We received a CRISP Technology Grant to build an app

The Grant On April 4, 2015, Maia, My dad, and I officially received our grant. We got all dressed up and went to the special luncheon. There we watched a bunch of other people get their grants, and then we were up. We got our check and told a little about our game. We will use the money to progress on our game and buy the technology we need. For instance we bought a new camera and Marco lens. It will also pay for our new app. This grant will help us improve our game....
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...
Fields and Meadows

Fields and Meadows

The fields and meadows card has different pictures of fields and meadows. Three have a picture of a field in the winter. And two have a picture of a field in the summer. The strohmstead can be used for any of the four environments including fields and meadows. The wild card can also be any environment. Where I live we have lots of fields and meadows. Our neighbor has a farm with a lot of fields. My dad took a picture of crows in the field. My sister took a picture a deer in a...
The Strohmstead Card

The Strohmstead Card

During the making of the wild cards for the game my dad came up with a nickname for our section of land, the Strohmstead. Our section of land has a forest, pond, two streams, and a field. That is the reason we included the Strohmstead. What makes this card special is it is all the environments in the game, which means you can play any two plants on this card. It also means that you can move/transplant any of your plants at any time in the game....

The Amber Snail

My favorite picture is the one I took of a snail. I was outside my house when I took the picture. The snail was on our welcome mat in front of our house. It was a perfect shot. It’s in the second edition of our card game. It is also on our business card. My mom’s favorite is the amber snail too. – Maia...
