Fire and Flora: A Seriously Fun Card Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Nature is deep and beautiful. Unfortunately, in modern American life, most people - and most children - have relatively little contact with nature. As a scientist, gamer, idealist, and child-at-heart, I was saddened by this situation but inspired by the potential of games to teach, transform, and inspire.

In Fire and Flora, your goal is to manage a diverse, and beautiful landscape in an unpredictable world. The game cards represent real-world plants, animals, places, and ecological forces, while the game rules model the real-world connections among these real-world elements. To win the game, you’ll have to be crafty, and make good use of your resources: rainstorms, fires, weed crews, pack rats, evil squirrels, and more.

Fire and Flora has been endorsed by teachers, scientists, full-grown kids, still-growing kids, and was an Official Selection at IndieCade 2015. Come join us for some seriously good fun!
