Even when Wingspan won the Kennerspiel des Jahres award, I suspected that this was just the beginning of a new board game trend. And now, just under 3 years later, board games with a nature theme have established a firm place for themselves in the board game bubble. Cascadia from AEG joins the ranks as another board game in which we relax and enjoy nature while competing with others around the table. Randy Flynn’s first board game seems to use quite simple mechanisms and still trigger a certain replay appeal for enough players. You can find out why this is perhaps the case and how we liked the hike through Cascadia in our review of the nature board game.
