It's a race against the clock as the Ice Age approaches. You need strength and food to survive and lots of it. The mammoth offers your tribes food beyond your wildest dreams, but they are very powerful beasts.
In Tusk!, you and your fellow players need to team up to hunt successfully — but there can be only one master of the hunt, and to ensure that's you and your tribe, you need to manipulate alliances, horde supplies, and make use of the land's many resources to become the most powerful tribe. The game is over when snow covers the entire playing area, and the tribe with the most food wins!
