Interesting, portable trick taking game. I liked the balance of trying and forcing the opponent to take enough tricks and tip too far over the line, and would love to play this more.

The Fox in the Forest is a two player trick-taking game, and this premise alone warrants praise. Just like any other trick-taking game players have a trump suit to abide by, and must follow suit, which makes the game incredibly intuitive and easy to teach. Mix in a few card powers, and a non-linear scoring mechanism, and out comes an incredible game for non-gamers. Anyone who enjoys the classic card games of old (Euchre, Hearts, etc) will immediately be at home with The Fox in the Forest and enjoy its unique take. Play a Swan to steal the lead, or the Monarch to neutralize your opponent's best cards, or play the Fox to pivot the trump suit and score more tricks. There is a shoot-the-moon element as well, which creates great culminations at the end of each hand. Its a bit too simple for me to play often, but it nails its unique premise and I will recommend this to just about everyone.
