Man Vs Foot
A quick playing card game for two where Bigfoot and the clever Cryptozoologist attempt to outwit each other! Will Bigfoot's hideaways be discovered, leaving him with nowhere to go, or will the Cryptozoologist be left frustrated?
This new game from up-and-coming designer Scott Almes is the ultimate battle of wits! Depending on what side you're on, you'll be playing a very different game - The Cryptozoologist is laying traps and attempting to trick the Bigfoot who must deduce and work out what's the best option...
In this game, one player is a Cryptozoologist hunting for an elusive Bigfoot, while the other player is a Bigfoot just minding his own business and trying to stay hidden.
Each round, the Cryptozoologist lays out two paths peppered with secret sensors and waits for the Bigfoot to come along and choose a path. The sensors tripped by the Bigfoot give the Cryptozoologist clues about the locations of the Bigfoot’s five lairs.
The Cryptozoologist wins if all five lairs are discovered in six rounds, otherwise, the Bigfoot slips quietly into the woods with a grin.
The game is played over 6 rounds and each round is made up of the following five phases:
1. Draw Cards and Create Paths
The Cryptozoologist draws 6 cards from the Path deck, reviews the cards, and then divides the cards into two paths laid out face-‐down on the table. A path may have as few as one card, but all of the cards must be used in both paths.
2. Choose A Path
The Bigfoot chooses one path and leaves the other path to the Cryptozoologist.
3. Resolve Paths
Players simultaneously flip over their Path cards.
4. Make A Guess
Using the information shown on resolved Sensor cards, the Cryptozoologist may make one guess each round as to the name on one of the Bigfoot’s undiscovered lair cards. The Cryptozoologist is not required to make a guess every round.
If the guessed card is among the Bigfoot’s undiscovered lairs, the Bigfoot places the card on the table near the Cryptozoologist. If this was the last undiscovered lair, the Cryptozoologist has trapped the Bigfoot and has won the game! If the Bigfoot still has undiscovered lairs, the game continues.
Win Some, Lose Some
The Cryptozoologist wins if all five of the Bigfoot’s lairs were discovered before the round marker reaches the END space. If the round marker makes it to the END space, the game is over and the Bigfoot wins!

Risks and challenges
As we enter the crowdfunding phase, Bigfoot is nearly "Print Ready," but we have set an extended delivery date to be on the safe side. Every game project is subject to potential production delays, but we believe we've allowed enough wiggle-room for Bigfoot.
The final challenge is getting the game and rewards out to the backers. Game Salute is well versed in Kickstarter reward fulfillment and we are prepared to meet this challenge for Bigfoot.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
