Gopher It!

Gopher It!

Fall 2004 Games
Ages: 5 & Up
Price: $7.95
Gopher It!, a card game for 2-4 players, teaches elementary addition and subtraction. The game consists of 11 gopher trophy cards and 39 cards depicting three types of gopher food. Each card has anywhere from one to three carrots, apples, or acorns on them. The object of the game is to gather exactly six of any food item (to survive the winter) and win a gopher trophy. The player who collects three gopher trophies is the winner.

Food is gathered by turning over one or more (up to four) cards in the garden (face-down cards scattered on the table). A player keeps all cards as long as no two cards with the same food item are turned over consecutively (so don't get too greedy). The collected cards are placed in their gopher hole until six items are accumulated.
