Deep in the dark forest, cute critters gather ‘round, waiting for you to give them what they crave. Some of these devious creatures will try to fool you. Some will butt heads and scurry back into the trees. Others will stay no matter what. Gather your fireflies and see if you can lure the best ones to your side.
Smile, available now from Z-Man Games, invites three to five players to enter the woods and hunt for the cute critters that live there. Tempted by the juicy fireflies that you carry, the critters just might come and join you…if you offer them more fireflies than your friends, that is!
Lurking in Smile’s deck of fifty cards are critters ranging in value from -5 to 6 and it’s up to you to gather the group worth the most points. During each of the game’s ten rounds, you have the chance to attract valuable critters to your side by bidding your fireflies. Placing fireflies on the critter with the lowest value will keep you in the running for the more valuable critters, but these tasty bugs go quickly if you’re not careful. You can always back out of a round and collect a card with at least one firefly on it. The fireflies you collect this way are yours to spend in later rounds, but the cards you take this way could deduct points from your score. Play carefully to make sure you have enough fireflies when you really need them!
