Pollination Illumination

Aubane concentrates on the tiles for Flight of Pollen

Yesterday, Sunday 3 September, was the launch of Bee Aware Month, at the Treehouse Visitor Centre, Wellington Botannic Gardens.

We had some great game sessions playing Flight of Pollen.

Aubane (pictured) said “Interesting. Because you’ve got to work your brain, but have fun at the same time!”

The environmental board game Flight of Pollen launched at the Mahara Gallery on Saturday 2 September.

Designer JiL Hemming (Otaki), illustrator Cushla McGaughey (Waikanae), and graphic designer Don Little (ex-Waikanae), were joined by players from Kapanui School to show-case the new game.

“It takes a village to make a game,” said JiL as she thanked Janet Bayly (director Mahara Gallery), plus pledgers, supporters, game-testers, and many others for their generosity and expertise.

Money toward printing costs was raised via the PledgeMe campaign plus with a generous grant from the Philipp Family Foundation.

The how-to-play videos, made by Kapanui School students, were also launched.
