED to build a tree. ARBOS is one of the many (how many, Frank?) balancing games in the collection of Frank Branham. In this relatively inexpensive (40 DM) gem, players add branches & wooden leaves to a very tippy base. Everything you knock off goes in your pile. (Nice touch... the base is adjustable to vary the difficulty of the game... I saw Douglas & Emily Cheatham - real youngsters! - playing it later in the weekend.)
As for our game, I was doing fine down to my last leaf... which caused a major fall. Sandi moved in to win. Sigh.
On the party game scale... I still like SATURN better, but I can actually afford ARBOS.
