Beavers Be Dammed
Be the best beaver builder!
Compete with your neighboring beaversto build the best habitat for your beaver family!A good beaver knows how to build a good dam. They search for good trees to gnaw down, drag together, and pack them with mud to make sure they stand up to the river waters, setting up a great home for themselves. But they often have to compete with others for what they need...
You and your fellow players each control a beaver clan, and over the course of the game you will draw out your clan's construction efforts on your fork in the river. Taking turns, players will play cards from their hands to win tricks - those being the actions you take to build out your map.
Scouting for resources, digging canals to them, building dams with them, and finally selecting how your personal map scores.Build towards your self-selected scoring conditions better than your competitors, and yours will be the best beaver clan on the river!
