The game of Fox & Geese has been around for several centuries. Both Confederate and Union soldiers suffered from boredom. Reading, letter writing, and games helped pass the time.

In the game of Fox & Geese, the single predator, the Fox, attempts to remove all the other animals, the Geese. While the Geese attempt to surround the Fox and prevent it from moving. If the player controlling the Geese prevents the Fox from moving, he wins. If the player controlling the Fox eliminates enough Geese so that the Fox cannot be surrounded, he wins.

There are 2 versions of Fox & Geese - a 13 Geese version and a 15 Geese version. Each has rule variations. This board has 15 Geese enabling playing of the 13 or 15 Geese version. The game board measures approximately 10" x 5".
