In Ancestree, players get to build their personal family trees! During each of three rounds, every player begins with a hand of 6 Ancestor tiles. They choose one and pass the remaining tiles to the next player. The chosen ancestor is then added to the family tree, connected by leaves or hearts. Once 5 Ancestor tiles have been added to the tree, the round ends. Players compare their family tree to those of their neighbours and gain points for the longest connected generations and for coin icons in their tree. After three rounds, players gain bonus points for all the marriages they have created. The player with the highest score wins!
From Calliope Games, the publishers of the popular Tsuro, and a really different theme for a board game that should appeal to all the genealogists out there. For ages 8+, 2-6 players, allow up to 40 minutes for a game.
