Photosynthesis

£39.99

In this beautiful and unique game, several varieties of trees compete to grow and spread their seeds in the sunlight of the forest.

Take your trees through their lifecycle, from seedling to full bloom to rebirth, and earn points as their leaves collect energy from the revolving sun’s rays. Carefully pick where you sow and when you grow, as trees in the shadows are blocked from light, and from points.

What’s in the box?

  • Game board
  • One sun segment
  • Four sun revolution counters
  • Four player boards
  • First player token
  • 24 scoring tokens
  • Four light point trackers
  • 24 seed tokens
  • 32 small trees
  • 16 medium trees
  • Eight large trees

How to play:

Each round has two phases:

  1. The Photosynthesis Phase: count light points based on the position of the sun and add to the individual player boards. Players get light points for each tree that is not in the shadow of another tree. A small tree scores 1 point, a medium tree scores 2 points, a large tree scores 3 points.
  2. The Life Cycle Phase: spend your points! Players can use their light points to purchase seeds or trees of any size from their player boards. Players can plant seeds or upgraded trees. Or you can choose to collect scoring tokens by harvesting large trees.

The game ends when the sun has completed three revolutions around the board. You count points based on your scoring tokens. The player with the most points wins the game!

Bonus!

Photosynthesis reinforces maths and problem-solving skills.
