At breakneck speed, all players simultaneously distribute their animal cards over seven areas. Because different animals are always in demand in each landscape, lightning-fast re-thinking is required.
In more detail, each landscape of In Windes Eule (designed by Alexey Konnov, Alexey Paltsev, Anatoliy Shklyarov) has its own laws: In the harbor, only the first animal of each kind can come on board. In the clearing, the presence of doubled animals is frowned upon. And in the villages, rats spread a plague that only cats can help against. Everywhere bats, hawks, and flying kites flutter in and over the castle — always ahead of the wind.
