A colourful, 3D stacking game for Braves, Squaws and Papooses published
by Surprised Stare Games in October 2010.
Following the success of the innovative CONFUCIUS and the quirky
FZZZT!, Surprised Stare Games has taken another eclectic turn in
2010 with the release of TOTEMO, a colourful stacking game for ages
6 and up.
Players place custom-designed blocks onto a wooden game board to
construct Totem Poles, scoring victory points along the way. Blocks
must be placed according to their colour, and the colours of the
blocks they touch in three dimensions - for example, a purple block
may only be placed adjacent to purple, red or blue blocks. Bonus
placements and scoring are possible if you land exactly on special
spaces on the score track.
quick (plays in around 30 minutes)
