Evergreen has won the Graf Ludo 2023 this year!
We are all over the place! After the board game by Hjalmar Hach and with illustration by Wenyi Geng made it to the last three nominated games, it could now also win the coveted Spielgrafikreis.
The vision of the game is: we create a fertile evergreen world. True, the trees in it will not be as huge as the one on the strikingly designed box. But the size of the trees has an important role in the game.
How much shadow do they cast when the sun is high in summer, where does the shadow fall in winter? Each player has well-tempered color areas on the board that radiate warmth, heat, coolness or icy coldness. With delicate strokes Wenyi Geng shows a sensitive nature in its dependence on the sun.
At the same time, she manages to illustrate in a poetically detailed, yet relaxed and restrained manner. The game is guided by subtle symbols that strengthen the impression of fragility. In interaction with the haptically prompting material, the graphics support the idea of acting well-considered and carefully so that one’s own planet can green.
