Keystone: North America

We are excited to bring to your table this beautiful, easy to learn, brain burning strategy game designed by Jeffrey Joyce and Isaac Vega. Keystone: North America seeks to share the passion for wildlife and conservation biology held by its co-designer Jeffrey Joyce. His belief in teaching conservation through play and a love of designing games comes through in this clever game of animal habitat building. 
 

Explore the beauty of North America's Wildlife!

In Keystone: North America, you and your friends will take on the role of biologists and work to build an interconnected ecosystem through the careful placement of cards. Use skills, introduce important Keystone animals, and perform wildlife research to maximize your points.

Introduce important species into your ecosystem

Every North American species has specific habitats where they thrive. When introducing a species to your player board, you'll want to chain these habitats, horizontally or vertically, with other species that share the same habitat. This will create healthier ecosystems which are worth more points when scoring.

Complete Secret Objectives to increase your score

Secret Objectives have seasonal patterns that can add big points to your score at the end of the game. Finding and placing species cards with the required seasons won't be easy, but the extra points you gain often pay off!

Wild cards help to bridge the gaps within your ecosystem
