In Gartenbau, players select and place tiles in a tableau to meet the growing requirements of drafted flower tiles. A dual track rondel combined with three layers of tile laying are at the core of this beautiful game.
Take on the role of a gardener, seeking to wield your green thumb to grow a well-balanced, mature garden before the growing season ends.
You will sow seeds and grow a variety of plants to fill out your garden. In addition, if you meet the complex growing condition of your Flowers, you'll earn Prestige Points for your horticultural achievements.
The player who earns the most prestige at the end of the game is crowned The Master Gardener.
Gartenbau is set in the late 19th century and all of the artwork used in this game is vintage from that era. This game is dedicated to all of the unknown artists who created wonderful works for various seed and flower catalogs during that period, leaving their mark on a beautiful era for garden art.
