Gardeners is a simultaneous cooperative game played silently and in real time.
In less than 15 minutes, players must succeed in arranging as many gardens as possible, always composed of the same 36 tiles, but responding to different rules from one round to another.
Everyone must deduce the rules in force by observing where the tiles are placed and from where some are removed.
A game of Gardeners is made up of an indefinite number of rounds. Each is broken down into 5 phases, as follows:
- Draw a Constraint card,
- Start the sandtimer,
- Arrange the garden,
- Check the garden,
- Prepare for the next round.
During the game, players cannot communicate in any way about what to do or not to do to make the garden.
Will you satisfy the King’s whimsical desires?
