Wildcraft! is a board game. It is designed to be simple, and to introduce folks to the edible and medicinal plants around them. Adding a level of how to use them can get really complicated, as there are so many ways you can use plants for various ailments and edible purposes.
Of course, the game does teach you a bit about the plants, but it might not be to the level of every player's liking. Everyone wants to learn different aspects of plants and how to use them. Just like you can change the game's rules to make it simpler for kids, you can also change them to make it more complicated. Feel free to add that level of play.
To learn more about how to use the plants, be sure to check out the free bonus, Wildcraft! Plants: A Pocket Guide. This handy guide explores all 27 plants in the game. Each page has a beautiful botanical illustration that points out key identifying characteristics, as well as a quick reference that shows what each herb is used for.
For kids, the magic of this fabulous little pocket guide is how game creator Kimberly Gallagher wraps up all this herbal information into little stories that help your kids remember the details. The Pocket Guide just may be the very best herbal field guide for kids.
