Product Description

Product Description

Barbarossa, in German "red beard" was, according to its inventor, inspired by the fantasy trilogy Die Schule der Rtselmeister (School of the Riddle Masters), in which wizards are devoted to the creation of riddles and riddle solving tournaments. In an interview he stated "As you know there are moments when you close a book really sad that it's over. After finishing the last page, you often feel like you've lost a friend -- to be somewhat melodramatic. So I was looking for a way to keep the book alive a little longer. Creating a game seemed the perfect solution. In this game, I was looking for a way to make riddles, to experiment with shapes and to let the players express their own creativity with clay." Players: 3-6 Ages: 12 and up Playing Time: 60 Minutes

From the Manufacturer

A modern classic, Barbarossa is a great game for family and friends enter the fantastic world of this casual riddle-solving game. Share laughs with your friends or family as you create and master riddles first, each player forms objects out of clay. Since the item is a riddle, your clay figure will only show rough contours. So there's no need to be an artist when you mold the rough shape of a dinosaur or a bug "Is it a living thing? Is it bigger than me? These questions might bring you closer to solving the other players' riddles. When you solve a riddle, you are rewarded with points. You can also earn points when your riddle gets solved, but only if it's not too easy and not too hard You earn bonus points if your riddle is solved in the middle of the game, but you lose points if it is answered early (too easy) or late (too hard) earning points is the key to victory, so put your thinking cap on and mold your best riddles in the clay of Barbarossa.

I prefer the older larger box set, but this is still a good value; although the plastic arrows were a better choice. This is a great family game and my kids (9+) easy handle the game. It is one of our more popular games to get out. It is fun sitting around making abstract clay objects and laugh.

Got this for Christmas and we love it. Guessing and creating your clay object is fun. We only wish it was made for more players!
