I’m a big fan of the 2-player trick-taking game The Fox in the Forest, published by Foxtrot Games and Renegade Games. It’s a really interesting to see a game like that work well with 2 players (though I am aware since that review that there are more out there).
But whoever heard of a 2-player cooperative trick-taking game?
Renegade Games and Foxtrot (as well as designer Charles Wright) have!
And now, so have you.
In January 2020, they are releasing The Fox in the Forest Duet (that’s a nice take-off on how so many 2-player versions of bigger games are called “Duel.”).
Not a lot has been released about this (the announcement just came today, actually), so let’s blurb the page instead!
That’s what real journalists do, right? (Editor: you keep believing that, sport)
“Work together to play tricks and move through the forest. Use the special abilities of the characters to exchange cards with each other, the let your teammate follow with any card, and more. Win as a team by collecting all the gems, but be careful to stay on the path and not get lost in the forest! “
The game is set to play in 30 minutes and takes (duh) 2 players.
Since I like the original so much, I definitely have to check this one out.
It’s available on the Renegade site for pre-order at $15.00.
Stay tuned to Renegade, Foxtrot, or hopefully even me for more information as it comes out.
Really looking forward to seeing how this works!
What do you think of this? Or even the original game?
Let me know in the comments.
