Ten-Tastic Tips for playing wild

  1. You should try and play one aquatic (water) and one terrestrial (land) environment card in your ecosystem.
  2. 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.
  3. The first of two strategies we know of between players in this game is how you stack your discarded cards.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. You should spread your plants out as evenly as possible to ensure your animals have a wide variety of environments to live in.
  9. If you’re new to our game, then you should start by playing our Education Edition to learn the basic rules and game-play.
  10. Even though my sister and I tried to make this game realistic, there are still loopholes, so use your common sense. Mallard ducks aren’t known for eating red-tailed hawks.



  1. I’ve not played yet but my nieces thought it was a great gift at Christmas time. Unfortunately they live in New Jersey and I can’t play with them. I’ll have to have a card party.:)

    • You should play it, it is fun. I think your nieces will like it a lot.

  2. I cannot express how proud I am of you two. It has been quite an experience watching you grow this idea in to what it has become now and I cant wait to see what it will develop in to.

    Keep going girls, the future is bright!

  3. This is a fantastic game, great for family game night. Kudos to you both 🙂

  4. I know that you two and your Dad have put in a lot of work and time but you really have accomplished a lot. I’m very proud of you.

  5. Your game looks like a lot of fun. I would like to try it, I will have to get a copy so I can play.
