Fox in the Forest Australia

Fox in the Forest Review

A trick taking game for 2 players, really? Yup – in another strong undertaking from Renegade and Foxtrot games, they have hit it out of the park with this game.  The game play is super simple,  one player places a card and the second player tries to beat that…or not. The trick of Fox in […]
