On the Edge of Tips

Use the biologist to find any animal including humans. Using her to find Grandpa Strohm can win you the game. If you draw Grandpa Strohm at the beginning of the game, use him to find Grandma Strohm. Getting Grandma Strohm means you pick up double the cards that you would normally pick up. Extinction can kill humans also. This method works best when you have the two sisters card out, and you don’t have the web of life out. Invasive plant card is more powerful than the invasive animal card. If you knock out their plants then their ecosystem is crippled. When my dad and I were playing he made my canopy plant invasive and that knocked out my two twenty-three point cards therefore making me loose. If you play the invasive animal card then wait till the ninth or tenth round and play blight on them it destroys your opponent’s...

The Red-Spotted Newt

The Red-Spotted Newt

The Newt The newt is an amphibian.  It lives in wet or damp places, and is very small. It is one of my favorite cards because it has a lot of fun stories that I share with it. One example of a story is when my sister and me were at Beartown Rocks and we found a newt. As we were walking/climbing on the trail and rocks Maia spotted a newt. We picked it up and carried it for a few minutes and then we put it back. Afterwards we went to my grandma’s house and searched the exact name of the newt: A Red-Spotted Newt.   -signing out,...
Ten-Tastic  Tips for Playing WILD

Ten-Tastic Tips for Playing WILD

Ten-Tastic Tips for playing wild You should try and play one aquatic (water) and one terrestrial (land) environment card in your ecosystem. If you have all four environments in your hand and you have to choose which one to discard then I would discard the lakes and ponds card. The first of two strategies we know of between players in this game is how you stack your discarded cards. The second of these two strategies is to focus on the rare cards. There are few large animal and apex cards in the deck, so you should try to play as many of those cards as possible. The human card is the most flexible. Use it to fill in the gap of a food chain and replace it with an appropriate card when you draw one. Then use it to fill in the gap of another food chain… repeat until you fill all the numbers. Hold onto the Grandpa Strohm card until you have most of your numbers. Then use him to find a number that’s hard to get. Don’t forget about him though. You should check over your cards many times during the game because different cards represent multiple numbers. Many times, these cards can be rearranged to help you win. You should spread your plants out as evenly as possible to ensure your animals have a wide variety of environments to live in. If you’re new to our game, then you should start by playing our Education Edition to learn the basic rules and game-play. Even though my sister and I tried to make this game realistic, there are still...
A Looong Trip

A Looong Trip

My Trip Over Christmas Break It all started when my parents decided to have a long family trip to see family and get pictures for my game. We hadn’t seen some of my family in long time because they lived a long way away, and my mom and dad wanted us to see them again. We also went because we are making a new “Wild” game in the region South East North America. Our trip started in Harrisburg, PA. In Harrisburg we stayed at our cousins, Michelle, Shawn, Alex, and Ali, and had a blast. Alex is eighteen and Ali is twenty some so we didn’t see Ali, and the only time we saw Alex was a short period of time and then he left to stay at his friends. Most of the time spent there we watched “American Ninja Warrior” while catching up in life, having fun, and eating delicious food. Our trip then took us to Baltimore, Maryland to see an aquarium.  At the aquarium we met up with one of my best friends, Robin, and her family. We spent most of the day at the aquarium. My two favorite pictures from the aquarium are a picture of a giant sea turtle and me running to Robin and her running to me, arms out, ready to give a bear hug. While we were at the aquarium we saw many animals, ate lunch, saw a dolphin show and watched Robin’s little sister, Avery, when she got bored from being at the aquarium for so long.  Overall, we got many pictures and had lots of fun. The trip then took...
