In Sequoia you are trying to grow the tallest trees in 11 different forests. After your 10 turns, if you have the tallest tree, then you get the victory points from that forest. Second place gets a small consolation prize.
Each turn, you get to grow two of your trees. Which trees you choose will determine if you win or lose. Do you keep fighting in a forest with competition, or start growing your tree somewhere else? You'll have to wrestle with the dice to grow the tree you want.
Sequoia is a game of choosing your battles.
The dice will always give you choices, but they will be hard choices.
Ties in each forest are decided by extra tie-breaker rounds that can lead to epic finishes.
