In the tile-laying game Ancestree, players get to build their personal Family Game trees! During each of three rounds, every player begins with a hand of six ancestor tiles. They choose one and pass the remaining tiles to the next player. The chosen ancestor is then added to the Family Game tree, connected by leaves or hearts. Once five ancestor tiles have been added to the tree, the round ends. Players compare their Family Game tree to those of their neighbors and gain points for the longest connected generations and for coin icons in their tree.
