When our son Rowan was little, we always wanted to play the nature and cooperative games with him. However, he always pulled out Candy Land or Chutes and Ladders.

Then it hit us! Why not make a nature-based educational game featuring all the things kids love about those timeless board games? Also, why not make cooperative play even MORE fun than competitive play? Wildcraft! was born!

Now, everyone can share their passion for plants with their kids and grandkids in a way that brings everyone together.
