Our lower level is on a raised crawlspace due to radon mitigation and potential expansive clay soil.

Unfortunately we have outside air being pumped through that crawl space 24/7. Great in the summer but can be a bit uncomfortable in winter. I put 1” hard foam interlocking squares down under the carpet in the hobby room and that gave me about a 4 or 5 degree increase. The game room just has carpet/pad and I can feel the difference on my toeses...

This seems to be a trend. My lovely wife begged me to put in-floor heating in the KZ, but it was another $1500 (21 years ago) and I thought I was being thrifty. We've spent that and more on electric heat since then, and its nowhere near as cozy!

Curse. Curse.

My game room also has no heating or cooling except these archaic things called windows. Not bad for cooling, but for heating they are pretty poor

Weather also may play a role. It’s warm where I am, which softens them up more.
So true, gets cold in our games room which keeps things pretty solid and unyielding. We find building the trees a little like hard work but then pushing them into the stumps not so much as long as you line up the peg to the stump accurately and keep the downforce perpendicular to the tile with a little twist action.

Now we come to think of it, the games room being cold (no central heating) is probably why pushing in those CBS pegs still hurts our paws :(

After being in place for a few days, i saw no issues on the recent game night. One tree had fallen over but I think I did not put it together firmly enough as the trees are new and inserting the pin is a bit difficult. I am sure it will be easier later, the same with CBS.

We have had one pin stick in the stump pulling it from the trunk when we removed the tree, this happens occasionally with CBS pegs.

You just need a pair of plyers to pull it out and reinsert it into the trunk, then after a few days it seems to be solidly in.

The DF pins also don't do any favors as they have grooves that are vertical instead of horizontal, so there's not a lot of friction to hold pins in place; it's all squeezy pressure. See, I can use big words too! ;)
That's why you twist them apart, rather than just pull. ;)
