In Moose Quest, you help your moose herd migrate, while maintaining their numbers against predators and the terrain you attempt to cross. The more dangerous the terrain, the more it's worth. Each player heads a herd, and attempts to take the most valuable course to Green Pastures.
The trek is represented by a deck of cards with Green Pastures at the bottom. There is also a moose deck from which your herds may grow. Occasionally (upon rolling doubles), you will have a "moosehap": These may be immediate events, or predators you can save to unleash on a competing herd.
