About this deal

All amazing, all wonders to be studied forever and, even then, to be felt more than fully understood.

Having grown up in the city and spent all my summers at Moyie Lake with my grandparents, I knew from a very young age that the woods was where I wanted to live. I have lived in forested areas my entire life (a large chunk of my life even in a literal hand-built log cabin, and currently on the edge of an actual United States National Forest) and have always heard the term rural used to describe such areas. As you walk around the massive greenhouses seeing lots of different types of plants and trees, you come across birds and animals, some in tanks and glass enclosures, some are wandering around with the visitors. One such instance is the ability for fire and rescue to reach you in a timely fashion, regardless of weather conditions.There is much life in the canopy, but primarily it is a surface for catching light'the source of energy that powers the entire forest. While this is not an aspect I take enough advantage of these days, I have spent many long summer afternoons building cabins, tepees, and lean-tos.

The production value and artwork in Living Forest are without a doubt gorgeous – the colours are so vibrant on the table. Having played several times now, I gravitate towards collecting protective trees more than other actions. And icing on the cake, you increase the corresponding victory condition from 13 to 15 by emptying a pile of Kodama cards. They withdraw gradually and voluntarily, for example because they initially live professionally in and with the forest and gradually reduce their contacts with "civilisation".If you live in the country near a forest, the air is clean and filled with oxygen and phytoncides, a substance emitted by plants and trees and generally means the aroma of the forest in layman’s terms. As built environments steadily encroach on natural ones, it is clear that such respect is not the norm and that to live in harmony with the land is a goal escaping many of us.
