Board Game Capital's Review:
Tiny TreesNot everyday do you see a game that begins rising from the table as each players creates an amazing replica of a gorgeous 3D tree. First off, our hats go off for such a brilliant game concept that revolves around building a three dimensional tree with your cards. We loved this idea when we first saw it and playing a game that lets you be part of such a creation is truly remarkable. You'll use roots, trunks, branches and even flowers to build your tree connecting cards together. Every player gets their own unique view of your tree.

Complimenting the tree building are the wonderful graphics on the cards. Unique and very well illustrated hexagonal cards make up this card game that create a great theme. Just the right amount of detail makes this game very pleasing to play. The different sizes and shapes of cards adds to the magic of your tiny tree.

We also loved that you can play in two different modes: for looks or for points. If you want to get competitive and get your strategy going, you can play for points utilizing flowers and bugs to gain you points. If you just want to build your tree for a fun activity to spawn the inner tree maker inside of you, then you're more than welcome to play this way also. Tiny TreesThe first time through, that's how we played until we caught on to the strategy that Tiny Trees can bring. The second time, it was more heated as points were on the line. We all loved the game!

The rules are well written and easy to learn how to play. In the sample game that we received the rule book was sized perfect for the box and was a great size to browse through. Colorful pictures, examples and diagrams helped to explain the game.

Now, along with good news comes the bad. Upon opening the box, we realized we had to hand cut multiple slits in each and every card to allow you to join the cards together. Some cards even got cut completely in half as well as have a slit added to them. This took us some time and seeing the dotted cut lines struck us as a little tacky and DIYish. This distracted from the beauty of the cards.

Tiny Trees RulesSpeaking of cards, we were disappointed to feel how thin and flimsy these cards are especially after realizing these would need to be joined with other cards and retain some strength to them. While playing, cards would slip, fold or even bend under the slightest of pressure. This made playing frustrating at times. The longevity of the cards is unknown but be aware that they may not last as long as you might have hoped (especially if younger hands get to them). Storage box also seems a little flimsy but that's a trade off on how much you're willing to spend.

Back to the good news - thicker cardboard and even laser cut game piece will be available in some sets. These would be AWESOME! We also think this is a must. With such a great game, theme, illustrations and game play, the card quality has to be the most important thing. We'd love to play this game with improved and thicker cards.

Tiny Trees is fun to play and brings a simple nature tone. Each game varies with tall trees, wide trees, skinny trees and short trees. Branches stretching out with flowers and bugs makes a very visually impressive spectacle. We thought this would also be a fun game if cards were merely laid flat on the ground - maybe another alternate version? We're glad to have Tiny Trees in our game collection.
