 Katrina and Rob tried this game out at ASTRA back in May 2017 and were quickly impressed. It’s face-paced, fun for the whole family and reminded them both of their scouting days. Rob reached Eagle Scout and Katrina earned her Silver Leader award and both loved camping, so this game caught their eye immediately. Even if you aren’t an outdoor lover, you will love this quick 30 minute game for 2-4 players, ages 6+!
