Description

The Renature board game is a majority game with dominoes for 2-4 players.

Each player gets a board with large pieces of wood in the form of grass, a bush, a fir tree and a tree. These are used for the majorities on the large forest game board and are available in white and in the respective player color. In addition, each gets thirteen dominoes with two out of ten animal motifs on each.

On your turn, place one of three dominoes drawn on a green field on the forest game board. Other stones must of course show the same animal as that on which the stone is placed. If the stone borders on a brown field in the forest, the player can decide whether a tuft of grass or something else should be placed on the field. Tufts of grass have a value of 1, bushes 2, firs 3 and trees count 4 points for the majority when it comes to a rating. For every piece of wood that is already in this brown area and has the same or a lower value.

If a brown area is framed with dominoes, the majority is scored and the player with the most points in this area gets what is printed as a large number on the sunflower in this area. Whoever has the second most points gets the lower number together with the player who closed the area. White pieces of wood are not among the majority of the player who has used them.

In the course of the game, you run out of trees, but these can be bought with clouds from the plan to use them again. Clouds can also be used to buy a double move and to move the wild card to another animal at the top of the game board. This animal then counts as all animals and makes it easier to put on. At the end a domino is drawn and the next player’s turn.

    Who knew nature could be so mean?
    Renature looks lovely and inviting, but beneath that veneer is a mean area control battle with a clever scoring system. The components are brilliant with wooden dominos with animals on instead of dots. You place them using the normal domino rules and if you place next to a soil area you can place one of your plants into that area. Your plants are worth different values and the player with the most value will ultimately take the points but every player also has neutral plants which can mix things up in scoring and stop your opponents from scoring big.
    There are also some points available for closing out an area even if you are present in that one. Clouds are a little strange. you start with six but there only four more available for everyone, which makes using them a tough choice but also feels a bit underdeveloped.
    Scoring is also the most complex thing in the game and slightly goes against the otherwise simple rules. Explaining it to new gamers and families may take some extra demonstration. Other than that I’m super enjoying my plays of Renature.
