A very original game concept, with evolving dynamics that keep you thinking and on your toes throughout the game. Starting at the outer edge of the forest, players grow their trees upwards to the sunlight that acts as currency in this game, as well as, spreading seeds towards the richer soil at the centre of the board. But it's the sun circling the board that adds extra interest and complexity to this game, changing how shadows are cast from one move to the next, so players need to think ahead to avoid being robbed of sunlight in future turns. There are a fair number of details to juggle when growing your forest, making this a very interesting game, but one that is perhaps better suited to older kids (aged 10+, or even older).


Manufacturer Description

Welcome to the world of Photosynthesis, the green strategy board game! Plant and shape the ever-changing forest as you cultivate your seeds and your strategy. Take your trees through their life-cycle, from seedling to full bloom to rebirth, and earn points as their leaves collect energy from the revolving sun’s rays. Carefully pick where you sow and when you grow, as trees in the shadows are blocked from light, and from points. This game features realistic gameplay and beautiful graphics.
