A week ago, friends gathered in our cosy fire-lit living room to trial the new board game from Jil Hemming. With anticipation for the unfolding journey ahead we aquainted ourselves with the pollinator discs we had been assigned and set out to pollinate our first flowers.
At each level of complexity we learned the fascinating particulars of our pollinators – birds, insects and gecko and the peculiarities of each native plant. For instance, who knew that our famous honey-producing manuka had so few pollinators compared to that aloof giant of the forest, rata.
We worked in teams as well as co-operatively to do the work of the wind, insects, birds and gecko. What a fantastic evening, and we look forward to playing again and sharing the game with more of our friends.
Thought I’d share this lovely comment I received in October. Perfect place to play the game!!
Just thought you might like to know how much our family love your card game. It was a real highlight taking it in our pack on our tramp on the weekend. We stayed overnight at a tramping hut with another family and introduced them to the game. With a 7,8,10 and 11 year old we played until after 10pm in candlelight. Only stopping to hear the morepork and to check out possums with torchlight. Was a great location to play the game in!
