Playing our way

Kia Ora.  Here we are, on islands like no others. Tips of the (mostly) submerged continent of Zealandia, in the landscape of Aotearoa / New Zealand.

From here, come my environmental games.  Where we’re sometimes co-operating, sometimes competing, yet always in good heart.

I hope you’ll enjoy being gameful in our rich natural world too.  Being kakariki / green, and playing our way!

Nga mihi nui. JiL Hemming.  Game Designer

Flight of Pollen board game box

Flight of Pollen 

A multi-player, multi-level collaborative board game, Flight of Pollen is a vessel for collaborative engagement in the pollination processes of the bush of Aotearoa / New Zealand.

Cloak of Protection

Cloak of Protection

To save our birds, you need to trade, draw & play to create a feather cloak of 15 cards, in one bird realm: forest, settlement, sea, or extinct.

But BEWARE! Each card sports some predators – will they threaten your realm?
