Board game review & gameplay of: Angry raccoons

  • 7/10
  • 10+
  • 2-5 players
  • 25-80 minutes


๐Ÿฆ In this game players assemble a team of raccoons in the first phase and let them fight each other in phase two: an ultimate battle!

๐Ÿฆ phase 1: tame raccoons

In this phase players get to perform one of 3 actions

  1. Tame a raccoon from the raccoon deck

  2. Draw 2 boozecards to hand

  3. Let the dice decide, giving you one or a combination of the above

๐Ÿฆ When taming a raccoon, the active player tries to beat the raccoon in three rounds by throwing the dice with one of the other players. Booze cards can be used to manipulate the outcome of the dice or have some other trick to perform. The raccoon wins ties. When a raccoon is tamed it comes to join your team, if not, it is discarded.

๐Ÿฆ In the second phase of the game, when all raccoons are divided (or discarded), players will battle with their team raccoons, to find out who is the biggest Billy of them all! ๐Ÿ™Œ

๐Ÿฆ A battle is also fought in 3 rounds, the active player selects a raccoon to fight with and an opponents raccoon and the battle begins! Each raccoon has a special ability in this round. The raccoon that wins returns to their team, the losing raccoon gets discarded. Play continues until there is only one player with raccoons left!


Overall: this is a light game with simple rules, which artwork is appealing. The gameplay is fun, especially with larger groups. The game is not entirely without itโ€™s flaws, but will definitely satisfy many players! ๐Ÿ™Œ

๐Ÿ‘ the artwork is fun!

๐Ÿ‘ I like that the game consists of two phases, reminds me a bit of the game Claim, but than in a whole different implementation with the dice mechanics and booze cards

๐Ÿ‘ the luck works well in this game and its chaotic touch definitely has its charm!

๐Ÿ‘โž–the game isnโ€™t that much fun at lower player counts, itโ€™s more interesting to have more players to battle!

โž–some of the games we played tend to be on the long side

โž– not all dice are clearly to be read. Besides this, I thought it was confusing that the dice consist of different colors, since the colors donโ€™t have a special meaning


A copy of this game was provided to me by Startboard Games for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
