Calvinball with miniatures! Brilliant!

Hilarious! Love the free-wheeling flow of the game, and the off-the-script, ad-lib! Even the spectators (your wife, and your son's wife) got involved in the antics. Sounds like a classic memory was made, one which will be referenced for many years to come. Cheers!

thumbs up

I don't know about the tree game (even though my grandfather was a forester), but I love the "argue for it" combat approach!
