Springtime has come. The animals wake up in search of food. The players are forest keepers and have to protect the animals from the poachers. The poachers have hiding places, but to catch the animals they have to come out of their hiding places and can be catched. You have to work together to surround and catch them.
Every turn has 4 parts:
1. All poachers move by rolling one colour-dice. Green makes them go through the woods to the next hiding place, red through the fields and blue by boat over the water.
2. The forest keepers move one step at a time. From a flower field to a forest and vice versa. You can make an extra step if an area is already guarded.
3. You wake up two animals, they will come out of their dens, the place where you put them on the board. Ducks go into the water, boars to the forest next to the den and deers to the flower fields.
4. You may move one duck, one boar and one deer to the next area. Each area has only enough food for one animal.
When the last poacher is caught, you have won!
You lost if one animal is cought by a poacher, or if an animal has not enough food.
