Create wildlife habitats in Cascadia

September 28, 2020 - 2:20pm

Flatout Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Cascadia, a tile-placement set collection game of creating habitats in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. for one to four players. The tiles in Cascadia are hexagons that either are all of one habitat or split between two habitats, from the game's five habitat types. Each tile will support one or two types of wildlife from the game's five types of wildlife. Each player starts with their own habitat starter, comprised of three habitat hexes. In setup, there will be randomized pairings of habitat tiles and wildlife tokens. On each player's turn, they will select one pairing and add the tile and token to their personal display. Only one wildlife token may be placed on each hex. 

Players earn points for the largest contiguous corridor of each habitat type in their display. The player with the largest corridor of each habitat type and the largest overall will receive bonus points. Additionally, there will be a variable scoring condition for each wildlife type.

Cascadia is designed by Randy Flynn, and the art is by Beth Sobel. The tiles and token are clear and bright. The wildlife scoring cards feature eye-catching illustrations of the animals. The Kickstarter campaign runs until October 22nd. Check out the Kickstarter page for more details.
