Orchard - 9 card solitaire game

Grow your orchard and harvest fruit by playing cards so that only trees with the same fruit overlap

Orchard is a quick solitaire card laying game that plays in under 10 minutes. The aim of the game is to harvest fruit (score points) by playing cards so that their fruit trees overlap other trees already in the orchard that bear the same fruit. The more trees you can overlap, the more fruit you'll pick.

Each game is played with 9 cards. Colored dice are used to keep track of your increasing harvest. 2 black cubes represent 'rotten' fruit. These allow you to lay a card that you wouldn't otherwise be able to - but come with a points forfeit and can hinder further card placement. So you must decide if and when to use them.

This Game Crafter edition comes with 18 different cards (UV coated, linen texture). Divide them into two 9 card decks. Once you've finished a game using one deck you can immediately play again using the other deck.

The cards, dice, cubes and rules booklet all fit neatly into the poker size tuck box.

Orchard 9 card solitaire game is colour blind friendly.
