Collect more chickens in your yard than your opponents in Chickens!




Look, it was a weird time.

Call it the remnants of a pandemic project. Call it a midlife crisis. Whatever you call it, a lot of people suddenly got lots of chickens. And of course you joined in!

But you’re not here to have a couple of chickens. Anyone can have some chickens. You’re here to have the most chickens. You’ve got 3 rounds to gather all the chickens you can.

Chickens! is a chicken-collecting card game for 2–5 players.

How to Play

To win, collect the most chickens over 3 rounds.

Collect chickens by adding them to your yard. Each player’s yard starts off as an empty row on the table in front of them. In 2–3 player games, yards have 5 available spaces. In 4–5 player games, they have 4 spaces.

The Cards

There are 8 types of cards in the game.

Chicken cards add 1-6 chickens to a yard. Dog Poops take up space in a yard. Hoses remove Dog Poop from a yard. Foxes eat smaller Chicken cards. Inspectors take bigger Chicken cards. Softballs stop Foxes and Inspectors. Yoinks steal Chickens to your yard. The Tornado fully clears out a yard.

Plays Over Quick Turns

Players take turns drawing a card into their hand, then either playing or discarding a card from their hand. You can play cards to your yard, or to someone else’s.

You’ll generally play Chicken and Hose cards to your own yard. Dog Poops, Foxes, Inspectors, and the Tornado! get used on others’ yards.

Use Yoink! cards on others to move 1 of their Chicken cards to your yard. Keep Softballs in your hand, just in case, to throw at Foxes & Inspectors trying to steal your Chickens.

Ending a Round

The round ends once someone’s yard is full of just Chicken cards. (Note that the player who ends the round may not have the most chickens!) You’ll then count your chickens to get your score for the round.

Winning the Game

After 3 rounds of chicken collecting, the player with the most total chickens across all 3 rounds wins!

The “Tick Tock” Variant

Wanna tighten the game a little? Instead of playing until someone’s yard is full of chickens, the round can also end when the main deck runs out. This ticking time-bomb means you’ve gotta make do with what you get, and strategically save the right cards for your last turns.

It’s Fun, Quick & Portable

This game comes in a mint tin, which makes it easy to take with you. You’ll be chicken-pickin’ all over the place!
