About the game:

Into the woods we go! A woodcutter and his daughter live in a small village bordering the forest. She travels with him and sees him speak with the forest animals. These forest animals with their special powers unlock your path to winning.

The Fox in the Forest is a fun and fast trick-taking card game. (What's trick-taking? It's like the card game Hearts, where the first player plays a card of a particular suit and the next player must match the suit and beat the card to win the trick.) The Fox in the Forest is played over 13 tricks, and those tricks ladder to earn you points. But don't get too greedy - too many tricks and you won't win at all! Like card games like Spades? You will love The Fox in the Forest.

For such a small game, this game packs a big strategy punch. And we love that it's designed especially for two players!

Looking for something a little less competitive? The Fox in the Forest Duet is a cooperative version of this game, where you play together.

Why we chose this game for Board's Edge:
  • Strategy - this game gets you thinking; it packs a big punch for such a small game
  • Beauty - a pleasure to behold, each element is thoughtfully designed
  • Classic with a twist - similar to games you know and love (trick-taking card games like Hearts, Spades, or Bridge), but with a twist to make it fresh and interesting
  • 2-player - works great for 2 players (not all games do!), and only two players
