Roots and Rhizomes


A planet has been discovered many light years from Earth – a likely candidate for colonization. But before the colonists arrive, they have sent ahead specially bred plants to take root, and hopefully to thrive. The plant breed that survives most successfully in the alien environment will not only begin to transform the planet to accept human lifeforms, but also will teach the colonial scientists and agronomists much about the challenges they will face. They will confront harsh environmental conditions and lurking predators as they grow! Each player, representing one of these aggressive plant species, must do their best to seek out sources of nutrition, to grow their plant life through roots and rhizomes, reaching out into the unexplored, and prepare a home for the new colony.
