Description:

PARKS is a celebration of our National Parks featuring illustrious art from Fifty-Nine Parks.

In PARKS, players will take on the role of two hikers as they trek through different trails across four seasons of the year. While on the trail, these hikers will take actions and collect memories of the places your hikers visit.

These memories are represented by various resource tokens like mountains and forests. Collecting these memories in sets will allow players to trade them in to visit a National Park at the end of each hike.

Each trail represents one season of the year, and each season, the trails will change and grow steadily longer. The trails, represented by tiles, get shuffled in between each season and laid out anew for the next round.

Resources can be tough to come by especially when someone is at the place you're trying to reach!

Campfires allow you to share a space and time with other hikers. Canteens and Gear can also be used to improve your access to resources through the game. It'll be tough to manage building up your engine versus spending resources on parks, but we bet you're up to the challenge. Welcome to PARKS!

Object of the Game

Players take on the roles of two Hikers as they trek across different Trails during the four Seasons of a Year.

Each Trail represents a different Season, and as each Season passes, the Trails change and grow steadily longer. …



The solo adventure puts you on the Trail alongside Park Rangers who move alongside you as they take care of the Trail.

Enjoy your hike, but don't take too long as Events are triggered when Rangers collect enough tokens from the Weather. The goal remains the same-score as many points as possible through your Parks, Year, Photos, and .

Setup

Setup to Solo Mode remains the same with these changes below:

  • After shuffling the GEAR deck, place it onto its slot on the board and do not reveal any Gear cards. …



Q: Can I visit a site without taking its action?

No. To visit a Site, you must be able to take its action. For example, if you don't have two tokens to exchange, then you cannot visit the Lodge.

Q: Can I use weather towards a trail site's action?

Yes. Weather tokens on a Site are collected immediately, so they can be used towards the Trail Site's action, such as the River or Lodge.

Q: What happens if we run out of tokens?

If there is no longer a type of token in the supply, then the Site the token is linked to cannot be visited as its action cannot be taken. Once those tokens are re- turned to the supply, the Site becomes available again. …
