Found 9th Aug 2010
my mums desperate to find a game she used to play as a kid (in the 70s)
what i can glean from her is that you had a board with dials or tiles on it(not sure i heard her right, so unsure which) with shape parts on, and you had to make shapes using them, and to find out what shape u made you had to pick up cards, your opponent didnt know what shape was on your card. you took it in turns to move a dial/tile until you made the shape, and when u'd managed it you had to put your card down.
probably a bad description but does anyone recognize what im describing? im starting to believe she made it up and eve more of along shot, does anyone have it? thankyou

I think it is amoeba, she did say she thought it was called something like that but didnt put that on here incase the name influenced people thoughts if you know what i mean, so if you are saying the same that must be it. iv just bought one for £15 on another site, saw the ebay ones!! gonna put it away for xmas for her, just got2 try and get her to stop looking for it herself now, ill be unimpressed if she finds one. i may tell her its called something else thankyou fo your help, hopefull iv done good.
