Description: YOUR GARDEN AWAITS
Spend the afternoon in your Floriferous garden. Relax while enjoying this elegant game of strolling through your garden and collecting flowers. Find joy in the abundance of nature.
Find the most joy by collecting flowers and pairing them with abundance, desire, and mastery cards.
Floriferous is played over 3 days, which are divided into 5 turns (or 4 turns for 5 players). Each turn, a player moves one step through the garden. After each move, the player picks up a flower or desire card. After 3 days, players sum their scores for their desires, mastery, and points earned during the game. The player with the most points wins.
FLOWER CARDS & BUGS
There are 5 Types of Flowers in Floriferous: Tulip, Poppy, Lily, Daisy, and Mum each of which comes in 5 Colors: Yellow, White, Pink, Orange, Purple. Many flower cards also have a bug on them: Butterfly, Ladybug, Bee, Moth, and Beetle. These 3 card aspects (flower type, color, and specific bug) are used for scoring Desire, Abundance, and Mastery cards.
Desire cards appear within the garden and are worth points at the end of the game based on the players collection of Flower Cards. They award points based on the specific requirements on the card.
Abundance cards appear at the bottom of the garden and are worth points at the end of the game based on the players collection of Flower Cards. The more matching aspects of the arrangement you have, the more they are worth.
Sculpture cards appear within the garden and are worth points at the end of the game depending on who has collected the most sculptures.
FACE DOWN CARDS
These cards are picked up like any other in the garden, the player simply doesn’t know what they are until chosen.
Stones are within the garden and are collected when the card they are sitting on is taken. Every 2 stones is worth one point at the end of the game (rounding down) and they may help you earn a cup of tea.
THE CUP OF TEA
The cup of tea is awarded at the end to the player who has collected the most stones.
Mastery cards appear at the top of the garden. These cards are not collected but are scored at the end of each day based on the players collection of Flower Cards. Players compete to score mastery cards first.
