In Photosynthesis, colorful cardboard trees grow ever upward, searching for the sun. Each player tends to their plants from seedling to sapling to mighty oak or pine, soaking in sunlight as it moves around the board. The more sun your trees absorb, the more actions you get or the more points you can score. Deciding when and how to start a new cycle of growth in the forest is key to the game

Photosynthesis is beautiful inside and out. It is a wonder to behold on the table and its simple, elegant mechanisms provide hours of challenging fun.
