The Bud reminds me of the Vulcan game of Kal-toh. Players take turns joining one twig to another but the connected ends must be the same color. As the tree gets larger, one must strategically place their twigs to prevent the entire unit from falling over. It’s one of those games that would totally drive me crazy but I would still play it again and again.
