Long ago a great mother tigress had four cubs.
After many days she instructed her growing tigers, “Go out into the far reaches of the world and seek your fortunes. Hunt for prey to earn your stripes and become powerful. Have many wonderful adventures. When one of you returns to me full-grown, I will summon all the rest. On that day you will reveal to me your jewels and accomplishments. The greatest of you will rule over all my domain.”
You are a young tiger with no stripes! You have been sent out into the wide world to prove your worth and become truly great. You must hunt for food to earn your stripes. You must also collect jewels to build your fortune. Finally, you may experience dangerous adventures, adding to your success. The tiger who scores the most points wins.
Created by Isabel duBarry, Tiger Stripes will be a fun, bright addition to your family's collection!
Standard Play Mode
Your tiger has no stripes! Earn them by hunting for food or searching for valuable jewels. Players do this by choosing either a "Stalk" card or an "Explore" card.
The "Stalk" cards include various animals worth a number of stripes. Monkeys let you add one stripe to your tiger, snakes add two, deer add three and boars add four. However, this deck contains several "Give One Stripe to Any Tiger" cards, so don't push your luck too far!
On the other hand, players may choose an "Explore" card. These cards contain various numbers of jewels worth one point each. These add directly to your score.
When a tiger gains all ten of its stripes, the game is over. Players count up how many points they have from jewels, then subtract two points for each missing stripe on their board (each board holds up to ten stripes). The player with the highest score wins!
Advanced Play Mode
Adventure Cards add a lot of depth and replayability, introducing sets and conditions that you may fulfill by the end of the game for big bonuses! Adventure cards may encourage you to dig deeply for certain jewels, or take your chances searching for specific animals.
Kids and adults alike will find the Adventure deck an exciting addition to play, while still maintaining the fast, fun game framework of the Standard game mode.

Risks and challenges
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 Tiger Stripes.
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 Tiger Stripes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
