This was a last-minute family Christmas gift this year. I started it December 23rd at 8 pm. I had to work the next day and still managed to pull it off! I had never heard of this game until a few days before making it. It has received a lot of attention and been played many times already. Such an easy game to pick up and play. Most games don’t take any longer than ten minutes, and somehow it’s fun even if you lose. Many thanks to vipond33 for the informative links, to kiefer for the design of the “owls” (which I shamelessly stole), and to kiefer’s wife for the name of the “owls”. Maple and walnut with a danish oil finish (which still needs some work on the “thirsty” end-grain). I have added a (quick & dirty) tutorial on how I made this HERE.
