Inspired by his experience of once rescuing a tree squirrel, Randy Hecht, an aerospace engineer from Southern California invented this educational board game, and co-founded the company Moxy Roxy, Inc. to pay homage to his furry friend named “Roxy.” Roxy has built her nests around Randy’s backyard, given birth to several litters of babies, and pays him regular visits.
Take a live journey through the eyes of a tree squirrel. We have all seen these cute creatures in the wild and our backyards, yet few know much about them. Finally, for the first time a board game has been created to simulate the life of a typical tree squirrel from nest born, to adulthood, and ultimately parenthood.
Full of humanizing and amusing nuances, both children and adults will enjoy many hours of fun and entertainment. With cleverly designed game rules, it also helps kids develop important social, math and negotiation skills that will benefit both their personal and professional lives for years to come.
The general objective of the game is to gather a certain number of food pieces (i.e. acorns, strawberries and pumpkins), as well as obtain five tail rings signifying squirrel life milestone achievements. The first squirrel/player to accomplish this wins.
