As spring dawns the great thaw begins. Deep beneath the lush meadow
grasses the queen stirs in her nest and the colony comes to life.
Soldiers venture forth, battling centipedes while clashing with opposing
colonies for territory. Workers dig an ever-expanding network of
tunnels in their tireless search for food. The first larvae hatch and it
is clear this generation will be different: the young colonies rapidly
evolve into a multitude of new forms. The ants march out to claim the
meadow as their own.
In March of the Ants, you create the shared Meadow board by sending
your ants to explore it, revealing and strategically placing two dozen
unique tiles like Fern, Pebble, and Nest of Centipedes.
Populate new territory by breeding larvae and marching your ants onto
collection sites. Will you engage competing colonies in battle, seeking
to claim the land for yourself? Or will you establish peaceful,
symbiotic relationships and share the spoils? All of this must be done
while carefully managing the resources in your underground nest.
Forage for Event Cards like Strange Appetite, Cold Snap, and Fungal
Outbreak to impact the entire board – or just one unlucky opponent.
Mutate your colony with special Evolution Cards like the Trap Jaw
head, Weaver thorax, and Leaf Cutter abdomen. What weird and wondrous
path will your colony’s evolution take: advanced Workers, fearsome
Soldiers, or a fertile Queen?
Emerge triumphant by scoring Colony Points as your ants explore and
control the Meadow. Search for Colony Goals like Epic Stores, Followers
of the Eyeless, and Extensive Tunnels to plan your route to victory.
