Under a nearby oak tree, embark upon the rigorous task of collecting and storing acorns before winter sets in. Your opponents are trying to take them all before you do. Whirlwinds, Ambushing, Quarreling, and Hoarding are all just part of the fun. Get the coveted Golden Acorn, but watch out for the dreaded Rotten Acorn. The more Acorns you get, the better chance you have of surviving Winter. The player to store the most Acorns before Winter arrives WINS! Gather your friends and NUTS with S’Quarrels!
Basic strategy plus action elements triggered by certain cards (Quarrel, which is like a mini game of War; Hoard, in which one player acquires all cards in the discard pile; Whirlwind, in which all players’ hands are shuffled together and redistributed; and Winter, which ends the round when played) make this much more than a regular rummy-type card game. Lots of fun.
Designed for 2 to 6 players, ages 7+. Playing time is 20 minutes or more. A great family game from Home Lantern Games.
