The game is for 2-5 adventurous flightless birds. It plays quickly and can be learned
in minutes. Players have their own deck of ostrich cards from which they draw a hand
of four – these are used to move your ostrich along coloured ostrich footprints.
You must end your turn on a footprint which matches the colour of the card you played.
In addition, bonuses can be received at water holes. These include “Whacky Wings,”
“Boinnnggg” and “Neckstretch.” Some are for one-time use while others allow a benefit
