Spring has sprung in NYC and what better way to celebrate than by enjoying a beautiful garden. Now I know what a lot of you may be thinking, but Jacqueline, what about allergies? Not to worry, for anyone looking to appreciate flowers while still being able to breathe this spring, I have just the game for you! Floriferous will get your flower fix indoors. Floriferous is the newest game from Pencil First Games, the makers of Herbaceous, and will be coming to Kickstarter in Mid-March 2021.

In this uber relaxing game set collection game, players will stroll their cardboard gardens and collect flowers, capture bugs, enjoy statues and try to stop a pesky crow from taking all the stones.

Floriferous Game setup


  1. Shuffle the garden cards and layout your garden according to the player count (2, 3, or 4 rows matching the player count with 5 cards per row). In the 1st row, the 2nd and the 4th cards should be face down, all other cards will be face up. Put the remaining garden cards to the side.

  2. Shuffle the desire cards and layout 5 underneath the garden (one under each column) essentially adding another row to your garden. Place the remaining desire cards to the side.

  3. Place stones on the garden cards according to your player count setup.
