About this deal

Now, I should mention that when I solo a game, the fewer bits and bobs to organise, shuffle, lay out, count out, and generally arrange the better in my book! After all, when stealing moments to play games alone, I don’t want to be wasting it organising! As such, a game with a pad and 2 dice is pretty much bang on for a sneaky solo session! Do you ever come across a game that has flown under the radar and there’s no obvious reason why? Well I can think of one reason why Rustling Leaves may have missed many tables, but only one. Under its original title “ Blätterrauschen”, it might just have been too complicated for us non-German speaking gamers to request! If there is a sudden, loud noise in a place that was quiet, we may say that the noise shatters or breaks the silence: A sharp burst of gunfire shattered the silence. At this point I just want to mention how everything ties in so well with the seasonal settings – the icons, how they score…..it’s all connected and very cool!

Finally, you have one joker – which you can use at any point in the game – that changes one of the dice rolled. Keep going until you choose to stop or you get six missed die markers. When you’re done, tally your scores and the highest score wins! Each player takes a map of a season. The dice are rolled. The numbers give you one of the lengths of a rectangle (field) you will draw on your map. For example, a green 2 and a yellow 3 gives you a 2×3 field. In the opening round, you place your field so that one of the squares contained within is one of the six starting boxes. From the second turn onwards, you must have at least one square connected with a previously drawn field. But with the name Rustling Leaves, there’s definitely no excuse not to sing like a bird about this light, crunchy little puzzly roll and write! Each player takes a map of a season. The dice are rolled. The numbers give you one of the lengths of a rectangle (field) you will draw on your map. For example, a green 2 and a yellow 3 gives you a 2x3 field. In the opening round, you place your field so that one of the squares contained within is one of the six starting boxes. From the second turn onwards, you must have at least one square connected with a previously drawn field.The game is very simple. 2 dice are thrown. The numbers on the dice determine the size of the fields to be marked. Now select a forest symbol to be included in the scoring and the next move is made. Thanks to the cleverly designed game plans and the matching scoring rules, this simple principle always results in new exciting decisions. Most of the time, you have the choice between safe points and a riskier variant, which allows you to score significantly more points, but only if there are still suitable rolls afterwards. Here you have to decide wisely! Rustling leaves has you playing one of four seasons and encircling various icons on your sheet to try and maximise your score. Be careful though as every shape has to be joined to the last and especially at the end of the game, you could possibly shoot yourself in the foot by not being able to place a required shape. It’s your choice when to stop, do you carry on? Or do you gamble for a few more tasty points? The Set-Up

Want to know how to add autumn colour to your garden? Here, we explore the best autumn trees for vibrant leaves and rich autumnal shades. Your sheet, as with all games of this ilk does have a way to change die faces. You have one joker per game which allows you to change the number of pips on the green die. Having only one joker and losing points for not being able to place your enclosures is tense. This combined with the fact you choose when to stop creates this little ecosystem of being concise and planning efficiently. You could come up with unlimited creative descriptions for the sounds of rustling in a forest. I'm sure your readers would actually prefer to discover the sound instead of being told so straightforwardly and blandly what it is. Of course there is the time for that but painting a picture is almost always more interesting and beautiful.You don't have to only use synonyms for this, you can use unique metaphors or creative descriptions to get your point across. You can incite thought without directly describing it. For example, this can suggest the sound of leaves: Due to the 4 game plans, 4 different challenges await you in one app. Because even though the very simple basic principle is the same in all 4 game plans, the different ways of awarding points always ensure an individual gaming experience. Sometimes I like to just sit down, throw some dice and draw some stuff. It has been known I do love these roll’n’write or flip’n’fill types of games. Rustling Leaves from Kosmos and Paulo Moriis a quaint and beautiful game, enjoyable by yourself or with a few like-minded friends. It is very light but perfect for a game night opener or a wind-down game at the end of a hectic soirée.
