I'm turning to the assembled wisdom of the Geek here. Today I got to play a game, which the owner called 'Clonks & Clones'. Unfortunately, no box or rules set were there, so we just played it as she remembered it.

The game is played with two rubber 'clonks', which are basically half eggs with feet and eyes and a nose. However, inside of each 'clonk' you can put three 'clones', hard plastic things that resemble the clonk, but without the feet or nose. The aim of the game is to get each 'clonk' to the contraption in the centre, by means of a spinner which determines movement for the 'clonk' and the 'clone'. So the spinner will point to 1-2, 3-4 or 5-6, with a symbol on each arm to indicate which creature gets to move which distance.

Once you get the 'clonk' to the centre, you put it inside the contraption and hit the lid on it's head. This will cause the 'clones' to be pushed out. The clones are then supposed to be led home in a straight line to the player's own colour. However, other 'clonks' that have less than 3 'clones' in them, can gobble up 'clones' by landing on them. These in turn can be expelled by other 'clonks' landing on them, which will force the 'clonk' into the device, to expel the 'clones' once more.

Now, the game doesn't seem to exist on the geek - at least, not under this name. Some internet searching turned up this, which rather looks like the original idea for the game.

Does anybody here know this game by another name perhaps?
