A fun, fast paced & easy to learn game. Take the role of a bear waking from hibernation, slim & hungry. It's time to prepare for next year's big sleep. Alas, other bears in your ecosystem have become extremely competitive. Race to gather food while fending off foes along the way. To do this you will forage, frenzy, and even steal to stockpile your hoard. Better get going, winter will come fast.
Hibernation is a bear themed deck building card game. Your deck contains your means of finding food. It starts out forlorn and bare, but you strive to make it a perfect library of food collecting assets.
Then, eat your food in proper portions to gain layers of fat. The first one to achieve the 5 required layers of fat via Hibernation tokens can rest easy - victorious!
