In this family-friendly tabletop game, teams of two players will work together to escort their three baby ducklings to a new home. As players navigate their families through a dangerous terrain, the game challenges them to make complex moral and strategic decisions. Will you sacrifice yourself to save your child?

I created the game with James Collins and Timothi Lim.
