So, I'm trying to kill a few minutes and decided to pick a few games and spurt out some thoughts about them.

I'm still not sure I would buy the game and the going rate for the import version is kind of high, especially considering the flimsy volcano. I've been trying to get one in trade and started thinking about what I would use in place of the volcano, and am leaning to buying a plastic collapsible cup and cutting off the bottom.

I wonder if the volcano is the reason why Mayfair still hasn’t released it?

I haven’t played a face-to-face game of this since the beginning of March. I am Jonseing for a game, in part because of the nice play-by-web version at www.yucata.de.

Jay said it was due in May. I suspect that June is probably a better bet, but I am hoping that it is within the next couple of weeks, because I’ve wanted to play again since I last got to play it a month ago.

Jason (Magic Rat) has my copy because he said he was willing to sit down and try and decipher the game, something which I wasn’t willing to try and do. Hopefully, the game is a good one.

The anal-retentive part of me really wants to know how many of each marble/ball should be included in the game. The other parts of me just enjoy the game and is looking forward to breaking it out this weekend.

I thought this had been released, but I haven’t seen it in the stores or on the online locations. Where the heck is it!?!

I put this in a math trade because it looks like I’ll never get anyone to play it. Let’s hope it goes to a good home and I get a game I can get played in trade.
