Product Description

Pick & Pack is a two-player strategy game that is easy to learn and typically plays in 15-20 minutes. Players are workers in an apple-packing factory, racing to get their apple crates packed and ready for shipping. The catch is, they are both using the same tray-grabbing machinery to load their crates with trays. This unfortunate contention for the loading machinery manifests itself in the game as one player being constrained to play his moves left to right across the rows of the board, and the other player constrained to play up and down along the columns of the board.

Thirty-six tiles representing apple trays (containing from 1 to 6 apples) are set up at random on the 6x6 grid in the center of the board. A pawn representing the position of the mechanized "grabber" is placed over the (only) tray containing 6 apples. The two players each have 12 action tiles that they place around the four sides of the grid. Each player starts with four empty crates into which they pack trays of apples.

On a player's turn, he may move the grabber from its current position to another square in the grid (constrained to the player's specific direction). The tray at that position is placed into one of his packing crates. If he moves the grabber to an empty square, he may activate one of his action tiles in the corresponding row; actions include stealing trays in the opponent's crates and marking your own crates as premium apples (thus making them more valuable). At the end of the game, players tally up the value of the apples in their four crates, and the player with the highest score wins.
