In Bosk, players control a species of tree and compete to control areas of the park by letting their trees’ leaves blow and land in different spaces. The game is played over four rounds – spring, summer, autumn and winter.
In spring, you plant your trees and in Summer, visitors travel the trails where you planted trees and reward players based on tree placement. However, keep in mind that where you plant your trees in the spring also affects your long-term plans. In autumn, the game picks up the pace. By manipulating the wind direction and deciding how many leaves fall from each tree, players try to maximize their control of the board. In winter, the leaves are used to score points based on the area controlled.
Each player also controls one cute-as-heck squirrel meeple. No one can mess with your squirrel!
