Now on Kickstarter is Bites, a reimagining of Big Points with Ants on a Picnic theme and variable gameplay. Bites is a highly interactive set collection game with commodity speculation that plays in 20 minutes. In Bites, players move ants along a trail of food picking up food as they travel towards the ant hill. Players can move ANY ant, but they can only move an ant to the next matching color food. Players can then collect either food item in front or behind the ant they moved. Players take turns moving ants and collecting food until all the ants have reached the ant hill. The order of arrival to the ant hill will determine the value of each food item. The first ant to arrive will score players the most points for food in the same color as the ant, while the last ant to arrive will score the players nothing for food of the ant’s color. Scoring for chocolate and wine change every game based on the starting rules card selected for them. Two other cards, a special rules card and the ant hill card, selected at the beginning of the game also changes how the game is played.
Bites plays 2-5 players, ages 12+, in about 20 minutes. Contents include a 5-level ant hill, 5 wooden ants, 50 regular food tokens, 10 special food tokens, 19 cards, 11 special tokens, and rulebook. Backers may add-on additional food tokens for a longer game. The Kickstarter Campaign runs through June 6 with an expected delivery in January 2020. Check out the Kickstarter Campaign to learn more.
