Five ants are making their way through a picnic full of food. On your turn, move any ant to the next food in the trail that matches their color, then take the food token directly in front of or behind the ant, saving it to score at the end of the game.
However, you don’t know for sure how much the food is going to be worth until the matching ant makes it to the Anthill at the end of the trail. This creates shared incentives as you work with other players to advance some ants and hold others back.
Every game is different because cards are drawn from four decks to make a unique set of special rules. These drastically change the goals and strategies so you will never play the same game twice (unless you want to).
Your actions will change the incentives for the other players. Can you manage these cascading effects to collect the most valuable food collection? Can you recognize how to change your strategy based on the wildly different rules cards?
