I keep hoping someone develops a semi-automated digital version of this game. Trying to stack so many tiny chits on those tiny spaces can be a total pain, I constantly worried I'd slip up and mess up the board. Well, your group could always sit around a computer with the Java version....
Love the game, just want to cut down the fiddliness involved.
I also don't really mind the fiddliness - only bothers me when I send a tree skittering across the landscape, and have to play Where's Waldo to find it.
