FORT PHOTO GALLERY
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?

9.0 out of 10
Fort is one of our highest rated reviews of all time. We are saying that to check this one out is a must. It brings new things to the table that have just never been in a package like this. It is beautiful, it is accessible and you will have no problem playing it over and over again. The publisher, Leder Games, has a reputation for quality and this game lives up to that reputation.
Cats & Dogs Expansion
If you are a Fort player, buy this. It is so cheap and it will add so many great hours of gameplay to an already fantastic game. There is nothing revolutionary in the mechanics of the expansion, everything is a nice touch that makes sense. What is special and at such a high bar is how well this is incorporated based on theme. First off, for a game about kids trying to play, get toys and earn pizza, adding in Cats and Dogs is perfect. On top of that, the modes themselves make so much sense. Dogs are loyal but fussy and Cats are fickle.
FORT HOW TO PLAY
You’re 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. During your turn, you have limited actions that allow you to build up your infrastructure, gain resources and add new kids from the playground to your crew in an interesting deck building mechanic. Your cards not only let you take actions on your own turn but also let you follow the other players’ actions on their turns.

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.
