This is one of our favourite board games to play. It’s fun to play as a family, for the kids by themselves or together with friends. It’s a gorgeously designed, carefully thought-out co-operative game of the highest quality. That’s a mouthful! Basically we love it. I love it so much, I bought a second one to offer as a giveaway here on my blog.
“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.”
Along the “snakes and ladders” type path, obstacles need to be faced like getting a scraped knee, sunburn or bee sting. Working together you need to figure out which of the herbs you’ve picked along the way will ease your troubles. This game offers a fun way to learn more about edible and medicinal plants and their uses for every day life.
In the interest of encouraging a love for herbal knowledge in others, I’m happy to offer this brand new Wildcraft game. If you’re interested in having your name put in for a draw for this board game, please leave a comment and tell me one of the following:
- about the most interesting or favourite herb that you grow or
- about an herbal remedy that you use or
- if you have no experience with herbs, tell me what kind of herb or herbal remedy you’d like to know more about or
- you get the picture; comment with any of your herbal thoughts
If you’d like to triple your chance to win, let others know about this giveaway via your own blog or facebook etc and let me know. I’ll randomly pick a winner August 15th 2011. Thanks to the postal lockout last month here in Canada, I’m doing this giveaway a bit later than I’d wanted to and with an upcoming music festival and a trip down to the lower mainland for a doctor’s appointment and possible tonsillectomy for Lily, the giveaway will last longer than I originally intended.
(This giveaway is open to those in and outside of Canada.)
ETA: Extended to August 21 2011 when one name will be randomly drawn. The game will be mailed out Monday, August 22 2011 to the lucky winner.
