Description Edit | History

In Habitat, your goal is to attract the most complex and diverse animal life to your portion of the great North Woods. The most vibrant ecosystems are those that have organisms from all levels of life, from the producers up to the dominant predators. Therefore, to win a game of Habitat, a player must create a complete collection of cards ranked 1-8. Cards are stacked in order of rank, from lowest to highest, to form Food Chains. There may be multiple Food Chains and duplicate ranks, but only one card from each rank is needed to win. By contrast, an unsupported chain of cards carries the risk that creatures become hungry, or even begin to starve! When a player has collected the necessary cards and all animals are fed, that player declares a "Habitat" and wins the game.

1 Instrucciones de Habitat en Español
He aquí una traducción-maquetación de las normas de Habitat (2da edición) y una pantalla de inicio rápido. Las instrucciones están diseñadas para ser imprimidas a 2 caras, luego doblar las hojas e introducir la segunda hoja (ya doblada) dentro de la primera, de modo que quede un "librito". Espero que os sean de utilidad. Un saludo, .A.
