Forest shuffle - a smart card game for nature lovers:

Experience the miracles of the forest in this clever card game. In Forest Shuffle, 2-5 players compete in gathering the most valuable trees and attract species, thus creating an ecological balanced habitat for flora and fauna.

Life is bustling in the local forest:

Animals scurry around the clearings looking for edible plants and insects. Some prefer the dense treetops, others the lush undergrowth and only feel comfortable in the shelter of the trees.

It all starts with a single tree: Each turn you play cards from your hand. You want to gather more trees in your very own forest. To help attract wildlife, you try to combine plants and animals for extra points or bonus actions. Consider the different preferences of these creatures: Some animals feel only comfortable in the presence of their fellow species, others prefer certain tree types to live in.

This card game for 2-5 players comes with:

* simple rules
* beautiful illustrations
* multifunctional playing cards
* manufactured eco friendly: FSC cetified material

Bonus: This family friendly card game works with all player counts! Explore the growth of your forests in a nice game with 3-5 players. Fight a tight 2 player 'battle' to attract the most prestigous species for your very own forest.

Are you able to establish an ideal balance and create the most beautiful forest?

Did you change your logo? What's the reason behind Lookout Green Line?

If you do know Lookout, you know we rely on sustainable raw materials in production and primarily use cardboard, paper, and wooden components, as well as water-soluble inks that meet the highest standards. Since 2022, our cards are wrapped with paper instead of cellophan. With Forest Shuffle, Lookout Game is going one step further: This fine card game is the first in a series of games, that do not use any plastic at all, not even shrink wrap. Lookout games sporting the Greenline label are produced on FSC Certified paper and the box enclosure will be sealed with a small sticky paper.

The rulebook refers to an appendix - where can I find it?

Card effects and bonuses are explained with either icons or short descriptions. You can find an overview of all symbols on the last page of the rulebook. If you would like a more detailed explanation, consult the REFERENCE CARDS or the DIGITAL APPENDIX - which is available for download on this page. As you get familiar with the icons after just a few games, we oppted for a digital appendix in favor of the environment.

What is the purpose of the Cave card?

Some cards (namely Bear and Raccoon) place cards under your Cave card. Only those cards can place cards there; you may not simply do so without using their effect. Each card under your Cave is worth 1 point at the end of the game.
