Finally I decided to begin entering my games to BGG.
(I have lot of them and possible some being published this year)
First one, I have started playtesting in family and gamegroups (and they liked it) is called Food Web (prototype name)
This is a cardgame for 2-4 players (I also working rules for 4-8 players version)

Players form food-chains and must eat food-cards from forest, including cards opponents want to eat and even cards opponents have played in forest.

What You think?

Looks interesting. Would you consider posting the rules & cards so that some of us Geeks can do a Print-and-Play and give it a try?

I teach at an outdoor science school and would love a game like this to teach kids about food chains...especially on rainy days.

If you're interested in such themes, another game that touched on food chains in ecosystems was Eon's old Quirks.

This is funny - I have been working on a very similar card game just recently! I even have "silhouette" pictures of the animals in my cards just like you have...

Anyway, it seems that even though there are some similarities how the cards are played on top of each other, the main game play in our games seems to be different. Phew!

I agree. This looks like it might be a great aid in teaching about eco-system concepts.

That's so cool, I love the idea.
Just a quick notice, it seems like you're working on the title, so my opinion is that it feels like it's a 'human food' game. I can't think of anything that makes it clear what it's about, 'cause I really like the subject.

Maybe 'Food web forest' or 'Food-chains?'
I found some other games (not in BGG but on the internet) with the name Food web.

Hmmmm... when I see "Food Chain" I immediately think of animals, and who eats whom. I guess that's because I'm more into science (with an particular love for all things biology) than popular culture...

So I think "Food Chain" is the perfect name for this game! LOL
