In Gopher It!, players are trying to collect exactly six apples or exactly six carrots or exactly six nuts and place them face up for safe storage. This is done by flipping over cards during a turn and deciding to keep what has been flipped or continuing to try to get more. But players should not get too greedy, because if they flip over the same type of food twice in row, then they lose all of the cards that they have previously collected on that turn. At any time, a player can choose to stop flipping over cards, in order to not risk losing what they have collected. However, players MUST stop after flipping over a maximum of 4 cards.
A scattered pile of Food Cards are put into a pile in the center of the table to form the Garden. On their turn, players pick any card out of the Garden and pick as long as they wish, up to 4 cards, unless they pick the same type of Food Card twice in a row.
