New Tile Laying Game on KS

Well Canopy Walk, designed by Gérard Pierson & Dennis Kirps, is a new game on KS looking for funding and its theme is not one that I've seen before.  In Canopy Walk, players will be walking through a jungle  - connecting tiles as they traverse through the canopy tops. "Their route starts in southern Argentina, Buenos Aires, and leads them, first by plane, then by bus, and finally by boat all the way up Rio Paraná, to the north of Argentina and the borders of Valle Grande. It is only when the waters get too shallow and the brush too thick to continue by boat, that the teams realize the jungle crawls with creatures such as crocodiles, snakes, pumas, and jaguars. But the worst of all are the piranhas that infest the swampy jungle rivers. By now the teams cannot go back, so the only means of safely venturing further into the jungle is by building canopy walks to claim square by square of Valle Grande!"
