Releasing Summer 2017
San Diego, CA (March 10th, 2017) — Renegade Game Studios™ and Foxtrot Games are excited to announce their next partnership game, The Fox in the Forest by Joshua Buergel. This new two-player trick taking game is the latest co-published game from these two studios. Their previous games include Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, Lanterns: The Emperor's Gifts, and World's Fair 1893.
Once upon a time, a woodcutter and his daughter lived in a small village bordering the forest. She had traveled with him and had seen him speak with the forest animals.
The Fox in the Forest is a trick-taking game for 2 players. Utilize the special abilities on the Fairy Tale characters to change the trump suit, lead even after you lose a trick, and more. The beautiful illustrations of the unique characters will help you quickly analyze your options.
Score points by winning more tricks than your opponent, but don't get greedy! Win too many tricks, and you will fall like the villain in so many fairy tales.
"The Fox in the Forest is a beautiful and familiar feeling game," says Renegade President Scott Gaeta. "It pairs classic trick-taking mechanics with a fresh and modern twist. I love games like this because they can really open the door to non-gamers and invite them into our world."
"The custom deck, the special abilities on the cards, and the high-low scoring all bring the tension and surprises of trick-taking into a great two player experience," says Randy Hoyt, owner of Foxtrot Games. "I love trick-taking games, and I'm excited to partner with Renegade again to share the unique elements of this game with the world."
This will be the second game in the small card game line that began with The Blood of an Englishman by Dan Cassar. Future games in this line will release later this year. Look for it in hobby stores summer 2017. The Fox in the Forest will have an MSRP of $15, is designed for two players to enjoy for approximately 30 min per game, and will intrigue gamers ages 10 and up.
