In this game for 2 to 5 park managers, you expand your park's landscape and add animals, watchtowers, extra entrances and tour spots. Try to construct your park the best for animals and visitors.
The difference to Habitats 1st edition:
The ceramic player "pawns" will become wooden player meeples (placed flat in the game). As it was planned for the first printrun, but there was no time to produce that last year.
The German rulebook included in the game box.

Some game components have (English) words on it, but that text isn't needed to play the game.
In this small example (picture from the rulebook) you see 3 animal tiles. The Salamander, Kingfisher and Impala.The victory points are written in yellow (2/2/3 vp). The needed habitats are shown by the icons above the animal pictures. The Salamander lives in water (its own tile) and needs 2 forest tiles which is shown by 2 leaf icons on its tile. Those 2 forest tiles must be in 1 or more adjacent areas. An area is 1 tile or a group of equal landscape tiles. The Salamander has an adjacent forest area of 2 tiles, so its habitat requirements are fulfilled. The Kingfisher has its needs (water, see drop icon) too. The Impala is missing 3 grassland (see grass icons). Therefore the Impala's victory points are placed upside down yet, to keep scores clear for the end calculation.
With 5 players, parks have a size like in this picture. With 4, 3 or 2 players, the parks are resp. 1, 2 and 3 tiles bigger.
Video Review about Habitats 1st Edition
Instead of the ceramic animal "pawns" in this video, the new edition will have wooden player meeples.
The production number will be only 500 or 20% more than the number of backed games. Joining this crowdfund saves you money on the cost of the game and for delivery. With pick-up at the Essen-fair, you save EUR 3,- (22,- now instead of 25,- there).
-- 'Get the Game!'
Includes: 1x *HABITATS* 2nd edition
Add EUR 22.00 per extra game. (No extra delivery costs!)
For example, 3 Habitats to Italy makes EUR 22 + 22 + 22 + 11 (delivery) = EUR 77.
Select 'Antarctica' in case of picking up at the Spiel-fair in Essen (Germany). Then the delivery costs are EUR 0.00.
At the 'Spiel'-fair, without joining at Kickstarter, the price is 25,- instead of 22,-.
-- 'Habitats & Powerships' (maximum 50 backers)
Includes: 1x *HABITATS* 2nd edition + 1x Powerships
Add EUR 22.00 per extra Habitats. (No extra delivery costs!)

To the backers of the passed Powerships crowdfund: Your Powerships game will get sent separate from this project's deliveries. (Sending both games together would not change your total delivery costs significantly, because the combined games would weight over 2kg.)
You can let us pack other Cwali-games in your rewards package. No extra delivery costs! Just raise your pledge and message me which games you add.

Risks and challenges
In past years as author & publisher, challenges have always occurred and have always been overcome.
The project is well prepared for a quick production process after the funding campaign ends.
Cost calculations were carefully made, so that hopefully many backers join.
