The counters circle the board, eternally looking for a bus to take them to Orpington.
The most shaggable counter, the goat leaves behind a trail of odour.

The least shaggable counter, the fnurdle is looking for some technology boxes in Orpington.

Rich Uncle Pennybags
He got lost in the wrong game, now he must find a bus that goes to Orpington! He's probably shaggable, but would you?
It is indeed eeble sonk, but it must get to Orpington by bus! I'd prefer not to mention the shaggability of this one.
