15 minutes ago I had never heard of this game. While looking up some rules questions about my group's last game of Bootleggers, I saw an advertisement for a game called "Timber Tom". Because it is 2:00 in the morning (!!) and I have nothing better to do, I typed in the name, expecting some silly kids game about hugging trees and matching the woodland creatures to their respective homes.

Then I looked at the pictures. WOW......(wipes drool)...

As I considered how tired I will be in church tomorrow (err...today i mean), I had exactly three things on my mind:

1. Lord, please let the game-play not be horrendous (frantically clicked on reviews). Sweet, it's actually good!

2. Lord, let there be a way to buy it without giving up my pancreas. Awesome! $44.95 with free shipping to the U.S?!?!

3. Lord, thank you for letting your simple minded child have this moment of happiness, no matter how pathetic it is.

And the website accepts paypal, so it took me all of 1 minute to order.

I can not wait until tomorrow so I can buy a huge roll of paper towels and a new t-shirt. That way once the game arrives I can change out of these wet clothes and wipe away the drool before playing.

P.S. You are free to bash me for posting a pointless post, because I will be in bed where I am safe from your attacks.

I'm glad you decided to pull the trigger. I hope it meets your expectations. I've been very happy with the game after four plays.

I stumbled on the game via a geeklist, but I'm glad Marco is advertising on BGG. That should get the word out on this beautiful, clever game.

That's how I stumbled across it as well, the first time. I was interested, but didn't follow the link until later, after I'd read a geeklist about over-produced games. I love my copy and wouldn't give it up for anything, and I love supporting a labor-of-love like Timber Tom.

This post was on my front page this morning and I read it and then read a few reviews and looked at the images. So I went to the website and downloaded the rule book and read that and then placed my order also.

My game arrived today, only 3 days after I placed the order, from all the way across the ocean! Anyone who says looks don't matter has never seen this game!

Oh no! I was also intrigued by the game and mesmerized by the bits so I went to their site and ... "200 first edition games gone -- in 40 days! Preorder now for the 2nd release delivery May 2009."

Lucky you acted when you did!

Got my version down today.
WOW.
Found it through the advertising also.
What a beautiful looking game.
I look forward to playing this but do not want to take the bits out of the box as it is so well presented. LOL.

That's how I bought my copy of Timber Tom. I was looking around the website and saw a side advertisment and click on it and next thing you know I bought a copy. Now waiting on the expansion.
