The ultimate "back to nature" board game! We at Bambooya love this game!
This Wildcraft! Herbal Adventure Game is a cooperative board game that teaches edible and medicinal plants to kids and adults alike!
The game starts off with a story about Grandma needing huckleberries to bake a huckleberry pie, as well as the herbs she uses. The adventure starts as you set off up the mountain, through several ecosystems, in search of 26 important edible and medicinal plants and their uses in mostly first aid situations. The 26 plants featured on 52 cards include herbs such as: nettle, dandelion, comfrey, calendula, echinachea, chamomile, field mint, wild rose, St. Johnswort, horsetail, yarrow, burdock, cattail, valerian, plantain, jewelweed, and catnip to name just a few!
Through wildcrafting (the harvesting of wild plants), kids learn team work and a reliance on each other’s knowledge of plants to make it to the Huckleberry Patch and safely back to Grandma’s house before dark.
Wildcraft! fosters a connection to nature and before you know it, you and your kids will be identifying plants in the park or yard... and you'll find yourself saying, "Hey! That's chickweed! I can eat that AND use it to heal a wound."
For Ages: 4 to adult and for 1 to 4 players.
