Cascadia offers a captivating blend of tile-laying and token-drafting gameplay, immersing players in the diverse habitats and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. Each player takes on the role of a habitat builder, strategically expanding their terrain area and populating it with wildlife. Beginning with three hexagonal habitat tiles representing the various ecosystems, players select additional habitat tiles paired with wildlife tokens on their turns, carefully placing them to optimize their habitat configurations and maximize scoring potential.

As players build their habitats, they must consider the interplay between terrain types and wildlife placement to create cohesive ecosystems and maximize point-scoring opportunities. The game presents players with a selection of four tiles, each paired randomly with a wildlife token, challenging them to adapt their strategy based on the available options. Utilizing nature tokens allows players to exert greater control over their choices, enhancing their ability to create optimal habitat configurations and fulfill wildlife scoring objectives.

The strategic depth of Cascadia lies in balancing the creation of cohesive habitat structures with the fulfillment of varied wildlife scoring objectives. Players aim to construct contiguous terrain areas that minimize fragmentation and create wildlife corridors, maximizing scoring potential for both habitats and wildlife. With each type of wildlife governed by distinct scoring criteria, players must strategize accordingly, ensuring that their placement of wildlife tokens aligns with scoring card objectives. Cascadia provides an engaging and immersive gaming experience, challenging players to navigate the complexities of habitat construction and wildlife management in the picturesque landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.
