Grandma needs huckleberries to bake a pie. You and your cousins embark on an adventure up the mountain to collect berries as well as herbs she uses.
Will you all harvest the right plants to help with the trouble you run into along the way? Will you make it back before nightfall?
The only way to win is by helping each other out.

The trouble cards...
There are 52 trouble cards. The icons on these cards match up with the icons on the Plant Cards. That's how you know what plant can help with your trouble card. This way, even small children can play!
This is by far one of our most favourite cooperative board games we've come across. Wildcraft! teaches you and your children 25 important edible and medicinal plants and their uses in mostly first aid situations. (Wildcrafting is the harvesting of wild plants)
It also teaches team work, for you will rely on each other’s knowledge of plants and good fortune to make it to the Huckleberry Patch and safely back to Grandma’s.
Wildcraft! is a great introduction to the world of edible and medicinal herbs for children of ALL ages.
Oh, AND this is pretty cool too!
