The White’s Tale board game makes players “become” a white-tailed deer and thrive by taking advantage of their environment and avoiding perils unique to nature’s four seasons. The game is fun for kids and benefits retailers, too.

“The white-tailed deer’s keen senses, complicated communication system, and commuter-like daily living habits make it essential that hunters understand the deer’s world,” said Emily Beach, the Archery Trade Association’s manager of education and curriculum development. “In the game, players are white-tailed deer, trying to survive and raise fawns. It sounds tough, but The White’s Tale makes learning child’s play.”

The game was created as part of the ATA’s “Explore Bowhunting” program, which teaches kids of all ages the basic skills of hunting with a bow and arrow. Students in “Explore Bowhunting” play The White’s Tale to learn how animals follow patterns when traveling, eating and mating. Students then use that knowledge to their advantage while hunting.

With this classic-style board game, players learn the natural history of white-tailed deer. Players must collect food and water through all four seasons, and breed successfully by collecting five fawns while avoiding predators, hunters, diseases and other unexpected dangers. It’s recommended for two to six players 8 and older.
Although The White’s Tale doesn’t teach players specific hunting tactics, it educates future hunters. The game is focus-group tested, and can add value to a shop’s product line in three ways.
