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.

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...

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...
