Cher Ami is a card game for 1 to 3 players, where you’ll guide a homing pigeon in her flight through the sky and the battlefield so she can deliver an important message. 

On October 4, 1918, the men of the Lost Battallion of the 77th Division of the U.S. Army were trapped behind enemy lines in the middle of the Battle of the Argonne. They were also starting to receive friendly fire from allied troops and artillery, as they didn’t know their position. They tried to send messages by pigeon asking for help, but the first two were shot down by the Germans.

They had  only one pigeon left: Cher Ami.

She was sent with the message:

“We are along the road parallel to 276.4. Our own artillery is dropping a barrage directly on us. For Heaven’s sake stop it.”
