A chaotic lunch for 3-6 hungry snakes of 8 years and over. Thisss apple is mine! No, pleassssse, I ssssee it firssst... Life is getting harder for the snakes of the forest. When the apples fall from the trees all the snakes try to take them for lunch. They run furiously to get the apples and to avoid the mushrooms... and the trees. They try to not pass one over another, but it is not so easy with their empty tummies!
Object of the game:
The players maneuver their snakes playing the movement cards. They have to try to reach the apples and to avoid the mushrooms to get the points. They have also to reach the border of the map to score so many as the length of their bodies. There is score limit (different for a 3, 4, 5 or 6 player game) and when a player reaches this limit he is the winner.
Game components: 6 wooden heads, one for each snake (colors: green, black, pink, purple, yellow and blue), to show where the snakes are going. 48 wooden bodies, 8 for each snake (colors: green, black, pink, purple, yellow and blue), to show where the snakes are now. 10 tree counters to show where the apple trees are and where the apples are falling. 18 apple counters showing the victory points they worth on the back. 9 mushroom counters showing the negative points they worth on the back. 6 wooden counters, one for each snake, to keep track of the points eaten. 6 snake boards, one for each snake, to keep track of cards played and body lengths. 42 movement cards, a set of 7 cards for each snake (2 forward, 2 left, 2 right and 1 stop). 58 event cards, 18 apples, 9 mushrooms, 19 lengthening, 4 shortening, 4 sleep and 4 rotten. 1 map board showing the forest, with a 8x8 grid of square cases on the front (for a 5/6 players game) and a 6x6 grid on the back (for a 3/4 players game). 1 score board to keep track of the scores, with the 5/6 player version on the front and the 3/4 player version on the back. 1 reserve board to keep apples, mushrooms and cards.

|I like games that include animals. SnakeLake is tons of fun. Your snake slithers around the woods looking for apples. You have to be faster than the other opponets, but sometimes that causes you to crash into a tree or accidently eat a toadstool.
