really nice game with good mechanics and very well thought out theme - nice for any time of the year but especially when it gets colder outside - then you can feel the wilderness even more ;o)

Wilderness is not perfect, but I'm giving it a 10 because it has managed to combine just about everything I enjoy into one game. I would play it any time, happily. It has a lot of things you can adjust about it. It's not slick, but it is simply a fun game and really great for families. Also, when I ran into a problem the Fryx brothers were right there to answer it and my missing spinner part is being sent by them personally. Great game, great company!

Theme: My favorite themes revolve around survival and nature. There's even wild animals that can kill players!

Race: I love racing games, but can't seem to find one to suit my time needs. This one has adjustable play length. Perfect!

2-8 Players: This can play well even with 2 players. I'm not sure about 8, but the range of players is excellent.

Simple Rules: The rules are not convoluted. They're easy to remember and make sense with the theme.

Artwork: I'm sorry, but for those complaining about the artwork, it's really rather evocative of the atmosphere. In fact, with no knowledge of what people have said, my wife said, "I enjoy the art work. It helps me get into the game." The box is really beautiful and, hey, it's a great color of green.

I think it's great. And most importantly, my wife loves it!

Wilderness always offers blood, sweat and tears... and a lot of laughter. A fantastic game for large groups of gamers and non-gamers alike. It is practically always requested on my gaming nights.
To succeed, you have to make careful plans, but also be prepared for when the plans fail. Every game is different because of the modular game board, day cards and event cards. Some games most players die, while other times noone dies.
Great game!

Wilderness is challenging, social and fun. Player interaction is vital to this game, where the struggle to survive makes it one of the most exciting player experiences I have yet faced.

I love this game! Easy to learn and always great fun to play. I find this game very credible because the adventures and hardships in the game is what you could expect to happen in real life. I have played one of the very few handmade copies for years and was very happy when the printed version came and I could by a copy for myself.

I truly enjoy this game and have played it several times with many different friends and I keep recomending it.

It is generally easy to learn and to relate to. It is well thought through and balanced. The artwork is awesome and it looks very professional. Some people find it difficult to see the difference between "energy" and "exhaustion" but once learned the game is a breeze. It is very easy for everyone to create tactics and strategies since the needs and means for survival is within us all.

Wilderness is a survival/race gem, featuring solid game design, quick gameplay, and an engrossing atmosphere.

My girlfriend and I played our first game of Wilderness tonight and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Well, I did, right up until the point where I kicked the bucket. Starvation brought me to my knees four hexes from the finish line after getting lost trying to find food. Died a sad, lonely death in an unknown forest. Nearly cried. Girlfriend was ecstatic (can see Wilderness at the table often).

Our initial thoughts during unboxing were that whilst the artwork is fitting and adds to the theme, Wilderness would greatly benefit with a reskin, better components, a more logical rulebook, and nicer box cover artwork (currently a little bland). However, looks aren't everything, and after 30 mins of playtime I didn't really feel like this all mattered too much. The imagery is passable (certainly not an eyesore), and the gameplay more than makes up for any graphical shortcomings.

The unpredictable nature (pun intended) of Wilderness is a treat; the event cards, the sickness cards, the way the animals move and attack, the weather (damn you Weather Gods), and terrain/hidden map... It all makes for an incredibly thematic experience, one that I highly recommend if you can look past the production values.

I'm coming for you Village!

Gameplay: 9
Theme: 9
Production: 5.5

Overall: 8.75

Great game. Although it has player elimination we use house rules to fix this if someone dies. The artwork isn't the best I've seen, but it works! The game and the theme are like one. When you play you feel that you are in the wilderness fighting to survive! Totally Awesome!

Note: The rulebook says you can play 2-8 players and in theory you can. But in reality 6 players is the maximum you'll want to be.

Just bought this game out of curiosity and loving the theme. Will play it during my next game session and hope to have tons of enjoyment. It's simple and it only took me 30 minutes to finish reading the rule book and another 15 minutes to read it the second time. Now i am gear up to play it and see how it goes. It is not a cheap game but the game looks promising so far. My only grip is the meeple that is used to represent the characters and animals, which comes with stickers. Being a miniature fan, i prefer at least a nice miniature, judging from the price which is not cheap at all. Will post an update after our first play.

[Update: after one play, i find the game was simple and fun to learn and play. In three players game, two characters died half way through, mainly due to animal attack, and yes, they are nasty. Overall, a very enjoyable family and party game with some in build twist for surprises.

Second update: after two plays, the game seems to appeal to more mature players though not conclusive. My nieces who are age between 13-16 don't really enjoy the "cruelty" aspect of the game and not getting use to the "screw other players" mechanism. However, my third game with my usual gaming group was a blast! It packs with lots of twists especially from the event and weather cards and it is a fun game mainly as a filler before or in between heavy games to us.]

Nice game. Hard, it's no family game, dying with your pawn is not fun, but in a experienced group really good.
Sure, there is a lot of luck included, on the cards drawn, on the dice rolls, but that's life.
And outcome depends as well on, how hard the players are playing..., together, next or against...
