Are you meek and mild mannered, an impulsive risk-taker, or a slow, calculating strategist? Find out in this easy to learn, award-winning, breakout game of lickety-split decisions, chance, and strategy. What kind of player will you be?

nut nut Squirrel! is a definite must to introduce even the smallest of players to critical thinking skills (inference, prediction, probability, analysis, risk, and decision making) from the get-go when first deciding on how many squirrels to add to the deck. Better your game by keeping count of the squirrels that have surfaced and how many are left, or force your opponents to flip a squirrel by holding back and patiently playing one card at a time. How about a little risk versus reward?

Take turns flipping over as many cards as you dare without flipping over a squirrel! If you flip over a squirrel, you lose all of your cards (seeds, nuts, and pinecones) for that turn only, but everyone else gets to ‘store’(keep) their seeds, nuts, and pinecones in their own pile for safe keeping until the end of the game. Be the lucky person with the most cards after the deck is depleted to win.
