Roberta Taylor Presents Octopus’ Garden
Edmonton board game designer Roberta Taylor will be running her award winning game Octopus’ Garden at GameAlot this year!
On Sunday September 7 from 10 A.M. to 11:30 A.M, Roberta will lead participants through her game that won Canadian Game Design Award in 2010. Hear stories about how the game was conceived and designed as you play. It is bound to be an interesting adventure!
UPDATE August 25, 2014: The game is now full, but Roberta will be around to answer questions.
“With hidden points that keep the ending in doubt and a high replay value, Octopus’ Garden is brief but meaty. There’s something here to like whether one is a veteran or a casual gamer.” – Fnordy, Gamegroup.org
In Octopus’ Garden, players take the role of Octopuses competing to create the most beautiful gardens. Attract colourful seahorses and clown fish, without losing pearl-producing oysters to the hungry sea stars!
Octopus’ Garden is a tile-laying game for 2 to 4 players. Players chose which plant and animal tiles to purchase from a central market and then decide how best to arrange them in their own garden. Careful planning is required to attract seahorses and clownfish, to protect pearl-producing oysters from the sea stars, and to avoid startling delicate feather worms.
Players: 2 – 4
Duration: 1 hour
