flea market find


Once again I've been expanding our games collection. I found these game pieces (without packaging or instructions) and have had fun building our tree and trying to guess the game rules... does anyone know them , or what the game is called?

We had fun with our made-up rules, anyway - particularly given they are flexible enough to cope with missing pieces!

Visit Sophie for lots of lovely finds...

what an interesting looking game! Looks fun. I've never seen one like this either, i wonder what it is about... Games are so good for connecting with one another, great find. xx

I remember this from my own childhood. I have no recollection of any rules but I used to love building with these pieces!

OMG! I had that game. It came in a green box, and you roll the dice and construct the tree as per the directions on the dice.

I had completely forgotten it. Thank you for that blast from the past! I loved that game!
