1. Animal species: Snow Owl 2. Theme: Racing Building a burrow and raising young without predators getting the young first 3. Main mechanism or genre: Die for burrow building and card drawing for predator avoidance.
4. Why? We need another game with "white" in it to continue with the color scheme. The first two (Leap Frog and Sheer Panic had lots of green (frogs and pasture). Hammeln and Antler have lots of brown tones, and Snow Tails and "SnOWLs" have lots of white. Also, it is time for a flight animal theme.
