Savernake Forest by Devir

In Savernake Forest the animals gather and store food for the winter. Players help the animals gather and store food as they build their own section of the forest with paths where animals and food will appear. Players strive to have animals collect their favorite food on each path. This drafting, pattern building, and tile placement game supports 2-4 players, aged 10+, and plays in about 30 minutes.

There are over 23 different types of animals which live together in the forest, represented by one of the two decks of cards. The other deck represents the paths with food. Each player is randomly given an animal card which depicts how much food they can store and their preferences. A central market of cards has animal allies who add a tactical advantage by allowing players to store more food, be the first to choose a card next turn, allow players to attract more animals to their forest, and many other game effects. There is also a 2-player variant which modifies the game rules to increase difficulty.

Savernake Forest is designed by Rodrigo Rego and features art by Núria Aparicio. Expect Savernake Forest to release sometime in Q1 of 2023.
