Engineering Ants is a cooperative game for 2–4 players. The players take turns rolling a die to move the shared engineering ant token around the board in search of blocked ants. Upon finding a blocked ant, the players work together to build something that will help the blocked ant get around the obstacle. The games includes 12 tubes (4 tall, 8 short), 8 clips, 8 connectors, 8 caps, and an assortments of cardboard pieces giving you wings, propellers, ladders, etc. If the players free all three blocked ants before the anteater token (which moves on certain die rolls and based on the engineering ant landing on certain spots on the board) arrives at the central anthill, then the players win.
