Players try to get as many valuable animals to run to them as possible. To accomplish that, however, the must first chase the animals from the table. Players try and drive animals towards them by playing animal cards that can chase away other animals. The game lasts several rounds, and during each round players play their card simultaneously.
Which animal chases away which is determined using the old ‘rock-paper-scissors’ principle. Dogs chase away cats, cats chase away mice, mice chase away elephants, and elephants chase away dogs. When it’s clear who’s running to whom, then the players take the cards they won and place them face down in front of themselves. When all cards are played, then the player with the most valuable animals is the winner.
