.. and do the eyes of the tree move?
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

The die comes with the set. There are no rules or even an interpretation of what all the symbols are supposed to mean. I like that; kids can make up their own meanings to play! The eyes are closed until you turn one of the branches. You place the die in the top of the tree, & when the branch is turned the eyes open & the die falls out of the mouth. Releasing the branch causes the eyes to snap back into place.

One could use that tree & die as a sort of fortune teller, a playmo "magic eight ball" or i ching  :deco:

I think fortune teller is the intent. In the cartoon they go there to ask questions. Treat it like a magic 8 ball. Ask the question first then drop the die to see your answer.

We all know what the answer to that question would be. <*)
