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.
I'll echo the sentiments about this game inducing animal noises from the players (at least from me). My wife and I very much enjoy this game, and the initial perception of the amount of luck turns out to be a bit overblown. There is a lot of luck in this game, but I think also a larger amount of strategy than you may perceive at first.
Almost five stars, but due to the theme and luck you need to evaluate whether it seems a game which would appeal to you and your potential opponents. Non-gamers may actually find the chess-like strategy towards the end of rounds difficult and thus get frustrated by consistently lopsided final scores.
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....
