Game Schooler Recommendation
Planet is a tactile masterpiece. In a game of Planet players aren't building with cards or putting hexagon tiles on game board, they are building their planet in 3-D with magnetic tiles! Zoology and ecology come together as players try to pair animals with habitats. Throw in some tactical thinking and spatial perception skills and you've got yourself a game with healthy competition and all of the hallmarks of a Game Schooler recommendation.
Game Overview

The spark of life is about to jump from your hands to spread out in the world. Deploy your mountain ranges and your deserts, spread out your oceans and your glaciers. Handle wisely your continents to form environments suitable for the apparition of animal life and maybe you'll manage to create the most densely populated planet!

In Planet, each player receives a planet core without anything on it. Each turn, players choose a tile with mountain/ice/forest/desert on it and place it on the planet. Then the player who fulfills the most conditions for the appearance of certain animals gains its card.
