As a child I LOVED playing “Hens and Chicks”.  Some people called it Booby Trap.  It was a wooden contraption where you took turns removing round pegs until the entire thing collapsed on itself.  Anyway, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw Haidieh Shafie’s fabulous “sculptruction art things”  Her pieces are rolled scrolls of Farsi text tucked into frames.  Not a game.
