Splotch! is a stand alone expansion for the base game Croak!.
In the base game, players move pieces around a board attempting to land on pieces of the opposing player while trying to protect one's own queen frog. As players move across tiles, they are flipped over, revealing different items that affect gameplay.
Splotch! follows the same rules as Croak! except for the addition of cards.
Each player draws to 3 cards in his/her hand and may play one card during his/her turn and any number during an opponent's. These cards serve to modify the game by manipulating playing piece positions, cards in a player's hand or in the deck or the mechanics of a turn.
This game also optionally extends the original Croak! to 5 or 6 players.
