cross haresCross Hares: Testing Ground
Saturday 6-7pm
A fairly straight forward game in which you want to move down a trail from your starting area in order to “defeat” a factory at the end of the line. As you move along the trail, you’ll draw cards, which might be good or bad for you, bad for opponents, or terrible for everyone at the table. You’ll also acquire useful items and specialties, have adventures, and come into conflict with other players. Don’t worry if you’re far back on the path away from everyone else as with the right events or die rolls, you can race ahead of the others! Once you get to the factory, though, you’ll need all of your skills and items to defeat it, so be sure you save some of your strength for that. 2 – 4 Players
