It's all about the sun. Oh Yeah!
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.
Each turn the sun moves around the board, shifting the directions of its rays so different trees are now bathed in light and generate light points based on the size of the tree- as long as the tree is in the light and not shadowed by other trees. On your turn you can take a couple of different actions including:
-Planting seeds on the board
-Growing trees to the next size
-Harvesting fully grown trees
When you grow a tree you need to have an available tree of the next size next to your player board. So, in order for a tree to grow you need to first buy a bigger tree.
Once you understand this sequence of events the gameplay is pretty straightforward and turns are quick. You usually only have enough light points to do 1-3 actions per turn.
It is light, green and available for you to play on Board Game Arena right now! And if you are too shy to dive into the rules, you can just learn it by playing the tutorial included!
