Did you know that wombats poop cubes? It is 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.
You play as the mama wombat of your tribe. 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 prove victorious!
The object of Wombat Rescue is to be the first player to find all 4 of your baby wombats and bring them home.
Do not be fooled by the wonderfully colorful and unique art by Polish Artist Mateusz Sxulik, or the unusual theme from US Designer Matt Wolfe. Wombat Rescue is not a kids game. It is really a family game for ages 10 and up or a light to medium gamers game for 1 to 4 players that takes about one hour to play!
