FORT OVERVIEW


From the Designer Grant Rodiek, Fort is a clever deck building game where you take on the role of a kid, and like many kids, you want to grow your circle of friends, collect pizza and toys, and build the coolest fort.

By doing this cool stuff, you’ll score victory points, and at the end of the game, the player with the most victory points wins! Your cards not only let you take actions on your own turn, but also let you follow the other players’ actions on their turns. Will you devote yourself to your own posse, or copy what the other kids are doing?

But be careful as your carefully constructed deck might start losing cards if you don’t actually use them. After all, if you don’t play with your friends, why should they hang out with you anymore?

FORT FAQ


Was Fort originally on Kickstarter?

For this particular game no. Leder CEO Patrick Leder says he takes projects game by game. On the subject, he says “I like the rush of KS, but the amount of work it now creates, I question the costs. There is a ton of customer support with this many direct consumers. That being said its fun to engage the community.”

What are the player colors in Fort?

The four player options are red, yellow, green and orange.

Who goes first in Fort?

There is no set rule, use your randomizer of choice.

Are there any advanced rule configurations in Fort?

Yes, once you have mastered the main game there is a change you can make to be more in control of your starting deck. Instead of just drawing your 8 cards from the park deck, you instead have a draft with all other players. You take one card at a time and pass your stack to the left until you have a total of 8.

In Fort, If there is a blank pizza/toy space and I get multiple, can I mix and match?

No, whichever of the two you choose you must take all of that type.

Is following unlimited in Fort?

Yes, you can always play of the leader’s cards as long as you have a card of the same suit to discard and you are able to take the benefit the action would provide.
