Barrel of Octopuses
by sgraber, published
This game harkens back to the 1965 Barrel of Monkeys game originally made by Lakeside Toys (now made by Milton Bradley). Each game came with a colored barrel and twelve monkeys the same color as the barrel. The instructions of the game stated: "Dump monkeys onto table. Pick up one monkey by an arm. Hook other arm through a second monkey's arm. Continue making a chain. Your turn is over when a monkey is dropped."
My version uses twelve octopuses instead of monkeys and features a custom octopus graphic on both the top and bottom of the barrel. How many can you pick up?
