Hounded is a modern fox game from Atlas Games. Fox games are a category of board games for two players, where one player controls one, or sometimes two, fox pieces, and the other player has multiple pieces representing either prey, or hunters, of the fox. Variants of the game date back as far as the 14th century, with historic links going back even farther than that.
In Hounded, the first player controls a hunting party consisting of the Master of the Hounds, three Foxhounds, a Bulldog, and a Terrier. The second player controls the Fox. Each different piece has it’s own unique movement and special abilities. Similarly, 23 of the 49 hidden tiles that make up the 7×7 play space also have special bonuses on them when revealed.
