Product Description

Welcome to Savannah Tails -- the game of fast and furious ostrich racing. Play as either Albrecht, Alexandra, Enzo, Nnelg or Mathilda as you race for glory through the African savannah. However, winning the race is the least of your worries. Cheetahs will try to eat you. Crocodiles will try to eat you. Warthogs will probably try to ignore you. Elephants are just in the way. The less said about porcupines the better.

The game is for 2-5 adventurous flightless birds. It plays quickly and can be learned in minutes. Players have their own deck of ostrich cards from which they draw a hand of 4s -- these are used to move your ostrich along colored ostrich footprints. You must end your turn on a footprint which matches the colour of the card you played. In addition, bonuses can be received at water holes. These include Whacky Wings, Boinnnggg and Neckstretch. Some are for one time use while others allow a benefit for the rest of the game.

The game will include 25 track sections allowing players to once again design their own races. Some of these feature "unhelpful" animals. Special tracks involving a rope bridge, quicksand and a sand dune are also included.
