Everything in an ecosystem can change how it works. Add a new species of plant or animal and things are bound to change. It's creating the most perfectly balanced ecosystem that's the goal in Cascadia, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Cascadia is a beautiful strategy board game for 1-4 players that plays in 30-45 minutes.
In Cascadia, players compete to create the most harmonious ecosystem by selecting and adding habitats and wildlife to their environment. The goal in placing habitat tiles is to create contiguous corridors by matching rivers, prairies, wetlands, forests, and mountains. Once habitats are placed, players populate them with the wildlife species that each habitat supports. Each species has their own spatial requirements and connections to one another and their ecosystem!
Cascadia is a modular, dual-layer puzzle, with variable scoring conditions that is simple to learn, but challenging to master!
The game's around 15x funded with 29 days left to go.
