Once upon a time there was a farm that grew Carob Beans
Carob Beans are grown as a cocoa substitute and for their vitamin value. Like any farm, this farm had rodents living on it. To be honest, it was infested with rats. Lots and lots of rats. For generations these rats had been eating the Carob Beans.
One day one of the rats noticed the pleasing fragrance and followed it all the way back the farm house. There he found a pie sitting at the window’s edge. He tried and tried as hard as he could but being just a single rat he could not move that pie off the window sill.
Not wanting to easily give up he quickly ran off to get some of his fellow rats with the promise of a piece of the pie if they would help him lift it off the window sill and carry it away. They were successful! …Very, very successful! Over time they learned that different pies weighed different amounts and that they needed more rats to take the heavier pies. The rats also started forming groups or “crews” to try and steal the pies. They were becoming competitive, even among themselves, in their attempts to steal these delicious treats
- In Pie Rats of the Carob Bean Farm each player plays the role of a Rat Captain who tries to build a crew of rats that, with a combined strength, is strong enough to loot the pies from the farmer’s wife.
- Build up your charisma and lure unloyal crew members to your crew to build up your total strength. Be careful or you may end up losing some of your own crew.
- Be the Rat Captain with the most pie points at the end of the game and declare yourself the winner!
