Help Mama Wombat rescue her baby Wombats before Duncan the Dingo does his damage! Smell your way to victory!
Did you know that wombats poop cubes? It's true!
Scientists theorize that, due to extremely poor vision but an excellent sense of smell, wombats use their poop cubes as "smell markers" to help them navigate their environment. Because their poop is cube-shaped it is less likely to roll away or be moved.
In this novel game by designer Matt Wolfe, you play a Mama wombat. The dastardly dingo has stormed your burrow and chased away 4 of your baby wombats! You will need to eat and digest food in order to produce poop cubes, with which you will build smell areas so you can navigate your environment, find your baby wombats, and bring them home. The player who best plans their smell areas and moves most efficiently will find their 4 babies, bring them home and prove victorious!
Don't be fooled by the wonderfully colorful and unique art by Polish Artist Mateusz Szulik, or the unusual theme from US Designer Matt Wolfe, Wombat Rescue is not a kids game. It is really a family game (for those ages 10+) or a light to medium gamer's game (for 1 to 4 players--expandable to 5) that takes about one hour to play!
