About this deal

Four tiles are on display, with each tile being paired at random with a wildlife token, so you must make the best of what’s available — unless you have a nature token to spend so that you can pick your choice of each item. Achievements – these are straightforward goals, and the winner of the game only gets to tick the achievement off on their hiking trail if they hit it. I would say that solo Cascadia encourages a slightly different strategy to regular multiplayer mode.

You have to choose what you are going to target, bearing in mind the luck of the Token and Tile draw. If you get stuck, the rulebook has an excellent description of each one, and the cards themselves have icons and a little bit of text to help.Explore hundreds of unique puzzles and build beautiful terrain maps in competitive, solo, and family modes. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Swap cats for wildlife and quilts for the Great Outdoors, and you’re pretty much there – though Cascadia is a little easier on the brain and therefore a tad more chilled.

The solo mode of Cascadia elegantly replicates the 2-player experience, taking the drafting mechanics and turning them into a cascading market. If you are playing with children, or you wish to simplify the gameplay for yourself or other players, the game includes variant scoring. While you are working single-handedly on your ecosystem, there is a small amount player interaction when selecting what to take on your turn. Note that the game play is slightly different in solo mode but it is explained in full in the solo review). In addition to the Landmarks module, this expansion includes more unique wildlife scoring cards and habitat tiles to add variety and enough components to play Cascadia with 5-6 players.Randomly pick 4 Habitat Tiles and 4 Wildlife Tokens and pair them up in a row – this is your common pool.

The easy mode makes each animal score in a similar way, reducing the number of scoring conditions the player must learn. In Cascadia, there are not many components to talk about really, what is there is very functional, beautiful and needed. The game is pretty easy to learn, and the artwork plus quality of the materials make this a good value. So, for example, salmon score higher the more you have in an adjacent run, and Elks like to be with their buddies so score better in groups. You can mix up the scoring using different cards and every game does feel slightly different depending on what comes out of the bag.So, on your turn of Cascadia, you are going to pick one Habitat Tile and the associated Wildlife Token from the 4 randomly paired choices on offer. In addition, more wildlife scoring cards and habitat tiles are being added to give even more variety to keep old players involved and enough components to add a 5th and 6th player to the game.

The downside to this is that it makes choosing the game of the month for January a really tough decision. If we don’t have a game you are looking for it please contact us and we will do our best to help you. In the Cascadia board game, you take turns building out your own terrain area and populating it with wildlife. Even when a winner is declared, it doesn't feel like a soul-wrenching defeat, ensuring friendships reman intact. But, when you feel like you have got your Cascadia wings, you can launch into campaign mode which takes you on a hike through the Cascadian landscape.Ideally you can place habitat tiles to create matching terrain that reduces fragmentation and creates wildlife corridors, mostly because you score for the largest area of each type of habitat at game’s end, with a bonus if your group is larger than each other player’s.
