April Showers Bring May Flowers

It's time for nice weather and gardening time here in Oregon. In honor of that I'm writing about Hanamikoji. 21 Flowers is a 2 player card game with a small central board and two tiny player boards. There are 21 cards which represent 7 different flower factions. Some of the factions have varying numbers of cards numbers in the deck. The game is self-published by the designer(I believe) and distributed by Takamagahara.

The goal of the game is control 4 factions or to have 11 points at the end of a round. The point value ranges from 2 to 5. Faction control is determined by the player with the most cards representative of the faction in their tableau at the end of the round. In case of a tie, the position of the faction does not change either it remains neutral or in control of the player who controlled it the previous round.

Taiwan Boardgame Design

„Ok so recently TBD games have piqued my interest. I have picked up Jungle Rumble and Cat Tower from last year which I liked. .“

Lorna Dune

I also picked up Flip City which takes deck building to the next level. Design town is a short filler. You have a small deck of 9 starting cards. Your deck is face up so you know the first card you'll play. This is one of the neat things about the game. The cards are double sided with different buildings and functions on each side. You have to be careful not to accidentally flip the cards.
