Hunker down in a backyard tent or under a fort of blankets because when the lights go out, the fun begins! Shadowlings – scattered across the forest, hiding in the shadows – must all work together to meet under the same tree to defeat the light. One player is the lantern and tries to freeze the “Shadowlings” or other players by casting the light among a forest of trees to reveal their whereabouts. As the light moves, so do the shadows – allowing the Shadowlings to hide among the trees. If the light freezes all the Shadowlings, it wins. If all the Shadowlings make it to the same tree, they win.
