This is a game for people who like to organise things. You are in charge of a warehouse and must manage 100s of items of stock. These identical square boxes are labelled with rudimentary icons. On your own or with another player, you must decipher what each icon depicts and invent ways to categorise them. Customers then appear wanting specific combinations of products and you have limited time to find and deliver them.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Although there is an element of pressure in delivering the items to customers. There is no penalty for failure and the stock take levels give you time to get organised.
