Product description

Orchard is a quick solitaire 'tile laying' game that plays in under 10 minutes. The aim of the game is to harvest fruit (score points) by playing cards so that their fruit trees overlap other trees already in the orchard that bear the same fruit. The more trees you can overlap, the more fruit you'll pick.

In addition to the 15 custom dice representing your increasing harvest, there are 2 custom tokens representing 'rotten' fruit. These allow you to lay a card that you wouldn't otherwise be able to - but come with a points forfeit. So you must decide if and when to play them.

SHIPPING NOTE: Single copy orders of Orchard will ship directly from China. For multiple copy orders, we will do our best to ship from a local fulfillment center to avoid customs charges. If you're concerned, please contact us at orders@sideroomgames.com before ordering.

More info

Shuffle and divide the 18 cards into two 9 card decks, picking one and setting the other aside to play again later. Draw the top card and place it face up to form the start of your Orchard. Draw two cards into your hand.

Each turn you'll play a card from your hand to add to the Orchard, rotating it 90 or 180 degrees either way, overlapping one or more of the cards already in play.

You'll then place a die showing a '1' on each tree of your played card that overlaps a matching tree underneath it. If there is already a die underneath you'll rotate the die to increase the amount of fruit harvested ('1' to a '3', '3' to a '6', and, with custom dice, ‘6’ to a ’10’).
You're allowed to overlap non-matching trees twice per game by placing a Rotten Fruit cube on them. But doing so will lose you 3 points and you'll no longer be able to place new trees on top of that unfortunate tree.

You'll then draw another card bringing your hand back to two. Once 9 cards are on the board you'll tally up your score and determine how fruitful your harvest was. Was it Pal-tree, Forget-apple, or did you do Pretty Pear-fect (take a bough!)?
