Gnomadic Gardeners

Gnomadic Gardeners

Design and art by Chris Scaffidi

Light-weight card game of garden gnomes for 1-2 players

1-2 players / Ages 14+ / 10-20 minutes

Cooperative / Head-to-Head / Solo

You are a head gardener at the community garden. You and your team of gnomes complete tasks to supply the local food bank. But free-spirited sprites frequently switch teams and help your opponent accumulate bliss (points) instead of you. You’ll outsmart your opponent as you carefully deploy your gnomes, strategically recruit animal assistants, and win the game.

If you enjoy Star Realms and Happy Little Dinosaurs, then you’ll probably enjoy the tactical challenge of Gnomadic Gardeners.
