In Tricky Trek each player is a predator.
You want to be the fastest predator, but therefore you need energy. To get the energy, you eat prey. Eating a butterfly brings you a little bit of energy (1), a mouse more (2), rabbits more than mice (3), pigs are even more nutritious (4) and eating a deer brings you the most energy (5).
Other predators simultaneously target prey. So try to predict where they go to.
Try to be the first at the end of the trek.
