    How do I start Flight of Pollen?

    I turn over an element card!

    Please add your examples of how you start Flight of Pollen.

    I lay the tiles down starting in column A. But do they have to be laid out in special order?

    Place them in random order.

    Each pollinator will fly around the board to find the ones of the same species.

    Help! Everything got shaken up and mixed about in the post.

    How do I get the levels back in order!?

    Lay the levels back in the box in this order:
    LEVEL D: BLUE
    LEVEL C: PINK
    LEVEL B: GREEEN
    LEVEL A: ORANGE

    Each level has: flower tiles; day pollinators (discs); night pollinators (discs); and an instruction lid which goes on top.

    On each lid, on the lower RHS, is a list of CONTENTS.

    We took everything out to have a good look at both sides of the tiles!

    Didn’t realise that levels have to be played in order! Oops!

    Here’s something I do to make teaching the game easier:
    For LEVEL A I stack the cards, to turn over in approx this order
    – zero wind, zero rain (zero sun) (no one moves)
    – one sun (zero wind, zero rain) (everyone moves)
    – one rain (remove one sun) (nobody moves)
    – one sun (one rain) (nobody moves)
    – one wind (one sun) (a few can move)
    – zero wind, zero rain (one sun) (everybody moves)
    – one sun + one sun ie two Suns (zero wind, zero rain) (some can move, and hoverfly movements can be shared along the day team
    – zero wind, zero rain (two Suns) (some can move as in previous round)

    New instructions have been sent to everyone who’ve bought the game of this site. But also, in new games going out, to make things clearer, I’m putting coloured sheets between each chapter. This is to show / make it literal, that each chapter must be complete, before lifting the lid the next.
