Thanks to playing cards with many extras, the game remains exciting until the end and the outcome is open. Play as a team or all against each other. Your opponents can steal trees or the game can switch directions just before the goal. If you are not lucky at cards, your ELI Tree will go into tree sleep.

ELI Tree is a board game for kids AND adults
2-5 players can participate and a round lasts just over half an hour, depending on the skill of the players and depending on the luck of the cards. With four players it makes sense to play in two teams against each other, while with 2, 3 or 5 players everyone plays against everyone else. The unique idea of ??ELI Tree is that each player can move any tree across the field. The outcome of the game can suddenly and unexpectedly take a completely different turn. In addition, all ELI trees have the same color.
Thanks to the 40 event cards, the course of the game remains varied and exciting
Whether you're chasing the next tree, stealing a tree, changing directions, or using a joker. Caution is still required, because maybe ELI will also fall into a deep tree sleep and have to sit out. But don't worry, since any player can move any tree across the board, there's no deadlock. The number cards (those playing cards that are not event cards) indicate how many spaces an ELI can move on the playing field at a time. The aim of the game is to bring four ELI trees to safety in your own target zone.
