Lecker Mammut!

Hit the cudgel, not the animal!


Unusual hunting in the Stone Age - you do not slay prey with your cudgel, you spot suitable prey and hit the cudgel.

49 cards show seven types of animals - Cave Bear, Wild Boar, Sabre-tooth Tiger, Giant Sloth, Megaceros, Mammoth and Wooly Rhino - once per each of the seven colors, so that each card has a color and an animal. All cards are shuffled and distributed evenly among players.

A general rule applies: During the game, you can only use one hand to play, it is absolutely prohibited to use both hands at the same time.

Players are active player in turn and reveal all your cards one by one. Then the next player reveals all his cards, etc. When at any time in the game three identical animals or three cards of the same color are on display, you hit the cudgel quickly and name the type of animal or the color. The fastest player to do so collects all involved cards for a prize pile and sets them down open-faced, he decides which card goes on top. If you collect more prize piles, they are stacked separately. Take care! Stacks you collect count for triplets with their top card and are taken accordingly. If you make a mistake, you take the next card the active player would have revealed and set it down face-down for a penalty card. When all cards are revealed, you lose a prize pile of your choice, if you have most penalty cards; in case of a tie, all players involved lose a pile. All players then score one point per prize card. After one round per player you win with most points.

Not necessarily hugely innovative, but a nice family game with easy and simple rules, nice for a filler or for families with younger children.
