What in the Wild is a game system consisting of a deck of 120 cards and rules for 5 different games. Cards contain plant and animal species and the food, water, shelter, and space they need to survive. Much as with wildlife conservation in the real world, the games of What in the Wild focus on cooperation, collaboration, or side by side competition rather than head to head competition. Each game was designed with children and families in mind, and most have variants that let you ramp up the challenge as players get older and are looking for more strategic gameplay.
What in the Wild was designed to be easy enough to learn that it can be played with elementary school aged children and challenging enough to win to keep adults engaged.
Proceeds from the sale of What in the Wild are used to distribute copies of the game to educators across Michigan for use in their classrooms to complement the Michigan Department of Natural Resources' "Go Wild for Michigan's Wildlife" curriculum package.
To extend the life of your game, consider putting the cards in protective sleeves, also available via The Game Crafter: Poker Sleeve Pack (100)

"We love that each game has a bit of a hook in the rulebook, a story to get kids invested in the game." -The Family Gamers (podcast)
"Four of my children (ages 12,11, 8, and 6) and I played What in the Wild? for two-and-a-half hours straight and did not once say “do we have to play it again?” In one double-deck box, we found five different game plays for a variety of ages." -The Family Gamers (review)
"What in the Wild could easily become a family go-to because it plays quickly, which allows different people the opportunity to win, is easy to play some games as a team (especially if you have very young players), and travels well in a small box." -Meeple Mountain
