  • Cascadia is a puzzly tile-laying and token-drafting game featuring the habitats and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest.

    In the game, you take turns building out your own terrain area and populating it with wildlife. You start with three hexagonal habitat tiles (with five types of habitat in the game), and on a turn you choose a new habitat tile that's paired with a wildlife token, then place that tile next to your other ones and place the wildlife token on an appropriate habitat. (Each tile depicts 1-3 types of wildlife from the five types in the game, and you can place at most one tile on a habitat.) Four tiles are on display, with each tile being paired at random with a wildlife token, so you must make the best of what's available — unless you have a nature token to spend so that you can pick your choice of each item.

    Ideally you can place habitat tiles to create matching terrain that reduces fragmentation and creates wildlife corridors, mostly because you score for the largest area of each type of habitat at game's end, with a bonus if your group is larger than each other player's. At the same time, you want to place wildlife tokens so that you can maximize the number of points scored by them, with the wildlife goals being determined at random by one of the three scoring cards for each type of wildlife. Maybe hawks want to be separate from other hawks, while foxes want lots of different animals surrounding them and bears want to be in pairs. Can you make it happen?

    A worthy winner of the Spiel De Jahres!

    The perfect, relaxing tile placement game. It has no hard edges that will put players in a bad spot or ruin their score. Everyone has a decent score at the end but, the player that did the best job always wins.

    It can be 20 turns of trying to absolutely maximize your points or 20 turns of making a pretty landscape with some foxes, different people can play different ways.

    Great map builder game

    I was missing a couple pieces outta the box. But contacted the publisher so that will be sorted out. Other than that both single/ multi-player mode are fun time to see who can get the higher score.
