Phylo the trading card game (Coral Reef Deck) celebrates ecosystems in all their awesomeness. It showcases the many wonderful, weird, and wacky species that live on our planet Earth.
In general, coral reef ecosystems consist of plankton living together with corals, with Zooxanthellae playing an especially important role in warmer coral ecosystems. From this basic relationship, many other organisms can also take part in the ecosystem, including algae, fish, crustacea, and sharks. With this game, the purpose is to try and place as many of your species cards on the table, all the while making sure your species cards have something to sustain (feed) them. As well, there are EVENT cards, which can change things up a bit. When these are played, you may find that many of your food chains are disrupted, which may mean the loss of cards and therefore loss of points. Consequently, the Phylo game is all about building these chains, and also seeing how different things can affect them.
The PHYLO Ecosystem Game allows players to use their PHYLO cards to build food chains, create stable ecosystems, sabotage opponents’ ecosystems, and rack up points in the process.
This set can either be used as an expansion to the base deck or as a stand alone deck. It contains the rules and 54 cards for you to print out and use in your classroom. I suggest you use card stock for the best results.
