THE FOREST IS UNDER ATTACK, AND ONLY YOU CAN SAVE IT!
The evil LUMBERCO wants to cut down protected forests! These lumberjacks will STOMP, DYNAMITE, and SNEAK through a forest to make room for their big, bad bulldozers and tree-chopping chainsaws! Only the forest animals and their friends can stop them now!
As the forest animals, players setup BEARICADES and recruit PREDATORS (like The Cougar, The Bat, or The Wolf Pack), to defend against the incoming hordes of lumberjacks. Can your forest survive the longest and avoid being cut down?!
It’s SURVIVAL OF THE FOREST – use guile, strategy, and the powers of 16 unique forest creatures to save your forest. An environmentally aware card game for 2 to 4 players.
Designed by Todd Walsh.
- 16 Unique Animals - Double Sided

COMPLETE RULES AND PLAY THROUGH VIDEO by JR Honeycutt - of the DFW Nerd Nighters.
In BEARICADES, each player represents a FOREST that is home to four forest animals. Each player works to scare off GREEDY LUMBERJACKS by using the powers of their animals and enlisting the help of the forest’s predators; including Grizzly, Black, Brown, and Polar BEARICADES.

BEARICADES is played in two phases: the NIGHT and the DAY.
During the NIGHT phase, each FOREST will recruit PREDATORS to help them against the lumberjacks. The PREDATOR DECK is an exhaustible resource - when the PREDATORS run out, they are gone for good.
During the DAY phase, LUMBERJACKS enter the FORESTS and each FOREST must defend against them. The LUMBERJACKS arrive by flipping the first card from the LUMBERJACK deck and then adding additional LUMBERJACKS equal to the number on the first LUMBERJACK. The LUMBERJACKS represent an unlimited threat - if the LUMBERJACK deck runs out, you shuffle up the discard and form a new deck.
In addition to their PREDATOR CARDS, each FOREST has FOUR UNIQUE ANIMALS that can help scare away the LUMBERJACKS from their FORESTS.Your ANIMALS represent strategies you can use, as well as acting as the primary trackers for "scoring" in the game.
That may mean moving LUMBERJACKS to the FORESTS of other players, stopping them, or discarding them. The players whose FOREST is the last to have any remaining animal defenders is the winner.
NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS GAME! There are no terms of violence or animal cruelty within the game. Animals and Lumberjacks "RUN AWAY" - they never get hurt.

9th Level Games is the small but growing game design and publishing house known for its unique blend of humor and playability. 9th Level Games' focus is on bringing great looking, great playing, and great fun to the table. Our most well-known games include the Kobolds Ate My Baby! RPG line, Schrödinger’s Cats card game, Knuckle Sammich card game, and Cthulhu for President RPG! In 2017, 9th Level Games is looking to produce a number of new indie games.
This is the 4th Kickstarter from 9th Level Games. 9th Level Games is:
- The Wizard, Chris O'Neill (producer, designer, artist)
- The Scout, Heather O'Neill (designer, marketing, logistics)
- The Hunter, Heather Wilson (designer, editor, communications)
- The Ranger, Daniel Hansen-Landis (designer, operations, finance)
KOBOLDS ATE MY BABY!, which first debuted in 1999, is a beer-and-pretzels role-playing game of random hi-jinks as players don the mantle of the most inept of all creatures, the lowly Kobold, in an effort to feed an insatiable king, appease an angry god, and avoid the ire of evil arch wizards while trying to avoid the random horrible death that could be waiting behind any corner. KAMB has become a fan favorite RPG, and is thought by many to be one of the best humor games ever.
Schrödinger’s Cats is a pseudo-scientific card game of strategic uncertainty. A fast, fun game of bluffing, deduction, and cute cat pictures! In Schrödinger’s Cats players run experiments, form hypotheses, and try to one-up each other’s research. Players take on the role of a Cat Physicist such as Albert Felinestein, Sally Prride, or Neil deGrasse Tabby!
BEARICADES is the first published game by, Philadelphia area game designer and martial artist TODD WALSH. 9th Level Games saw the fore-runner of what would become BEARICADES at GAME MAKER'S GUILD meetings in Philly. 9th Level was excited to work with Todd to bring his vision to life. Todd is super excited to get a chance to play Bearicades with you!
