Everyone has a green thumb when playing Herbaceous Sprouts. Unwind while enjoying this beautiful and thoughtful game of collecting seeds, using tools, and growing sprouts. Don’t relax too long, though, or your friend might become the Head Gardener first!
Herbaceous Sprouts is a dice game that is played over a series of rounds. Become the Head Gardener by collecting herb and flower seeds and using your garden tools to plant in the community garden and scoring the most points. Each round, gardeners take turns collecting herb and flower seeds (represented by dice) which they place and save in their wheelbarrow, as well as tools (represented by cards) which they use to plant sprouts. Players can plant quickly for low point spots, or push their luck saving their seeds for premier spots in the garden. When the last Tool Cards are used, the game ends the final score is tallied, and the Head Gardener is named!
