flosculatoryWelcome to *Fruit Picking*, farmer!
It’s time to get to work planting seeds in your farms so you can trade your fruit at the market!1archivecontrol_editmode_centercomment61dc7a9b0b4ca00
flosculatoryYour goal is to collect *Market Cards* to satisfy one of the following victory conditions:
*Family:* A pair and three of a kind
*Monopolist:* Four of a kind
*Lovers:* Three distinct pairs
*Merchant:* All five different fruit (at least one each)2market_board61dc7a9b0b4ca00
flosculatoryIf you need a reminder, you can always check the victory conditions by clicking the link in the top bar.3btnSetReference61dc7a9b0b4ca00btnSetReference 1
flosculatoryIt’s your turn! Each player has their own game board.
Your game board has a [red]*Storage*[/red] area in the middle holding your *Seeds*, different [blue]*Farms*[/blue] around it, and your [green]*Harvest House*[/green] at the top. 1player_fruit_island_8856099761dc7aa32f1eb00farm_card_88560997_0 3 farm_card_88560997_1 2 farm_card_88560997_2 2 farm_card_88560997_3 2 farm_card_88560997_4 2 farm_card_88560997_5 2 farm_card_88560997_6 2 farm_card_88560997_7 1
flosculatoryEach turn has two parts. First, *Planting*! You can take the Seeds on any of your Farms, and redistribute them by moving clockwise to adjacent Farms, dropping off one Seed at a time.
Click the *Banana Farm* now to plant its Seeds.2farm_card_88560997_361dc7aa32f1eb10farm_card_88560997_3 6
flosculatoryGood planting! Notice that you took the two Seeds from your Banana Farm and dropped one on the Pear Farm, and one on the Plum Farm.1farm_card_88560997_561dc7ab7c008900farm_card_88560997_4 1 farm_card_88560997_5 1
flosculatoryThe second part of your turn is an *Active Farm action*.
Since you dropped off your last Seed at the Plum Farm, it is now your *Active Farm*. 2farm_card_88560997_561dc7ab7c008900farm_card_88560997_5 1
flosculatoryRight now, you only have one possible action: *Water* your Active Farm. This adds Seeds from Storage to your Farm.
Each Farm’s icon shows you how many Seeds are added when you water it. The Plum Farm icon has *2* plums, so watering the Plum Farm will get you *2* seeds. You can also check the tooltip!3farm_card_88560997_561dc7ab7c008900farm_card_88560997_5 1
flosculatorySince watering was the only possible Active Farm action here, it happens automatically. That's the end of one turn!
Later on, we’ll see your other Active Farm action.4farm_card_88560997_561dc7ab7c0e8e00farm_card_88560997_5 1
flosculatoryNow, select the *Plum Farm* and plant its 3 Seeds.4farm_card_88560997_561dc7abda100a10farm_card_88560997_5 6
flosculatoryNow your Active Farm is the Raindrops farm. Again, there is only one possible Active Farm action: Watering.
2 Seeds move from the Storage to the Farm, matching the 2 raindrops on the Farm icon.1farm_card_88560997_161dc7ac4c25f100farm_card_88560997_1 1
flosculatoryClick on your *Strawberry Farm* to plant its Seed.1farm_card_88560997_661dc7acd0925110farm_card_88560997_6 6
flosculatoryLook, you ended up at your *Harvest House*! Whenever this happens, you get another turn and can choose another Farm to plant Seeds from.
[tip] This can happen multiple times in a row if you keep choosing Farms whose Seeds end up at the Harvest House.1farm_card_88560997_061dc7ad370baf00farm_card_88560997_0 3
flosculatoryClick the *Raindrops Farm* now to plant its 5 Seeds.
[tip] You always have to plant (redistribute) *all* of the Seeds from your chosen Farm.2farm_card_88560997_161dc7ad37173810farm_card_88560997_1 6
flosculatoryAgain, the only possible action is to water. You will gain 3 Seeds on your Strawberry Farm, matching the 3 strawberries on the Farm icon.
flosculatoryUh oh, your opponent got their first Market Card! Don't worry, you'll get there soon.
For now, click the *Strawberry Farm* to plant its Seeds.1farm_card_88560997_661dc7af96c1d410farm_card_88560997_6 6
flosculatoryAgain, you can only water right now. The Banana Farm gains 2 Seeds matching the 2 bananas.1farm_card_88560997_361dc7b4f6bba600farm_card_88560997_3 1
flosculatoryThroughout your turns, you’ve been dropping Seeds at your Harvest House. This turn, you're finally going to use those Seeds to collect a *Market Card*!
*Collecting a Market Card* is the other possible Active Farm action. To do this, there are two conditions:
1. You need enough Seeds in your Harvest House to trade for the Card.
2. The matching Farm must be your Active Farm.2archivecontrol_editmode_centercomment61dc7b62dab5600farm_card_88560997_0 3
flosculatoryEach Market Card has a price depending on the Fruit on the card plus its Market Premium (if applicable).
Each Fruit’s *base price* is equal to the number of fruit in the picture. You can also check the tooltip of the matching Farm!3market_board61dc7b62dab5600
flosculatoryThe *Market Premium* depends on the position of the Card. The sign above each Card shows if you need to trade an *additional* 3, 2, 1, or 0 Seeds to collect the Card.4market_premium61dc7b62dab5600market_premium 1
flosculatoryFor example, this Pineapple card will cost *2 Seeds* total from your Harvest House:
- a Pineapple has a base price of 1 Seed (matching the 1 pineapple on the Card icon)
- the Card's position indicates a Market Premium of 1 additional Seed (matching the sign above the Card)
It looks like you have enough Seeds in your Harvest House to collect it!5market_space_261dc7b62dab5600market_space_2 1
flosculatoryBut not so fast! Remember, you can only collect a Market Card as an Active Farm action. So if you want to collect the Pineapple Card, you need to make sure it’s your Active Farm!
Click the *Raindrops Farm* now to plant its Seed.6farm_card_88560997_161dc7b62dab5610farm_card_88560997_1 6
flosculatoryExcellent! You ended up at the Pineapple Farm, making it your Active Farm. You now have another Active Farm action option: Collect a Market Card.
[tip] If you didn't want to spend Seeds on this Card, you could choose to just water plants as normal.
For now, go ahead and *Collect a Market Card*!1btnCollectCard61dc7b7d4198a10btnCollectCard 1
flosculatoryGreat work! Notice that a few things happened:
1. The 2 Seeds needed to collect the Card moved from your Harvest House back to Storage.
2. All Seeds on the Pineapple Farm also returned to Storage.
3. You got the Pineapple Card in your hand!
4. A new Market Card was added to the leftmost stall of the Market, pushing other Cards over.
Note: As Card positions change, so do their Market Premiums!1overall_player_board_8856099761dc7b8353d9b00market_space_0 20 marketcard_88560997_1_1 19 farm_card_88560997_0 17 farm_card_88560997_2 18
flosculatoryThat's all! Continue planting and watering to keep collecting more Market Cards. Remember, your goal is to collect enough Market Cards to fulfill one of the four *Victory Conditions*. You can always access them by clicking on the link on the top status bar.
[tip] Note: there is also a Solo version of this game that is slightly different! Be sure to check it out! :)3archivecontrol_editmode_centercomment61dc7b835562a00
