In BRIDGE TROLL, you and your friends are hideous trolls who each
guard a troll bridge. Each turn, you throw boulders to bid for travelers,
who vary in number depending on the weather for that day.
Travelers include fat merchants, pilgrims, poor monks (who make
good eating), and if you are lucky, royal personages. As travelers
come to your bridge, you use them to collect tolls. But watch out!
Knights, bandits, dragons, and vicious Billy Goats Gruff prowl the
countryside. You'll have to use some of your boulders to chase them
away (which means you’ll have fewer left to use on your bridge!).
Although you need to collect tolls from travelers so you can buy
building supplies, working on your bridge makes you hungry, so you
will have to eat some of your travelers instead. It is important
to balance tolls with food in order to make your bridge very appealing
to travelers. If you eat too many travelers or just collect money,
you won't be able to fix up your bridge. The player who uses toll-money,
food, and boulders to build the most impressive troll bridge operation
wins the game.
