About the event

Unboxing Thursdays we open, learn, and play games as we add them to our library.

This Thursday we are playing and learning Forest Shuffle & Wild Realms!

Forest Shuffle: 7.6

In Forest Shuffle, players compete to gather the most valuable trees, then attract species to these trees, thus creating an ecologically balanced habitat for flora and fauna.

To start, each player has six cards in hand, with cards depicting either a particular type of tree or two forest dwellers (animal, plant, mushroom, etc.), with these latter cards being divided in half, whether vertically or horizontally, with one dweller in each card half.

On a turn, either draw two cards — whether face down from the deck or face up from the clearing — and add them to your hand, or play a card from your hand by paying the cost, then putting it into play.

During set-up, three winter cards were placed into the bottom third of the deck. When the third winter card is drawn, the game ends immediately, then players tally their points based on the trees and dwellers in their forest. Whoever scores the most points wins.

Forest Shuffle is the first in a line of Lookout games sporting the Lookout Greenline label, produced on FSC certified paper and avoiding plastic completely.

Wild Realms: 7.1

The ancient civilizations of humanity are forgotten. Nature has reclaimed the world. Now is the Age of Animals. The Wild-lands stand unknown...unsettled...but with the dangerous and untamed, also comes beauty and wonder. The stunning vista of the Realms is yours to discover! Search out the Four Realms—the refreshing winds of Air, the lush forests of Land, the rushing waves of Water and the burning chasms of Fire. Quest with Animal allies into these untamed places and establish a new Kingdom of Animals within the Wild Realms!

In this competitive game, 2-4 players draw 5-cards into their hand and use them to "build" their Kingdom by playing the Four Realms (Air, Land, Water, Fire) and Animals to defend them.

Players play their cards each turn in four phases: Unleash a Legendary Animal, Play Realm cards and Animals to defend them, Attack opponents to "knockout" their defenders and activate Animal allies' special abilities , Move Animals between Realms and Alliances in your Kingdom, and "Lock" Realm(s).

During the Attack phase, if a player feels the need (they are "behind" or just feeling lucky) and have at least one "locked" Realm, they may engage in a risky "Realm Duel.".

A player wins (and the game ends) if they are the first to lock all Four Realms (Air, Land, Water, Fire) thereby completing their Kingdom.

Your Animal allies stand ready! Will you be the first to raise a new Animal Kingdom out of the Wild Realms?

Join us Thursday, February 1st at 6:00 pm for our Unboxing Thursday Event. See ya soon!
