From the creators of Campy Creatures, Caper, Space Park, and Control comes PARKS! PARKS is a celebration of the US National Parks created in partnership with the Fifty-Nine Parks Print Series. If you love the National Parks, you will love this board game! 

In PARKS, players will take on the role of two hikers as they trek different trails across four seasons. 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, forests, and wildlife. 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. Welcome to PARKS!

The national parks exist to preserve many wonders of nature, but they also harbor some of the darkest skies and clearest views of the stars. This is the reason you might hear the saying “Half the Park is after Dark.” It is the inspiration for PARKS Expansion: Nightfall.

Nightfall offers a whole new year of hiking for PARKS lovers to explore. It includes 24 new Park cards that reward instant actions when visited, a new Year deck along with ways to obtain new Year Cards while hiking, plus the introduction of Camping, which grants powerful once per season actions to those hikers that do not dally on the trail.
