Draw when it’s your turn

Overview

In your turn, draw an animal card and place the animal.

Noah's Ark

If you drop another animal or touch it, you will fail.

Noah's Ark

Keep the dropped or touched animals in front of you.

On your turn, instead of drawing a card, put an animal in front of you.


When there is an animal in front of you, you can’t draw a card even in your turn.

The end of the game


① The deck runs out
② Someone drops all the animals


End with either.

ooouch!

The player who dropped everything loses immediately.
The ranking is decided by the number of cards of the remaining people.

Final thoughts

For me, the protagonist of this game isn’t an elephant made too big compared to other figures …

Noah's Ark

Actually it’s a crocodile!

Noah's Ark

During the game,

at the beginning, everyone doesn’t put it in the center.

Noah's Ark

Because,

elephants can only be placed in the center or

Noah's Ark

on the other side of the group of animals.

Noah's Ark

Everyone thinks, “I might draw an elephant card.”
That’s why everyone leaves the center empty.

But when there is no place to put it anymore and someone puts something in the middle

Noah's Ark

If you draw an elephant card, you will lose.

Noah's Ark

He is challenging …

Noah's Ark

but it will be failure.

Noah's Ark

How animals fall is fun.

Once all of one side falls, the animal on the other side gets caught in the middle but…

Noah's Ark

Eventually, the weight is out of balance, leaning to the other side and all falling.

Noah's Ark

I like this movement because it looks like a ship. The time difference is good.

Most of the final stages are sudden deaths that you lose immediately when you draw an elephant card.

Noah's Ark

I don’t want to draw an elephant card …

However, what comes out at this time is the hidden protagonist, the crocodile!

Noah's Ark

If you arrange the crocodile nicely …like this…

Noah's Ark

When you draw the elephant card, if you put it on the other side of the crocodile, it will stick in the middle like this …

Noah's Ark

When the swing back comes to the other side, it may get caught and remain!

Noah's Ark

No matter how many cards you have, if you drop them all, you lose. You can avoid this!

Noah's Ark

An alligator are remaining!

The last chance that only you know when there is no place to put an elephant anymore! (Success if you are lucky)

Crocodile strategy.

It’s fun when I am preparing.

Compared to the person who puts the last elephant without thinking, the chances of winning should be a few percent higher!

It’s fun to find a strategy to increase my winning percentage in games where everyone doesn’t really care about winning.

I took it to a family camp.
Old people and children could play together immediately.

Playable even in the dark, the only component that is sensitive to water is a card. It was a good game to play outdoors.
