5) Saving the Rainforest

What you need

  • Game board
  • 24 game cards
  • 12 impact cards
  • 24 tokens**
  • scissors*
*Not provided 

**An axe is printed on one side and Squizzel is printed on the reverse side.

How to play (2 to 4 players)

1. Cut along the lines of the game cards, impact cards and tokens.

2. Put the game board in the middle. Assign a forest of 6 trees to each player.

3. Shuffle the ‘game cards’ and ‘impact cards’ and put them in two stacks on the game board.

4. Give each player 6 tokens and put away the extra tokens.

5. Starting from the youngest, each player takes turn to pick a card.

6. If the action on the card leads to deforestation or the cutting down of trees, the player must put an ‘axe token’ on a tree. Pick up an ‘impact card’ and read aloud the impact of cutting down trees to the other players, then place the card back to the bottom on the ‘impact’ pile.

7. If the action on the card helps to save trees, put a token showing Squizzel on the tree.

8. The game ends when all players have covered the 6 trees in their forests with tokens.

9. The player who saves the most trees (has the most number of trees covered with Squizzel tokens) wins!
