Before I start playtesting it, I'd love to hear any thoughts or suggestions on playing Seed Dispersal as a trait rather than an event card.

The text would have to be changed to something like:

(Yellow Card? Or Green?) Seed Dispersal: Each time this species feeds from the Cliff, add one Plant Food to the Watering Hole.

It doesn't look very interesting. As an effect, it would, in principle benefit other players who will have an extra food in the Watering hole.

It wouldn't necessarily just benefit other players if it was played first.

OP:Would the card then discarded or remain as a permanent trait?

As seeds don't sprout right away, it could just add an extra food to the watering hole in the NEXT round.

Birds tend to eat seeds.

Some do. Others eat fruit and shit out the seeds they contain. ALong with a nice little helping of fertiliser to help them get a good start.

I was thinking of this as a permanent trait. If I try something like it at all. Not sure. I'll keep thinking about it.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

It seems very interesting to me. I'd enjoy trying it. Thematically it doesn't make sense that it would need to eat from the Cliff for the effect, but that's a minor point.

This idea has already been suggested right...



and it may very well be my favorite variant trait idea.

I'd love to hear about playtesting done on it.
