Picked up Photosynthesis for a steal on a clearance rack. Like $15 or so. No doubt they will be on other clearance sales near you.
Now, I don’t care if I ever play the game, it was purchased solely to be deconstructed into my table kit.
Check out what $15 got me:
56 easily collapsible sturdy cardboard trees in three sizes and four varieties.
24 tokens with 1-4 leaves on the back and numbers 12-22 on the front. Suitable for displaying a Target, or doing a “Bag Draw” mechanic for Target in Scene 1-2-3 (and 4 if you dare!)
Big Bright yellow tokens 1-4 suitable for Timer display /Bag Draw.
24 foraging outcome tokens (berries, flowers, acorns, pine cones) maybe for Blood & Snow?
4 bright yellow pips of sunlight, maybe suitable for tracking Torches in a dungeon?
A Big Tree Token, suitable for plopping on a map or maybe covering up another token till the right time…
And then there’s the board itself:
Not a bad map for tactical battle in the woods. Or for the Village Green with some Index Card shops placed around it.
Overall, this was a great deal for 15$ clearance. But I think you can still find it at $25 on the shelves at Barnes and Noble or Books A Million, and for that many quality trees and tokens, it’s still a pretty good deal.
