Writing reviews between all the Shooting
When a couple of guys reminded me what was so good
About playing games with cardboard and Wood,
Collecting Victory Points and those Miniatures with Flair
It’s not as easy as you think to rhyme with Bel Air.

The fox in the forest is a game of wonderful contradictions. It is light in footprint, consisting only of 33 cards and a handful of scoring tiles.
