I want this game. I saw that it is a 1985 German production so odds of finding it in a San Francisco thrift store probably aren't very high. Is it coming back out? Would it be hard to make for oneself if it is not otherwise available?

People are selling it used on amazon.de, but I'm pretty sure it would be easy to home-make. Have a look in the game's gallery for all you need.

You can also get it here: http://www.manufactum.co.uk/forest-shadow-game-p838815/?c=19...

I found it in their german store in Cologne last year - I thought the game looked pretty novel. In reality the core idea is good, but the implementation lacks. I haven't tried it with children so maybe it will work better in that crowd.

I just bought a copy from Amazon.de though it isn't quite as straightforward as you might think. I paid 33 euros including postage to get it delivered to the UK but I'm sure you can get it elsewhere.

Here's how to do it...

1. Open Amazon.de in Chrome (Chrome will translate on the fly) and search for Waldshattenspiel
2. Once you've found the product page click on the new or used options and this will give you a page of different suppliers. (The default supplier tends to be domestic only)
3. From the suppliers, look for those who deliver internationally and add to cart.
4. Pay as normal. As always, you can cancel at any time so if the shipping is too much, you don't need to order.

I ended up order from this shop: http://www.amazon.de/gp/aag/main/ref=olp_merch_name_5?ie=UTF...

We have the game and it is great fun. Should not be too difficult to make yourself. I think I have instructions in a book somewhere. Will try to dig them out and post.

Here's a scan of the tree pieces if you want to try a DIY:
Serves as a template if you print it in letter format.
