EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

This game is beautifully designed with high quality elements. Each turn involves basic worker placement activities. Move your action pieces, get resources, convert those resources, all while building a wall around your plant cell in an effort to turn your sources into points. Cards are the main way to get points as well as building the cell wall. Winning resources help the player to buy other resources for wall building. Real science is in play as you use different cell components according to the actual chemical formulas. When the cell wall is completed, whoever has the most health points is the winner. There's a game manual and a teaching manual to learn all about photosynthesis.
