"Birds and Squirrels" is just like watching birds on a powerline but, much more exciting and fast paced. Up to 6 people take turns flipping cards over onto power lines. Once someone has a full perch of cards they may count the birds up and add them to their score.

Watch out for hawks that chase everyone's birds away and squirrels that scare off your own cards. After filling a line with bird cards and empty cards you can take your score as it stands or, you can try to fill in the empty card spots with more birds. You do run the risk of getting a squirrel or a hawk, though.

After a line is successfully cleared, pick up another card to get going. Just add your points to your score and, then it is the next player's turn again. The game is over when someone reaches a set number of points.

I generally play to 30 but you can play up to whatever score you want. Each deck will come with one of five white raven card designs. The white raven can be used as just a normal bird, as a score doubler, or as a requirement to win the game. It's for you to decide because it is wild!

All cards in the deck are different and there are no repeats. I put a lot of work into the design and used species of black bird from all over the world. Every expansion after this will also feature new different settings sometimes with new foes! so we bring you to the first such prize...

"Birds & Squirrels: Big City" edition! For even more awesome birds and squirrels action. Big City Edition trades squirrels for rats, black birds for pigeons, hawks for car horns, and white ravens for that one white dove that is always hanging out with the other birds.
