Trees are a very important part of the ecosystem. And in this day and age of conservation, they seem more important than ever. Personally, despite being from the midwest (where a tall bush is all you might have for several miles around), I love a good forest. The kodama love forests, too. They're the tree spirits and in Kodama: The Tree Spirtis game from Action Phase Games, it's your job to make them as happy as you can. The just launched on Kickstarter.
In the game, you have your tree and must play other cards onto it in order to make the tree grow. You must place these new branches carefully, however, as you have to leave room to grow and for flowers to bloom. You have three seasons to get it right, providing an optimal number of branches, flowers, and insects. The one that satisfies their kodama the most, wins.
The Kickstarter campaign is set to run for another 30 days.
