This is my favorite game. It's shoots and ladders for budding herbalists. Good for ages three and up, I'd guess. Cooperative, the goal is to gather huckleberries to bring home to grandmother. Injuries and illnesses along the way are treated with herbs, which include common name and Latin genus and species. Here's the link.


Best wishes,
Weybridge, Vermont

We enjoy that game too.  It's my 6 year old daughter Fiona's favorite game.  Our family forages and uses a lot of wild edible and medicinal plants and it's a nice companion to that.  The down side is that it doesn't give any more information on using the plants for the ailments it lists.  In some cases we've been very shocked by some of the suggested plants for various ailments and injuries, and in some cases we regularly use different ones.  It would be great if they had a companion book of some sort with more information.

They also have a book series called Herb Fairies or something like that, but I was disappointed in it.  My kids weren't fans either, and they are usually the kinds to ask for "one more chapter!" with most books.
