Butterfly is very simple tile set collection game by Rio Grande. You take the hedgehog from tile to tile scoring points for the tiles you collect.


The player to the left of the starting player places the hedgehog. After the hedgehog has been placed players take turns moving the hedgehog in a straight line, before the move the hedgehog maybe turned to the left or the right. The player then collects the tile where they land. If the hedgehog moves over an exposed butterfly net the player may draw a tile from the bag.

Lightning bugs score equal to the lowest dragonfly collected. Grasshoppers score only the last grasshopper collected, previous tiles are discarded.
