An original new board game for ages 7 and up, set in the sun-baked Serengeti Plain. Eight animals adventure through remote African trails searching for secrets that will enlighten their group relationships. They overcome dangers that cloud their minds and freeze their powers of action. Learning to work as a team they speed the accomplishment of their vital goal. Join them in their travels through the wild lands under the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro.
There's a friendly spirit of community and fun without bankrupting or eliminating your fellow players. Working toward a common goal, players of different ages and abilities can enjoy the game with no fear of being excluded or put down. There are only winners in this game and players may find that life can be richer if we ease up on some of our over-competitive habits.
Though aimed at players aged 7 and older, younger players can join in with help as to reading and strategy. So it's ideal for the whole family to have quality time together. And perfect for a group of friends or school and camp groups to play. Or it may be played alone when others aren't available. It's also a great group project to download, print and assemble - another kind of cooperative activity.
Animal Allies may have from 1 to 8 players. The game board is 15 x 37 inches, which you can print in 8 sections on letter size card stock. Rules, Cards and Animals are on 7 additional pages. The only materials you need are some card stock, foamcore and a pair of dice. You don't even need paper and pencil unless you want to write down any new ideas or special rules to customize the game more to your liking. I'd love to hear any thoughts or questions you have so we can improve the game together.
