We pop out the fold-up clouds while I explain how...

Petrichor,” says my daughter after seeing the austere beauty of the white box with a shining raindrop. “That means the smell of rain”. I wonder if she’s read it straight off the box since the definition is there in small print. But she says she’s read it in one of those lists of obscure words that no-one uses, and should. It’s enough to inspire her to play, for which I’m grateful.

Now that's some writing :)

My only issue with the game, and it's probably only me reading the rules wrong, seemed to be the inability to be able to add your own rain to any clouds that you didn't have a droplet in already. In the games I played, my son created as many clouds as possible, thus making it almost impossible for me to gain any ground back, unless it was through a wind action, by joining with a could I had managed to make. It was however one of those games where the theme fitted precisely with the mechanics, and they were having so much fun, that we ended up both having fun.
