Product Description

Players are cheapskate construction bosses working to complete as many buildings as they can in one year, using the minimal amount of material. Convincing other players that your materials aren't "cheap" is all part of the fun. To increase their profits, the contractors may use cheap materials in place of the expensive ones. To counter this practice, building inspectors make random inspections of construction sites to ensure that safe buildings are being constructed. Using bribery and clever play, cheapskate builders try to avoid building inspections and complete their buildings cheaply. However, builders that are caught using inferior materials must remove the building and start over, losing the time and materials already spent.

Got Clay?
June 12, 2000

I open up Pfusch and was surprised with the clay inside. One surprise is in Phoenix it was all but melted due to the UPS putting the box outside. Not a complaint mind you but it was funny to me. So I put the clay in the freezer and open up Burp first instead.

After the bodily function-named game, I rescued the clay and we where playing Pfusch. This is a construction game and I knew nothing about it but that. As a general building contractor/gamer I had to have the game regardless of Stars. Well it has great bits and clay. The game involves making clay (plaster) blocks by either building the right way (with real wood inside the plaster). Or the cheap sneaky way with all plaster (clay only). I thought I was in real trouble when I saw my competition's first building block. His was perfect little squares and mine were ugly clumps of clay. I plan to get better at clay molding in the future. Inspections are done with a toothpick and the suspense is the fun of this poker meets craft class competition. My friend lost his contractor's license so I won by default. It is well worth the money and the time you spend on this is just fun. One star shy of 5 because it is a light fun game for everyone, not a gamer's game like El Grande or Tikal.

Happy Pfusching (fudging)!
