S'Quarrels Review and Giveaway!

Hi Neighbors,

Here is another great game for Family Fun Night! It is called S'quarrels. It is sort of squirrel quarrels. We met the creator of S'Quarrels at CHITAG in November. The whole idea is to hide away the most acorns before winter. The game is for 2-6 players. A word of advice; more than 2 makes the game a lot more fun. My two daughters played together first, but when we added their 2 other sisters and myself the game really picked up. S'quarrels comes with Action Cards, Number Cards and Specialty Cards. All cards are shuffled together, each player receives seven cards. If you receive an Action Card with your beginning cards, place them in a discard pile and draw again until you have 7 number cards. Your Action Cards will remain in the discard pile, unless the Winter Card is in the pile. Then you need to shuffle it back into the stack of cards. The Action Cards are Quarrels, Hoards, Ambushes, Whirlwinds, and Winter. Once everyone has seven number cards the playing begins. The first person draws one card, if it is a number card they place it in with their other cards. If it is an Action Card they need to follow through on the action. I will explain those in just a minute. After they have either put the number card in their hand or followed through on the action they may choose to place their sets in their storage pile. A set is three of a number, 3 ones, or twos, etc. Once completed they place one card from their hand into a Hoard Pile. The play then moves to the next person

.

Now let me explain the S'Quarrels Action Cards. If you draw a Quarrels Card, every one lays one card from their hand down at the same time. The person with the card with the highest number gets to keep all of them. When the Hoard Card is drawn the player who drew it, lays it on the table and the first person to slap their hand on the Hoard Pile receives the pile. The person who drew the Hoard card may not participate. With the Ambush Card the person who draws it is allowed to take one card from every player. Whirlwinds are really fun. The person who draws this card takes everyone's cards and shuffles them together and then passes them back out! And last but not least there is the Winter Card. When this card is drawn the game ends and everyone adds up their points.



There are also 2 Specialty Cards. 1 Golden Acorn and 1 Rotten Acorn. If you are holding the Golden Acorn at the end of the game you get 5 extra points. If you have the Rotten Acorn, you lose 5 points.

This is just a basic description of the game. There are some exceptions but you can read about those if you purchase a game. You can purchase S'Quarrels online for $12.99 at there website, or you can check their store locator to find out if a retailer near you carries this game.





Let me tell you that this would be a great Family Fun Night game. We all enjoyed it and my youngest kept asking to play another round. Like I said in the beginning though the more playing the more fun it becomes. Just look at the pictures and video.

The winner of this giveaway will receive their own copy of S'Quarrels!

i learned that in October of 2007 the creator found themselves "staring out the window watching a squirrel that was scavenging for nuts under the pine trees that surrounded our home. At that moment I felt inspired"

Met the creator of Squarrels back in November at Uncles Games in the Spokane Valley mall. It's a fun game and my daughters and I enjoy playing it. FYI, this is a good game for a variety of ages, my daughters are 15 and older.
