From the manufacturer, "Under a nearby acorn tree, players will undertake the rigorous task of collecting acorns before winter sets in. Other Squirrels are all trying to take them before you do. Whirlwinds, Ambushing, Quarreling, and Hoarding are all just part of the fun. Get the coveted Gold Acorn but watch out for the dreaded Rotten Acorn. The more acorns you get the better chance you have of surviving winter! In this fast paced card game the player who stores the most acorns come winter is the winner!"
So appreciated your getting the Squarrel games out pronto. We are using them as Christmas gifts after playing the game just before we ordered them.
