Many Russian tales speak of the character of Baba Yaga, the ogress witch
who lives in a house with chicken legs. Fortunately for them, children
always find unexpected allies and manage to escape her. Will you prove
In Baba Yaga, you need to escape the claws of the hideous Baba Yaga. To
do so, however, you need to collect the ingredients for your three spell
cards, and to do that you need to search the forest while Baba Yaga
searches for you.
To set up the game, place nine Baba Yaga tiles in a cross to form a
flight path, then place the 16 ingredient tokens face down, with four
tokens in each section of the cross. Each player starts the game with
three spell cards, which must remain hidden. On a turn, the active
player reveals her top spell card, which shows four ingredients, then
starts searching for these ingredients in the forest, turning over tiles
one by one with a single hand and hiding those she doesn't need. While
she does this, the other players take turns moving the Baba Yaga
figurine one step at a time along one branch of the flight path, then
back. If Baba Yaga completes a circuit before the player finds the
ingredients, she must place her spell card on the bottom of her stack;
if she finds the ingredients, however, she gets to cast the spell on the
card, lengthening or shortening the flight path, swapping the location
of ingredients, requiring fewer ingredients next time, forcing an
opponent to play in a distorted position, and so on. The first player to
complete her three spells wins!
Baba Yaga includes variants for younger players, more experienced
players, and those who want the chicken-legged house to be constantly on
the move. In the two-player game, the single opponent does all the
moving of Baba Yaga, but must swap hands with each move, keeping the
inactive hand on her head.
