Fox in the Forest Game
Inspired by classic fairy tales, this whimsical trick-taking card game pits two players against each other. But like any good fairy tale, greed only leads to losing! The deck consists of 3 "suits numbered 1-11. Each round, players are dealt 13 cards from a deck of 33, with the next card's suit serving as "trump for the round. Players take turns playing a card of their choice from their hand, with the larger number winning and scoring a trick for the player. Adding spice to this simple concept are special character abilities on each of the odd-numbered cards; these allow players to lead after losing, to force the other player to play their lowest card in a suit, or even to change the trump suit. The first player to reach 21 points over several rounds wins. An excellent travel game. For 2 players. ~ 30 minutes.
Once upon a time, a woodcutter and his daughter lived in a small village bordering the forest. She had traveled with him and had seen him speak with the forest animals.
