“When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons, what the hell am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day..."

We've got a rule in the family: when my wife gets to blow thousands of dollars at Ikea, I get a trip to the local game store. On the last trip I noticed Barbarossa just before checkout (the new Mayfair release) and snatched it up.
I was a bit dissapointed to see they'd truncated it from 6 players - 5 and 6 seem to be almost a better number after reading the rules - but I was more chagrined to see that you're supposed to take this teeny bit of clay and make 2 or 3 models.
Are they serious? What I thought was a game involving some crafty sculpting now seems an exercise in a desparate degree of clay conservation. Could people perhaps discuss their experiences with Barbarossa to allay my immediate impressions?
My solution to this is the way I replaced the clay when mine got dried up. Either go to a local toystore and buy a variety pack of the tiny playdoh (Party favor size works well) or go to a local craft store and pay a little more for the good stuff.
