What was intended to be a quick go turned into a five and a half hour session. So, yes, it’s just as addictive as the first.

However, Professor Pester seems to come around every five minutes. I got a load of pinatas from cards and he killed them all. Which is especially nice as the game is refusing to let me scan the cards in again. So they’re gone forever.

Sigh. Why are so many games ruined by one stupid decision? Ruined may be a strong word, but I was getting more and more annoyed as pinata after pinata died until I just had to stop playing.

And looking at the web, it seems that there may not even be an item that stops him coming into your garden any more, meaning you’re going to have to put up with him forever, buying decoy after decoy. (Not that I can even buy a decoy yet, I’ve just seen my wife buy them. She’s much at a higher level than I am.)

It’s no fun having your favourite pinata killed like that, no fun at all.
