Quick Summary
spacerRobin and Mouse are sick and need Doctor Hedgehog to deliver apples and pears to them. Players compete to gain the most fruit. Each player has to decide on their level of risk. Will they give their fruit to Doctor Hedgehog or keep it for themselves? If players think only of themselves and not the common good, the hedgehog may not be able to fulfill his task and then all players lose.
spacerThe players throw the die. Fruit that appears is stuck into the hedgehog's bristles. If there is already two fruit of that kind, players can decide to keep it for themselves. When the door mouse or robin appears on the die, the hedgehog is moved to the place of that sick animal and food is dropped off.
spacerOlder children are likely to find the mechanics of the game rather dull. But adults can be caught up in the spirit of the game and the enthusiasm of their children.
