Cellulose: A Plant Cell Biology Game Up On Kickstarter

Nucleus. Chloroplasts. Cell Walls. It's been a while since I studied plant cells back in school. But, obviously, without what happens in countless plant cells every day, our world wouldn't be anything like it is now. Now, you can bring this wonder of nature to your tabletops with Cellulose: A Plant Cell Biology Game. It's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Cellulose: A Plant Cell Biology Game is a worker placement game that puts 1-5 players inside a plant cell, where they will compete over limited resources in order to undergo photosynthesis, produce carbohydrates, and build the cell wall to score points. With everyone vying for the same actions, players must time their use of proteins, hormones, and cell component cards in order to diversify their strategies and outplay the competition!

Cellulose is the sequel and counterpart to our 2017 release Cytosis (BGG). The two games have complementary themes and some familiar game systems, but Cellulose is a new standalone game that gives players greater control over available resources, strategic paths, and even the game length.

The game's more than 16x funded with 14 days left to go.
