"fanaticus sine potestas"
The object of the game is to collect seeds that make good companion plants, plant the seeds in your plot, and try to take advantage of events that befall most every gardener. The seed cards are so pretty, and include plants that go in a kitchen garden, wild garden, or flower garden. The game board squares can direct you to gather a seed card, or pick up one of three wonderfully weird happenstance cards--"Acts of God," "Weather Report," or "Compost Heap" are the selections. If I keep telling you how delightful this is, will you get tired of hearing it? Because it really is...
Here's the corner of the gameboard on The Garden Game, and you can see the "Go" is a garden center! Since I probably won't be starting my own seeds this year, I will be spending some time playing the game plus heading to real garden centers...anyway, the spaces all the way around the board highlight everyday garden occurrences, and the progress of a garden around the year. Very sweet. And of course, charmingly drawn in a hippie-delirium style by our Lady Sarah.
