Am I a man or am I a muppet? If I'm a muppet then I'm a very manly muppet!
The only real problem with Mein Lieber Biber is that the platform/raft isn't tippy enough - there should be a genuine threat of tipping the raft over & it simply isn't present with the components 'as is'.
We tried numerous solutions, with varying degrees of success:
- turning the pedastal over, so that the smaller end touched the table (this works, but still isn't tippy enough)
- various pieces from Bandu/Bausack, including "The Egg" and "The Hershey's Kiss" (which worked, but actually made the board TOO tippy)
Buster (Jim) Williamson made the best suggestion - and the one we now use. We put a small piece of felt underneath the pedastal, which makes it gently tippy... perfect! (And the felt fits nicely in the game box!)
