Mimic is a new game by a first time publisher, Funmaker Games. Players attempt to collect sets of like animals of the same color from a set of cards laid out on a 7 x 7 card grid. Players also have a set of special power cards that allow you to bend the rules (play an extra card, etc.) The first player to get rid of their cubes wins the game.
From the publisher:
MIMIC is a quick strategic card game based on a new twist on set building.
Two ways to play:
BASIC and ADVANCED
Your goal is to strategically utilize the Power Cards in the game, your wit, and a little bit of luck to create the necessary sets of Mimic Cards that would enable you to place your Cubes and win the game.
It originally was a 2-3 player game,
but NOW EXPANDED FOR 1-4 PLAYERS AND TEAM PLAY
It takes from 20 to 30 minutes to play.
