A quote taken from the Ampersand Press website:

"As a camp instructor at Tucson Botanical Gardens, I have used Onto the Desert for the past two years to illustrate the cycle of life in the Sonoran Desert.  First, I presented the 2 player rules and allowed the students to play in pairs.  Later we would play as a class.  In each camp, I have been astounded to see how the kids come to form their own rules - putting limits on how many times certain cards can be used and establishing different scoring systems.  All of these alternatives are listed in the game's instructions, but the students arrive at them independently.  I just love how what starts as a lesson on ecology evolves into a depiction of teamwork and problem solving.  The best part is that after I introduce the game, the campers ALWAYS ask for it the next day."
