I am a big “outdoors” person.  I love nature, particularly scenic mountain vistas.  Every chance I get I hit the hiking trails, trekking deep into the wilderness to enjoy the quiet, serenity and beauty of nature.  It gives me peace and happiness, and recharges my batteries.  A bonus is when I spot an animal such as a deer, boar or bear, all of which are present in the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park, one of my main hiking venues.  Hiking is, indeed, one of my passions. So, I am naturally attracted to board games that use a nature theme.  While I appreciate animals used in a game — and there are hundreds of those — I really perk-up when a game uses both animals and nature.  Meadow by designer Klemens Kalicki incorporates both.

Schultz, who fled his home country, Austria, after Germany annexed it in 1938. The sitcom was, of course... ... See MoreSee Less
