All summer long, the squirrels hide nuts and fruits in hollow tree trunks, hoping they can retrieve them come winter — provided that they can remember where they hid everything! Each turn therefore yields two phases: summer and winter. During the summer, the squirrels hide their food, i.e., play their cards; in wintertime, they search the trees to try to find things. The best fed squirrel at the end of the game wins!
Nutz! is a light and fast-paced double-guessing card game, with just a bit of memory added.
