The Fox in the Forest is a trick-taking game for two players. Score points by winning more tricks than your opponent, but not too many. If you get greedy, you will fall like the villain in so many tales.

On a turn, a player places a tile depicting various color arrangements, and every player receives lantern cards based on the tile placed. Players dedicate sets of lantern cards to gain honor and favor.

The Fox in the Forest game was designed by Joshua Buergel, illustrated by Jennifer L. Meyer, and published by Foxtrot Games in association with Renegade Game Studios. 

Foxtrot Games is an independent publisher committed to beautiful, engaging, and approachable board games such as Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, The Fox in the Forest, Sundae Split, World's Fair 1893, and Spy Club.  Find out more at:
