    Play as the:

    The Moles - “The Great Underground Duchy” 

    An ancient kingdom ascending to the surface. The Moles like the Cats, Birds, and Lizards will be about putting large amounts of Warriors on the map, while controlling clearings.

    For generations the Duchy extended its reach through the caverns below the great woods. Now, newly elected lords in the Duchy's Parliament have raised a call to explore the lands above. Armies have been mustered and new tunnels prepared for the coming struggle. The creatures of the woods will soon learn to fear the great power beneath their feet.

    The Crows - "The Corvid Conspiracy"

    Espionage masters, they will have a smaller presence on the board. They score points by manipulating the other player's hands.

    The Corvid Conspiracy ransoms the hands of their opponents by filling them with their agents. Using these agents, the Corvids can trigger insidious plots and advance their own agenda. But as each plot comes to fruition, their hideout must move to a different forest in the Woodland before their great conspiracy is unmasked!   

     

    Play on two new maps:

    The Mountain Pass Map – Trek across outcroppings, clear blocked routes, and hold the mountain pass to show you are an effective leader. Battle for control of a couple of mountain passes. The struggle for dominance continues in the great mountains to the northeast of the Woodland. Fight for control of the narrow mountain pass or dig new tunnels to the great mountain caverns.   

    The Lakeside Map – Whisk yourself across the map by travelling on the ferry, meeting new friends and allies along the way. Battle around a lake. The conflict moves west to the homeland of the Riverfolk! Battle for control over the great lake by skillfully managing the ancient riverboat. Shore up your coastal clearings or explore the hinterland in the hills beyond.
