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.
Winter has arrived. When Red Fox breathes, his breath comes out as a fog. The clouds are grey and heavy. The first snowflakes of the winter begin to fall over the forest. As the snow builds, coming down in thick, wet flakes, it becomes difficult to hunt. Though visibility is high in the fresh, white, pristine landscape, most of the denizens of the Forest Floor are hidden away. Perhaps, instead of hunting like normal, Red Fox can try seeing if any food is hidden beneath the snow.
Find both Fruits & Seeds cards and bring back to your Den before Mountain Lion makes one cycle around the Forest Floor, as per the diagram below. You still lose if Mountain Lion catches you.
With all of the white snow and lack of leaves on trees, it is much easier to see what awaits you on the Forest Floor. At the beginning of the game, peek at one non-snow-covered card.
Place the Den token on your start card. Find both Fruits & Seeds, then bring them both back to your den. Once you reveal a Fruits & Seeds card, immediately place it in front of you and replace it on the Forest Floor with the top card of the deck facedown. You win as soon as you land on your den with both Fruits & Seeds cards in front of you.
As an additional challenge, 4 cards begin snow-covered. Place the 4 snow symbol cards on top of the cards pictured in the diagram. You may need to dig through the snow to find Fruits & Seeds.
Snow symbol: When Red Fox lands on a card with this symbol, Red Fox ends movement immediately. Then, remove this card from the Forest Floor. Snow has do not swap symbol. However, the card underneath a Snow card may still be swapped as normal.
NOTE: Red Fox is much too weak from hunger to try and catch any rabbits. Baby Eastern Cottontail Rabbits have leap 2 instead of rabbit encounter this game.
NOTE: For this game only, Raccoon’s steal ability states: Swap one of your captured Fruits & Seeds with this card. This Fruits & Seeds card remains faceup on the Forest Floor. Discard Raccoon. If you have not captured any Fruits & Seeds this game, then this card has no effect. Red Fox may attempt to capture this Fruits & Seeds again on another turn.
Forest Floor Winter Deck. Remove all (non-winter) cards.
Both Fruits & Seeds and 4 winter cards to be placed atop cards according to the diagram below.
18 random cards + 2 Fruits & Seeds cards + 4 Winter cards
NOTE: Place winter cards in the exact positions as in diagram below.
