Pencil First Announces their next beautiful game, Delicious

July 27, 2022 - 3:40pm

Pencil First Games has announced their next card game, Delicious, from the same team that brought the hit games Floriferous and Herbaceous. It is designed by Steve Finn and Eduardo Baraf and has artwork from Clementine Campardou

In Delicious, players are planting, growing, picking, and pairing fruits and vegetables in various containers such as wheelbarrows, boots, and suitcases. This is a flip-and-write game, where players fill in their garden sheets simultaneously based on cards and tokens that are revealed to the group. You score points based on the combinations of fruits and vegetables you go in different parts of your player sheets. 

Delicious is for 1-100 players (you know, as long as you have enough sheets), ages 14+, and 20-30 minutes. Pencil First Games is releasing Delicious to retail in August/September 2022. You can preorder the game through their website
