Oregon on the left, Tobago the right,
Two very good choices for a cold winter’s night.
“Build a western town," asked I, "or search for some treasure?
I’m happy with either, what is your pleasure?”

“Tobago,” said Wendy, “where the climate is hot!”
“Absolutely!” quipped Zane, “For outside it is not!”
The board was assembled using pieces A, B, and C,
And on went idols and huts, and every last tree.

Wendy’s jeep was placed way down southernmost,
With Aimee alone on the far eastern coast.
Not missing a beat, Zane and I went southwest,
Lots of idols and huts, it seemed like the best!

Just six measly clues; the first treasure was found!
A long way from all players, in far northern ground!
Aimee, the closest, took a circuitous route,
And dug up the first treasure (getting two clues, to boot).

Of the following five treasures, down south were found four,
And the other three players quickly evened the score.
Zane and I scooped up amulets, three each for good measure,
Lucky we each kept one for we both got cursed treasure!

Wendy's jeep didn’t move much, mostly parked the whole game,
But she played pretty smart, she had a stake in each claim.
When the last treasure was found, it was by the big lake,
Wendy snapped into gear, the final gold to then take!

She had finder’s bonus, and of five clues she had three,
With but one clue for Zane and one clue for me!
Zane settled on four gold and I chose just three,
Wendy flipped up her cards and laughed, “That’s four fives for me!”

The game now was ended; the treasure quite evenly split,
Though cards of two or three coins seemed all I could get.
Aimee got twenty-seven; at twenty-eight, Zane and I tied,
“I have thirty-eight,” chuckled Wendy, her smile a mile wide!

Is winter getting you down, the wind and the snow?
Perhaps fun filled Tobago is where you should go!
There’s a lot to this game, many choices to make,
Take a short holiday there, it won’t be a mistake!

Based on a winter’s evening play on Sunday, Nov. 25
