Combines dice rolling, tile laying, & set collection. Players plant seed tiles in a shared garden & water & harvest them for points.
Garden Dice is a family strategy game that combines dice rolling, tile laying, and set collection. The game board depicts a garden as a 6x6 grid in which seed and vegetable tiles are placed using dice rolls as coordinates. Players take turns using the same dice to plant, water, and harvest five different types of vegetables with differing point values, from the lowly squash to the mighty eggplant. A chaining mechanism allows players to water or harvest multiple tiles, allowing them to build off each other. Bird and rabbit tiles can be used to eat other players' seeds and veggies. Other special tiles allow players to modify dice rolls or protect their seeds. Additional points are awarded at the end of the game for collecting sets. The player with the most points when the last tile is taken wins. Winner of the GAMES Magazine 2014 Game of the Year award.
