The 2016 Starter Decks are in stock!

    Our brand new starter decks are now in stock. Join us at the elk Expo in Benezette, PA this weekend to see what the new decks look like and start your Christmas shopping early. If you can’t join us in Elk County, you can always order cards online under our new Buy Games page. We have a lot of news, but I will reserve it for another blog post in the future. Maybe Maia or Athia will tell you about our next starter decks in a week or two. I’ll give you a clue… it involves the National Parks. Cheers, Jason... read more

New Decks Coming!

After a lot of pictures, traveling, and even more researching we are finally have more cards. We are releasing four new decks in September, Mammoth Caves Area, Santa Monica Bay Area, Denali Area, and Quiet Creek Herb Farm. My favorite deck to make was the Mammoth Cave deck. We traveled to Kentucky and camped for three days and two nights. During the trip Maia and I upped our camping experience and even camped in a thunderstorm. To get all the pictures we needed we went into the caves and got a great tour by a fifth generation tour guide. We went through tiny spaces and big spaces, dry and wet, but all of it was amazing. In one spot on the tour we saw the Frozen Niagara. It’s beautiful. Denali and mammoth caves are the first of many national park starter decks that we will make.  We were given permission to use pictures from many national parks in our game.-... read more

Things are growing at Two Sisters in the Wild, LLC.

People helping people… A special thanks goes out to the Fraternal Order of Eagles throughout the state of Pennsylvania. We sent letters requesting that they send EDGE of EXTINCTION to their local libraries and schools. Kittanning, Brookville, Clarion, Sykesville, Kane, Renovo, and Bradford have responded so far. We now have ten more schools and libraries receiving 2015 Education Sets this year. If you are part of an FOE and would like to sponsor a school or library in your area, please let us know. We will contact the school and science teacher to confirm that they would use it within their classroom and then send a formal letter to your FOE board. Also, the Titusville Moose Lodge has funded a Classroom Set for the Titusville Middle School. Many thanks to them as well.   Where to buy cards… You can now purchase starter decks at Fischel’s Hobby Center in DuBois and Quiet Creek in Brookville. For a complete list of locations, check out our distribution chart. If you are a Cub Scout or Boy Scout, you can now buy Starter Decks at Camp Mountain Run. Bill, Eric, and Hank at the Bucktail Council were kind enough to play-test the game with us a few weeks ago, and thought it would be a good fit for their campers this summer. Both the Punxsutawney Library and Brookville Library have single card binders in their libraries. If you want to buy single cards or want to build a custom deck, they have cards for sale in their libraries. We are doing this as a fundraiser for libraries and 50% of the money... read more

BOOM! We’ve upgraded everything.

Earlier this spring along with another successful Kickstarter campaign, we shifted our distribution method from an in-house operation (literally) to drivethrucards.com… We still use Square, which upgraded itself this past week, and at the end of this week, I’ll be attending Unpub 6, which will be my first game creator’s convention. The girls and I have sent the game to over 50 schools / libraries so far. We are ramping up to host a few competitions this summer as well. Our next event will be during Earth Week at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. On Monday, April 18 from 2-4 pm at the Science and Technology Center in Clarion, PA we will host a game day event. The person with the highest single game score at the end of the event will take home a 2015 Gold Competition Deck. One of the newest additions to the website was added at the request of some of the educators using the game. It is the 2015 Classroom Set, which include twenty (20) starter decks and a complete 2015 Collection. If your classroom is ready to rock a little EDGE of EXTINCTION as part of your curriculum, let us know. The price tag is $350, but don’t let that discourage you from requesting one. We have been working with various groups and organizations to support the game, financially. Stay Awesome, and thanks for supporting the EDGE… Jason... read more
Creating a Golden Competition Deck

Creating a Golden Competition Deck

We started this deck so we could have a great prize for the Kickstarter campaign and for game days. After dad created the very first one he finally convinced us to create our own. Maia, Dad, my best friend Emily and I all made a new deck. The next step was trial and error. After about two weeks of intense gameplay I think we finally have a winner. My sister Maia’s deck has won almost every game that we played, and today was the day that we decided that Maia’s deck was the best. After last night and today of me crushing my dad with this deck all of us agreed that this was the deck. To prove that this deck is a beast, here are the scores from the gameplay... read more

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... read more
Redbank Valley High School played EDGE of EXTINCTION today

Redbank Valley High School played EDGE of EXTINCTION today

Three of Greg Campbell’s Redbank Valley High School Science Classes learned to play EDGE of EXTINCTION using Education Sets donated by Erin and Kevin Schuetz. Most students picked up the game within 5 minutes. All of them had it within 10 minutes… Excellent experience for me and hopefully them. I look forward to doing more of this. Three different classes, around 42 students, played the game. Special thanks the Greg Campbell and the Schuetz’s for making this... read more
