Squeeerrels is a fun strategy game for children 5+ with exciting story line and simple rules.
What is this game about?
Squeeerrels are curious squirrels on a mission to stock up nuts for winter but there are some obstacles – the forrest is populated with other animals. Cute hedgehogs and mean marten are going out of their way to stop the squirrels. The good news is that the squirrels have some helpful gifts.
How to play?
Each player has his own team of three squeeerrels: Leader, Speedy and Strongman. Speed knows how to bypass a hedgehog and get the nut, Strongman can carry 2 nuts and Leader can swap places with Speed or Strongman. All this comes very handy in the game. You need to collect as many nuts as possible!
