Wild: Serengeti is now live on Kickstarter:
Over the course of 6 rounds, players compete to earn the most points by completing scene cards.
On their turn, players perform 1 or 2 basic actions by paying 1 coin and placing their camera marker onto an action space on the board. The various actions allow players to discover new animals and place them onto an empty space of the map, move animals that are already on the map or take new scene cards from the card pool.
Players may complete these scene cards at any time during their turn, as soon as the animals and their pattern shown on the card matches with their position on the board. They immediately gain the rewards, which may consist of food or SFX tokens, icons they can use when scoring other completed scenes, but also immediate points marked on the score track.
Once every player has passed, either because they cannot pay for their actions anymore, or they no longer wish to perform actions for this round, play proceeds to the next round and a little preparation phase occurs: players gain income, and before rounds 4, 5 and 6 a Great Migration causes some animals to be removed from the map.
After 6 rounds the game ends, players tally their points and the most points wins!
If you take a look at the pictures, you see how great this game looks on the table: it’s filled with amazing looking animeeples, the artwork is just gorgeous, not to mention this is only a prototype version!
Wild: Serengeti is a typical family+ game: it comes with straightforward rules and basic worker placement, combined with a challenging puzzle when placing and moving the animals on the map and trying to match them to your scene cards.
