Every Little Thing

Can you make a mountain of connections?

Every Little Thing is a card game about species interactions. It contains 36 sturdy, full color cards that are easy to take with you anywhere and can be used in multiple ways with any number of participants. However you use it, Every Little Thing—developed by Graduate Student Outreach Fellow Meera Sethi—engages people in making biologically realistic connections between plants, animals, and climate in a mountain ecosystem, while encouraging lively discussion.
