    Spirits of the Forest Giveaway

    Spirits of the Forest Giveaway

    It’s beginning to get a bit festive here at Zatu Games! As we gear up for the Christmas period, we’ve decided to channel our inner Jolly old Saint Nicks, and say thanks to you lot for your continued support. So without further ado, it's time for a Christmas competition.

    It’s Giveaway Time!

    Get your clicking fingers ready because it’s time for a mega giveaway. Up for grabs is a signed copy of Spirits of the Forest, complete with playing cloth, limited edition poster and collector’s components. Phew! We’re giving you just under two weeks to enter; the competition will close on 19th December, with the hopes of posting it before Christmas.

    Tell me about Spirits of the Forest

    'Once an age, a mythic wind lifts the veil between the spirit world and ours. Whimsical seraphs, drawn to the vigor of an ancient forest, descend through clouds to once again take up their centennial game. You are one of these seraphs – a being of great power and curiosity. The life of the forest fascinates you, and you eagerly gather plant, animal, and sprite alike to add to your mystical menagerie. But beware, for you are not alone. Other beings just like yourself contest to collect the life of the forest as well!'

    Spirits of the Forest was a Kickstarter project by ThunderGryph games (the same guys and gals behind the highly anticipated Rolling Ranch and Hats), launched back in January 2018. The game reached its funding goal in less than 2 hours, and hasn’t stopped growing in popularity since! With nearly 8000 backers pledging over 350,000 euros, the game managed to unlock all Stretch goals. We here at Zatu have only great things to say about it.

    Let’s talk about the aim of the game a little:  it’s designed for up to 4 players, with each player representing one of the four elements that make up the forces of nature. The aim of the game is to collect the most spirit symbols, which are bound to different elements of nature. With us so far?

    Players take turns, during which they can draft up to two spirit tiles from the forest, collect favour tokens, and move, place or recover gemstones. At the end of the game, players count their favour tokens for ‘nature points’, and the one with the most nature points at the end of the game wins.

    In terms of how it looks, we can’t get enough. This abstract-style copy of the game comes in a beautiful box with magnetic closure (not to mention the sleeve is hand-signed by the artists!) and has clearly had a lot of love poured into the design. The additional poster and game cloth also look fantastic; it looks like the sort of game you could have laid out at all times on display, without making the place looking cluttered.

    Once you've got the hang of it, it's a very simple yet enjoyable game to try. It takes just five minutes to learn the concept of Spirits of the Forest and in our opinions, it’s just the sort of game you’ll want to play over and over again.

    Fast delivery and so obtained their family edition of Agricola. Actually it is better than the original as it has substance and is great as a Gateway game so anyone can play. All the actions are show on the board and card pieces plus the meeples, animals and foodstuffs are made of wood. A fun quality item.

    I've just bought my first game from Zatu and it was everything I could ask for. Fast delivery to Glasgow (two business days), the game I ordered in perfect condition. I'm always looking for alternatives to Amazon, and this seems to be a great one. Will definitely use it again.
