Description

OBJECT
To avoid having your animals taken into captivity. The winner of the game is the player who has the last animal or animals free.

Players follow in turn, placing an animal and a fence. When all animals are entered on the board play continues in the same way except that a player now moves one of his animals as well as placing a fence. Once placed, fences can not be moved.
Animals can not jump fences, but can jump each other providing there is a free space immediately after the last animal.

A very nice, interesting game. It looks deceptively simple at first, but then it gives you those very difficult choices, from a short array of available ones, that I appreciate so much in a well-designed game. The theme might be completely pasted-on, but the gameplay is very nice.

Sounds interesting. I may be willing to trade for a copy.

This is one of my childhood unfavourites. I think this is one of the first games I was disappointed with. I still have it though.

Fun to play with younger family members - gets the kids thinking, but can quickly get formulaic with older players.
