FENCE! is a board game for 2-8 players.
Each player is a crooked fence, trying to:
- control territory ,
- accumulate Hot Goods , and
- avoid getting busted by the Cops .
You can download a 2-page PDF (300 dpi, US letter), print it to card stock (or glue to paperboard), and cut it out. You'll also need:
- Two differently-colored 6-sided dice (ideally, one red die and one blue die).
2 decks of playing cards per pair of players, one with a red back and one with a blue back; if you have 3 or 4 players, you'll need 2 red decks and 2 blue decks. For 5 or 6 players, use 3 red decks, and 3 blue decks. For 7 or 8 player, use 4 red decks and 4 blue decks.
Alternately, for each pair of players, you can print two pages of cards (US letter, double-sided) specific to FENCE!. If you do this, you might be interested in card-making suggestions from BoardGameGeek.com.
- A pawn for each player, distinct from all the others.
