We really enjoy this game. The boys and I play it together frequently, when Chris is around to distract, subdue and/or hogtie Whinnie.

I thought Nic would like it, but the real surprise is how much Theo enjoys learning about all the herbs. And that they both have the patience to play an entire game.

We’ve change the rules to suit us — like always being able to help one another with their ‘troubles’ instead of only when one possesses a ‘cooperation card.’

The last time we went to the store for some dried herbs both boys enjoyed finding ones that they’d learned about. It is so exciting for me to hear, ‘oh! Comfrey! that helps bumps and bruises.’

Nic and I are looking forward to some real Wildcrafting in the forest around our home this summer.
