Q: How does the hand limit work?
A: I know, the hand limit thing seems kind of complicated. It’s hard to explain in a tiny little playing card, so I’ll try and clarify. Basically, you must play or discard your hand to 3 cards before drawing 2 action cards and ending your turn. So a basic turn will look like this: Draw 2 Chickens, Play (discard to 3 cards, if necessary), and Draw 2 Actions.
Q: What are these “coops”?
A: Your coops are essentially 2 imaginary stacks of cards in front of you. This is where much of the action takes place.
Q: How many coops can I use at a time?
A: You may have 2 coops going simultaneously. To get rid of a coop-in-progress, you must either cash in a completed Chicken Run, or discard the entire coop to start over.
Q: Is trading allowed?
A: Absolutely! In fact, trading is one of the elements that really makes Chicken Run a lot of fun to play! Wheel, deal, make friends or enemies and have a good time!
Q: Can a guard dog block a guard dog?
A: We’ve gotten this question a lot, surprisingly. Our answer is simple: you decide. We love house rules, and we encourage you to make your own as well. There are good arguments for either side on this one, so put together your fact sheet and have a good ole fashioned debate.
Q: Can I guard dog someone else’s attack on someone else?
A: When we play, we don’t allow this, but if your game night group decides to allow it, that’s fine with us!
Q: How does the Snake Card work?
A: When you play a Snake Card, choose the player to attack. They must then allow you to choose a card at random from their hand. They will hold their cards facing them, so you can’t see what you’re stealing, unless they allow you to (not recommended).
