About

The powerline strip.
The powerline strip.

Hello there!

Would you like to play a fast-paced and easy to learn game that you can teach anyone even people you don't share a language with?

Are you traveling out of the country and have a desire to get to know people who don't speak the same language as yourself?

This game can be played to help bridge language gaps between people who have not yet learned to speak each other's languages.

Do you work in a school or are you working with people who have developmental issues? 

"Birds and Squirrels" can be used for people with developmental problems to help them count and give their brains faster reflexes. because it only involves pictures and not words. It helps the brain to focus on the counting aspect of how the game is played.

Are you none of the above?

Hey, me too! "Birds and Squirrels" was designed to be a party game originally. It really works for fast, action-packed gameplay with some buddies. It just happened to turn out that it is also good for communicating with foreigners also good for children with developmental issues as it helps them to count faster.

"Birds and Squirrels" is just like watching birds on a powerline but, a game. You take turns flipping cards over onto your perch/powerline. Once you have a full perch of cards you may count the birds up and add them to your score. Watch out for hawks that chase everyone's birds away and squirrels that run just your own birds away. After filling a line with bird cards and empty cards you can take your score as it stands or, you can try to fill in the empty card spots with more birds. You do run the risk of getting a squirrel or a hawk, though. After a line is successfully cleared pick up another card to get going, add your points to your score and, then it is the next player's turn again. The game is over when someone reaches a set number of points. I generally play to 30 but you can play up to whatever score you want.

Each deck will come with one of five white raven card designs. The white raven can be used as just a normal bird, as a score doubler, or as a requirement to win the game. It's for you to decide. Because, it is wild!

Buy an extra deck to play with 4 or more players or just make it harder to tell how many hawks are left and eliminate all the shuffling.

Safe for all ages under supervision. But, we say 4 and up!

Risks and challenges

We plan on having this game in the mail and on it's way to you roughly five weeks after the campaign ends. This is our second Kickstarter game. So, we know our printers and we have all the means to get you our totally rad stuff. Thanks for checking us out! We set the price as low as we could just because we don't care as much about money as we do about you having fun. Riches can come later for now let's just start the party.
