Do you know the story of Rooster and Owl?

The proud and boastful Rooster and the quiet and wise Owl are arguing over the hours of a cycle, causing the day and night to occur at all hours! To get them to stop, it's been decided that each would have more hours for their day or night depending on the time of year. But who should get the extra hours first?

Play as Rooster or Owl and accept requests for help from other birds. Take turns pledging your time in the form of dice, then roll to see how well you do while weaving a story of your adventures and antics. But be careful, because if you don't save enough time to help the Sun or Moon, you might get into trouble.

  • Instructions in full watercolor
  • Field Guide in full watercolor that doubles as the Requests Guide
  • Annotated Field Guide in full watercolor with commentary and facts about each bird from Rooster and Owl and can also double as Requests Guide
