About this project
It's a perfect day for a picnic! The park fills with families, spreading their blankets, and setting out colourful plates loaded with delicious treats.
But there has never been a picnic without uninvited guests ... ANTS!!
In Problem Picnic: Attack of the Ants, players are competing ant colonies trying to steal the best plates of food from the picnic blankets. In this 2-4 player, dice-rolling dexterity game, the dice are your ants. Roll them onto the picnic cards, trying to get the most ants onto the foods and plate colours you want. Different custom dice at your disposal represent your industrious Workers, speedy Scouts, and sturdy Soldiers. At the end of the day, the colony that has arranged their stolen plates to best satisfy the whims of the Queen will earn the most points and win the game!
*Prototype components shown here; some art will change!
Roll your different ant dice onto the picnic cards. At the end of a round if you have the most ants on a card, take it and arrange it in your colony for maximum scoring advantage. Here's an animation that helps explain it:

Risks and challenges
We feel that we have few challenges to overcome for this project. We are using the same artist and manufacturer for Problem Picnic: Attack of the Ants, as we did for Foodfighters. This means we really know what we are dealing with. They are reliable and create a very solid, and quality product.
With this in mind, this is our first time using multiple shipping options. We are optimistic that everything will go as planned. Our shipping partners have fulfilled many games that you likely already have. We have full faith that your games will be delivered to you safe and in a timely fashion.
Our ultimate goal is transparency. We want you to be happy! We promise to keep you in the know every step of the way. If you have any questions, send us a message, email us, or simply comment on the campaign. We will try to get back to you as soon as humanly possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
