Description

THE GAME:
2-6 players
Ages 10 – adult
Length of play (all chapters): 1-2 hours
Designer. JiL Hemming
Illustrator/Researcher. Cushla McGaughey
Graphic Designer. Don Little / Kurt Shanly
BOXED SET CONTAINS:
Forest ground-cloth
4 chapters (A,B,C,D) with element cards, playing discs, and flower tiles
9 Storm cards
Pollen counters, ripening squares, markers (all made from recycled materials)
Laid out on the ground-cloth are the flowers of the forest of Aotearoa/New Zealand (TILES). Before the they cease flowering, you, as team-members of DAY or NIGHT, must co-operate to carry enough pollen to each tile (PLAYER DISCS).

Played over 4 chapters, each chapter must be complete before you can lift the lid on the next. To make this happen, you’ll all need to co-operate!

Element cards – water, wind & sun (ROUNDS) – affect your movement, and wind & water move tiles about too. Check the back of your discs each round, to find who can move (if any).

When enough pollen is landed, and the sun has ripened them into seeds and berries, then the tiles are turned over.

Now, in the final chapter, the team that collects the most berries wins!

CHAPTER A: Lifting off & landing pollen
CHAPTER B: Wind is a pollinator too
CHAPTER C: Passage of berries
CHAPTER D: Clearing the ground

    “Intriguing, inspiring and informative – this largely unseen world of pollinators came to life as we flew, crept and crawled our way from plant to plant with our nectar and berry- hunting friends. Such a gift ~ taonga towards our greater understanding of the web of life in New Zealand ~ Aotearoa” Jane (Environmentalist, Taupo)

    This game is a very interesting way to get an insight into NZ wildlife and to understand why loving and respecting even small things like insects and flowers is so important.
