Quietly garden together for the king

February 1, 2023 - 9:32pm

In Gardeners by Sit Down! Games players take on the role of gardeners who are tasked with arranging the garden of a fickle and capricious king. This is all done as a silent cooperative game. Gardeners is designed by Kasper Lapp (known for Magic Maze) with art by Anthony Moulins. The game support 1-4 players, aged 10+, and plays in 15 minutes.

Gardeners must cooperate to fulfill the demands of the king, even if those demands constantly change because he is forgetful. The game is played in real time, tracked by a sand timer, and in complete silence. Using the 36 tiles, players must arrange as many gardens as they can trying to follow different restrictions each round. Players try to score as many Constraint cards as they possibly can before the game ends.  

Gardeners is expected to release to retail in Q1 of 2023.
