The fire destroyed part of the forest. Ash and blacked husks of trees are all that remain. Red Fox’s territory was spared the worst of the damage. But Mountain Lion’s territory was devastated. Moving to find new food, Mountain Lion sniffs the ashy air and catches a familiar scent. Mountain Lion knows Red Fox’s territory is still full of tasty morsels to feast upon. Best of all, Mountain Lion has always enjoyed the taste of carrion, deer, groundhogs, beaver, and . . . foxes!
Catch all three rabbits before Mountain Lion catches all of his prey.
Mountain Lion is hunting in your territory. For this game, Mountain Lion will move on top of the cards, just like Red Fox, and will hunt each of his prey in alphabetical order: first Beaver, then Carrion, then Groundhog, then White-Tailed Deer. Each turn, move Mountain Lion 2 cards closer to his next prey on the quickest 2-card path (not diagonal). If two paths are tied for quickest, you choose the path. Mountain Lion ignores all card abilities, so he may move onto and through any cards on the Forest Floor. He stops immediately when landing on his prey even if he has not yet moved his full 2 cards. Remove that card (because he has caught it!) from the game and replace it with a facedown card from the deck. You lose only if: 1) Mountain Lion moves onto or through the card you currently occupy or, 2) Mountain Lion captures his last prey (White-Tailed Deer) before you have successfully captured 3 rabbits.
Place the Fox Den token on your start card (in the bottom right-hand corner of the Forest Floor). Now you must catch three amphibians and return to your Fox Den before the sun rises.
Instead of their normal (Leap Ability), Bullfrogs now have this game.
NIGHTTIME: Since it is nighttime and hence it is dark, you cannot leave any card faceup this game; ignore all on all cards. Also, ignore all card abilities except for , , , and .
Also, like Fowler’s Toad from Scenario #3, Spotted Salamander possesses the:
Amphibian symbol: Same as but replace all instances of ‘rabbit’ with ‘Fowler’s Toad’ and all symbols with symbols. Also, this card does not remain faceup after it evades Red Fox.
Forest Floor deck – remove:
one White-Tailed Deer
Forest Floor deck
Mountain Lion (use the side with block symbol)
Required cards that begin on your Forest Floor
Crow and all three Baby Eastern Cottontail Rabbits.
Place Beaver, Carrion, Groundhog, and White-Tailed Deer faceup in the exact locations shown in the diagram below.
These become Mountain Lion’s prey and their symbols remain active the entire game.
Remove all cards with non-winter symbol on them. These animals are not active in the winter and will not be for the rest of the storyline scenarios.
DEVOUR was fully funded on KICKSTARTER in November 2022. Since then we have added new animals and are progressing on manufacturing. See the details on our Kickstarter page:
