During the game, players use their 1 hunter (meeple) to lay traps and try to catch the one roaming Mammoth. A hexagonal board is assembled of randomly placed hex tiles each showing grass, snow or rocks. Players take turns taking one action which can be to either:
- Move - Play a card from their hand of 3 (valued 1 – 3) and move their hunter (a) the full number of spaces, (b) in a straight line, and (c) never on to/through rocks (as these are always out of bounds to hunters and mammoths).
- Lay trap - Place on their hunter’s current tile but only if it’s a grass tile (and no other hunters or traps are there)
- Remove opponent’s trap - If no other hunters are there.
- Pass - Discard a card and draw a new one.
