What happens when the hunter becomes the hunted? One player takes the role of the hunters and the lumberjacks; the other takes the role of the foxes and the bears. Both players hunt each other!
At first, the forest lies peacefully under the face down tiles. As the players turn the tiles over and move them on the board, the forest awakens and the hunt destroys the serenity of the forest. The lumberjacks cut swaths through the forest to provide hunting fields for the hunters. The bears then use these same aisles to track the hunters and the lumberjacks.
The two sides are balanced with luck dominating the early game, but skill taking over at the end. Good hunting!
This is one of my favorite two player games! The sound effects add great flavour.
With the written rules, there is a bit too much luck, which is why I suggest a variant: Before the game begins, each player selects ~5 random tiles and places them on the board. It adds a significant amount of strategy and planning to the game.
I always have bad luck playing this game, but it is true what some of the other reviewers had said about the chance factor. I think it's more chance driven then Hera and Zues, and slightly more strategic than Lost Cities. Overal not a bad game, would have been more challenging if each player can choose where to place his tiles, or at least some of them at the beginning.
It's time for some big-game hunting! Place the 49 tiles facedown on the 7 x 7 forest. Players in turn either flip over a facedown tile, or move a faceup one. Hunters and lumberjacks compete with foxes and bears for the most points' worth of captured tiles. There are also neutral tiles with ducks, pheasants, and trees. Each tile has its own way of moving and capturing, and may only capture a subset of the other tiles. The game ends five moves after all tiles are faceup. Who's hunting whom? Hmm....
