About Botanists

In this game, you use an innovative system that combines card play with your pawns movement on the market to determine what flowers you will obtain each turn. Of these flowers, only one will have a dedicated space, so the rest will have to go onto your marginal land, a less fertile plot where flowers don’t last too long. To prevent these flowers from withering, you will be fulfilling orders. This way, you will not only avoid losing points for withered flowers, you will also gain bonus points for each fulfilled order.

For maximum score each score phase, you will have a perfect run on your plots of land and be left with no excess flowers on your marginal land. This, however, is a lot harder than it might sound…
