    Allow me to present game number 2 in my AVENTYR series,

    Squirrel Quest.  
    The story is: 

    You are a squirrel going out to gather food, some to eat now and some to store for the coming winter. There are plenty of nuts, pine seeds and mushrooms in the forest but, now that summer has faded, you don't have long to collect them.  There are many squirrels out doing the same.  Also, there are other animals going about that will hinder your efforts and may even steal what you've already collected. You need to be both clever and lucky to avoid them.

    Your aim is to be the squirrel that has collected the most food by the time winter arrives.

    This is a good family game which is fun, fast paced and can be played by as few as one person or as many as can fit around the table with the board on it.
    The rules are easy to read and understand by young and old alike.  The game is suitable for anyone over the age of 8 years.

    A 40 turn game takes only about 15-20 minutes to play per person so it's not long and boring like some other board games.  For an even quicker game, restrict the turns to 30.

    Important note ; The price you see here gets you the box containing the game board, 20 gameplay cards, 2 x 6 sided dice, 1 x 4 sided dice, 1 x 20 sided dice and 6 playing pieces.
    What is NOT included is the 'How to Play' 
    sheet and  also the score/turn recording sheet.
    Both of these ARE NECESSARY  to play the game but, happily, they are available 
    without charge as downloads via the links below.

     The 'How to Play' sheet (2 A4 sides)    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MCLBsIR3AbXr_w1GbhRujl5799gyVd_X/view?usp=sharing

     The score / turn sheet  (1 A4 side)    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rMvi-mLYziW-gl36YhaBYntbhXar7-ic/view?usp=sharing

    You are very welcome to download these sheets before you buy to help you decide if this game is suitable for your needs.

    I will be continuing to add to the AVENTYR series of games with the aim of encouraging more face to face social interaction of people around a table.

    I hope you DO buy a copy as I am certain that it will  prove to be very good value for money due the amount of fun it will provide to many people.
