In one of the early winter mornings, when I was walking to school, I saw squirrels jumping here and there on the grass, busy burying or digging food. "They must be preparing for the upcoming cold weather." I told myself. I couldn't help but started thinking myself as a squirrel trying to manage my life and get through this winter. Good memory is essential to squirrels. They have to remember very precisely where did they bury the food. How can they do that?
I kept imagining myself playing as a squirrel in a board game, walking around on a given landscape. That's how I got the inspiration to design the Nutty Adventure.
The first three rounds are consider "Autumn Time". Players have to bury all their nuts during Autumn. It is extremely important to remember where the nuts were buried.
Started from the fourth round. the Autumn Landscape will be removed. Winter comes and here is the snowy white world. Your memory will be challenged since every single square looks exactly the same now
Punishments for Bad Memories
If players cannot find any nut during their turn, they will be so starving that digging food from the trash bin becomes the only choice. Some of the trash might cause the reduction of the player's life.
