As the days begin to chill, the last of the fruit begins to ripen. Red Fox scavenges the Forest Floor for these last morsels. His ears twitch as he hears the gleeful caw of Crow. Red Fox sees Crow helping herself to a patch of red mulberries high in a tree. Before Red Fox can approach further, Crow takes to the skies. Many of the mulberries that have fallen are already eaten. But perhaps Red Fox can follow Crow and swipe a few of the ripe ones she has…
Find the fruit that Crow dropped by first discarding all leaves cards from the Forest Floor and then revealing both Fruit & Seeds cards before the sun sets (before sun/moon token completes once cycle around the Forest Floor).
Discard all leaves cards and capture two Fruit & Seeds cards all while Crow is making life difficult for you by swapping cards on the Forest Floor (according to the chart below). To discard a leaves card, simply end your movement atop the card, then place it outside the game. Do not flip over the card underneath the card. You must land on it on a future turn to reveal it. You must clear all four leaves cards before beginning your search for the two Fruit & Seeds cards. When you reveal a Fruit & Seeds card, simply put it off to the side (as you would a caught rabbit) and replace it with one card from the deck facedown. You win once you have collected both Fruit & Seeds cards. But, watch out, each turn Crow is swapping cards on the Forest Floor to make her Fruit & Seeds difficult to find! Crow CAN swap cards underneath leaves cards; however, leaves cards remain in their same position on the Forest Floor.
This game, Fruit & Seeds cards have: (Lose your next turn). Crow MAY swap a Fruit & Seeds card right out from under you during the turn you lose, so watch out and plan accordingly.
