Barrel of Octopuses
by sgraber, published
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?

With as small as these octopuses are, I don't think it will be feasible to print the tentacles with them slightly elevated. I think the easier thing to do would be to heat each arm slightly with a heat gun and bend them up a bit.
In the original, the monkeys' "hands" are like leaf-shaped blades, to facilitate getting them under and through openings in the pile.Â Your octopuses arms actually curl back in a loop... that's going to make the game much more difficult to play.
You *can* pick up a monkey that's flat on the table... you're not going to do that with these octopuses.Â Raising them up a bit, so that only the ends of the arms touch the table, would probably help this.Â But I think you're going to need to redesign those arms to make it playable.Â Take a good look at the Barrel O' Monkeys design and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Actually Wikipedia states: "plural:Â octopuses,Â octopi, orÂ octopodes;" with octopuses the preferred plural.
