A simple game of strategy.
Mechanlou is a fun family card game devised by Djeco, featuring the characters of the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. It is a game of strategy, with the player who manages to collect all 6 story cards which tells the story, having avoiding the Mr Wolf card becoming the winner. To escape the wolf card you have to choose a 'forest' card and turn it over: if it is a 'hunter' card the wolf is killed and the card is kept and if it is a wolf the card it lost.
The game comes packaged in a sturdy box with a sliding cover.

Enjoyable, portable gameReviewed by Rsn on 22 Jun 2018
We love the Djeco games as a family (our favourite is Piou Piou), they are portable, don't take too much room in our small house and are beautifully illustrated and well thought out. Mechanlou doesn't disappoint. It arrived on time and was well packed. There is a bit of simple strategy, and there is much hilarity when we have to sing while seeing if we get wolf or a hunter (we sing "who's afraid of the big bad wolf" instead of the suggested song in the instructions). My 5 year old loves it. As an adult I enjoy playing this with my child. Will be taking it on long train rides (although you do need a bit of table room to play this).
