Tally Ho! Game
Hunting season has begun, and the lumberjacks tag along to clear the forest. But this time, the animals are ready to fight back! One player controls the humans and the opponent controls the animals. At the game's beginning, 48 tiles (bears & foxes, hunters & lumberjacks, and trees, ducks, & pheasants) are shuffled and placed face-down. Each turn, players can either turn over a tile or move a tile. A tile placed onto another tile captures that piece and it is moved off the board, creating points for the player at the end of the round. Bears capture hunters & lumberjacks; foxes capture birds; lumberjacks capture trees; and hunters capture bears, foxes, and birds! As tiles are flipped, moved, and captured, the board opens up and opportunities for points become scarce. Once all tiles have been flipped, it's a scramble to either help your tiles escape out the four entrances, or capture as many remaining tiles as possible. After five rounds, the game ends, and the player with the most points wins. Though a simple concept, the game is filled with moments of excitement and disappointment. 2 players; 30 minutes.
The hunter becomes the hunted in this humorous two-player game! One player picks up the axe and rifle to assume the roles of lumberjacks and hunters, while the other player slips into the furs of foxes and bears. Both parties hunt ducks and pheasants and each other to earn points! At first, the forest is peaceful under a canopy of unrevealed tiles. But as the tiles are flipped, pandemonium breaks out among the pines. The lumberjack hacks away at the trees to give the hunter a clear shot at the fox. But the bear is right behind him, ready to stand up to these human bullies. The chances are equally balanced between the animals and the humans. In the beginning, luck runs the show. But as the hunting continues, the players must become increasingly strategic to prevail. Happy Hunting!
