About

In Squirreling' Around you play as Jan, Kris, Xo, or Ryann - four forest pals who want to collect the best sets of nuts and berries. 

On their turn players will place down a card, which will feature a berry or acorn on all four sides. They may orient the card in any way they'd like to complete their desirable sets and hopefully not assist their opponents with doing the same. 

If they're successful all players obtain their rewards. Though, if the tree is knocked over all other players will get to take a nut of their choice, except the pesky squirrel that knocked the tree over. Though fret not, they will start the next round. The game ends when the tree has fallen over three times, at which point all players check to see who's the champion of their friendly competition. That's it! A game fun for all ages.

Risks and challenges

This is the second Kickstarter for Quick Simple Fun and we're no stranger to game design, development, manufacturing, or distribution. Our first Kickstarter project, Ore; The Mining Game is currently being manufactured. We've produced a plethora of games that went directly to retail including our smash hit title, Muse, as well.

Furthermore, Squirrelin' Around is completely finalized. The art assets are complete and it has undergone significant game development over the past 2 years. It will be ready to print as soon as the campaign funds.

Any campaign has risks, but we've done our research and have mitigated as many as possible.
