Winterhaven Woods: Fresh Snow

Beautiful Game

This game is simply beautiful! It's a fun and easy to learn game. We even adapted it to 2 players. It's quick as well, taking only about 20-30 minutes. The mechanics are simple, yet complex enough that it changes every time you play. I highly recommend it if you are just getting into card games as well as if you've played everything out there.

Great game

This game is quick to set up and get onto the table. Rules are easy to follow and understand for new gamers. Family enjoyed playing it and the art is very nice. Rated 8/10 on BoardGameGeek.

Stunning in looks and gameplay

This game plays as good as it looks and it looks simply stunning. It has simple rules but is absorbing and rewarding to play.

Dive into this gem!

Open Ocean is a great experience for every age group. It teaches drafting, spatial awareness and rewards players for being creative with their reef. I loved teaching it to a few friends and family already and it will be played often for a long time coming. Thanks Joel for this gem of a game: both the art and design are superb & come together to form a wonderful masterpiece to dive into. Thanks again!

Great family game

Overall great game. It's interesting gameplay for adults and simple enough rules for kids to follow. Only thing that could be improved is the rulebook is a little unclear at times.

Fun game in a small package

I had this arrive at the same time as Winterhaven Woods so played that first. I found Open Ocean to have a great mechanic to it and a fun theme. The artwork is a great addition to the game and really gives it a nice feel.

The thing that I felt let this down a little was the rules were a little confusing and I have had to watch a couple of youtube videos to clear up how to play rather than being able to play straigh out of the box. Maybe if the rulebook ever gets a reprint there could be more examples of how cards are played in the game situation.

That's a great idea Nick! I think I'll actually try a visual quick start guide as well.

I did not even play the game, sold it instead

I did not like the game. The artwork was very cute and lovely, but I could not get the game on to the table. Not for me sorry.

Sorry it wasn't for you Joonas! I totally get it, and appreciate you went through the trouble of finding it a new home!
