This isn’t your garden-variety card game! A bumper-crop of prickly produce has overtaken your patch, and there’s only one choice: abandon all artichokes! Prune your deck by harvesting fresh vegetables, each with a special power that lets you swap, discard, or compost cards. You’ll need luck, strategy, and a green thumb to grow a winning hand!

"This game is a fantastic introduction to deck-building games and also a ton of fun both in theme and practice. In the games you're trying to harvest different vegetables from the center row that can then be played and potentially added to your deck. Some of the cards will allow you to compost your artichokes, which then pares down your deck more and more, increasing the likelihood that the next time you refill your hand you won't draw any artichokes (the ultimate win condition for the game). Many of the vegetables you can harvest allow you to attack other player's decks or hands and potentially even steal cards from them for your deck. There is randomness, but like any good deck-builder, properly curating your deck increases your odds of getting what you need when you need it significantly. I thoroughly recommend this game as a great family choice, and also the art is really cute (a plus in my book).
Who is this for? Anyone looking for a family-friendly intro deck-builder whose family and/or friends may not be ready for the likes of Dominion."
