FRUIT PICKING: Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet!
Posted: 25 May 2022, 10:27
Look at you up in that tree! Picking fruit on your island at sea!
Pack it up and send it out via Market Island to build your clout!
Remember! Seeds make fruits and fruits make sets! So pick your fruit with no regrets!
In Fruit Picking the players become fruit farmers who will plant and pick fruit and trade them with Market Island. The goal is to collect a set of market cards, claiming the title from one of the 4 districts of Market Island.
In more detail, during a turn a player will take all the seeds from one space on their fruit island board and then distribute them mancala-style in clockwise direction. The last space a player puts a seed onto becomes their Pick farm for this turn. They can then choose one of two options: to either get more seeds on their Pick farm, OR to trade the same fruit as on their Pick farm with the Market Island by paying seeds and receiving a market card. If a player collects all of the cards of one of the 4 sets of market cards the game ends.
