An Herbal Adventure Game
By Kimberly Gallagher, M.Ed. Illustrated by Beatriz Mendoza

      What do kids love most in board games? Remember the slides, short cuts and ladders in Candyland or Chutes and Ladders? When you were a kid playing board games, weren't these your favorite parts? Wildcraft! is a cooperative board game that teaches edible and medicinal plants, has waterfalls to slide down, logs to cross and deer trails to wander along. Wildcraft! was selected as one of the BEST Natural Toys of 2008 by Mothering magazine.

      The Story... Grandma needs huckleberries to bake a pie. You and your cousins embark on an adventure up the mountain to collect berries as well as herbs she uses.Will you harvest the right plants to help with the trouble you run into along the way? Will you make it back before nightfall?

      The only way to win is by helping each other out. Wildcraft! teaches you twenty-five important edible and medicinal plants and their uses in mostly first aid situations. It also teaches team work, for you rely on each other's knowledge of plants and good fortune to make it to the Huckleberry Patch and safely back to Grandma's. Wildcraft! is a great introduction to the world of edible and medicinal herbs for children of ALL ages. It is a beautifully illustrated, nature based, cooperative game created in the tradition of the classic board games. It also comes with a downloadable story to enhance the story of the game.

      Wildcraft! includes a 20x20 inch game board, instructions, 4 player pieces, 52 plant cards, 52 trouble cards, 25 cooperative cards, and a spinner. Naturalist and artist Beatriz Mendoza uses vibrant watercolors to create a colorful and playful world for Wildcraft! plant cards show the level of detail needed for identification in the field.

      Wildcraft! fosters a connection to nature. Before you know it, you and your kids will be identifying plants in the park or yard... and you'll find yourself saying, "Hey! That's chickweed! I can eat that AND use it to heal a wound."

      Wildcraft! is great for younger players, and after your child has played once or twice, they can play on their own. No reading is required. Older kids and adults will get A LOT from this game. However, even if your 5 year old isn't reading, they are "patterning" on what the plants look like and what you can use them for. You can also make up simpler rules for the wee ones. No prior knowledge of plants is needed.
