How did I create the game?

A few years ago, Djeco ordered several "Ethnic" games from me and among the 4 or 5 projects proposed, one of them dealt with deforestation in the Amazon. An Indian was hiding behind the trees, but there were fewer and fewer trees. It was a topical issue, but a bit sad!

And then, one morning, watching a ladybug slowly walk over rose petals, I suddenly had the idea to make a version of the game where we should find a mischievous ladybug hiding behind flower petals.

So I made a prototype called LADYBUG (Ladybug), with 15 flower tiles, one of which had a ladybug on the back. It was a little memory bluff game for the little ones and it worked really quickly.

Haba was not mistaken in making a superb game, RAOUL LE RAT D’EGOÛTS, illustrated by Mathias Menzel.

The game having been discontinued a few years later, it has just been beautifully brought up to date by BLUE ORANGE with the STIVO brushes. The little sewer rat has become a mischievous little wolf hiding in the middle of a flock of sheep.
