Review:
It's a caterpillar fashion show! One to four players each get one caterpillar (a round bead head with a thin rope body) and take turns dressing it by threading colored wooden shapes on the body. The particular shape is determined by rolling two dice. One shows colors, the other shows shapes, and the player must find this exact combination and thread it onto his/her caterpillar. Unlike most games of this type, not every color comes in every shape, so there might be no piece meeting the requirement, in which case that is "just hard luck for [the player]," as the rules put it. The player whose caterpillar first has six shapes on it is the winner.
