Description Edit | History

It's a hardscrabble life for emu ranchers like yourself, raising exotic birds for foreign markets. With the high cost for every bird you hatch, it probably won't be worth it in the end. You can't tell at the beginning of the year which of the six bird varieties will do best, and beware the birds with exceptional plumage! If they thrive, they can be worth big money — but if they go wrong, they can bankrupt your ranch.

In Emu Ranchers, a Decktet game for two players, each bird on your ranch is represented by a stack of cards. Cards in a single bird stack must all share a suit and must be in rank order. At the end of the hand, the value of a bird is determined by the total of the number cards in the stack. If the total is too low, then you can end up losing money on a bird. An Ace or Crown makes the stack worth more: more profit if you can cover expenses, but more loss if you can't. The object, naturally enough, is to raise profitable birds.

Emu Ranchers is inspired by Lost Cities, with differences in game play resulting from the structure of the Decktet.

2 Reference cards for Emu themed Decktet
I whipped this up to help players who are new to Emu Ranchers that may have gotten their hands on an Emu themed Decktet. It also is helpful for us veterans because it's really hard to track information when I have to remember what color corresponds to what! To make this file I modified an existing Decktet reference card file.

9 Emu Ranchers - Rules
I created a file using the Emu Ranchers page at the Decktet Website on the Internet. The rules are taken from that page. These rules are by P.D. Magnus, offered under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license. The bird variety montage is based on CC-licensed photos by Flickr users Donovan Mueller, Matthew Romack, Marcus Smith, Rauch-Dickson, Scott 48074, and Brian Marshall.
