This game is one where you propagate succulent cuttings in an attempt to make the most beautiful succulent garden. In this abstract, set collection game, you collect cuttings and water crystals from gardens and use them to complete projects. Completing projects grants different benefits, useful in boosting your score.
We picked this game up mainly for it’s theme, my daughter has grown to enjoy propagating succulents and we thought it may be a game she’d enjoy playing. The 3 of us had our second play through of Succulent this morning. Of course my daughter crushed us, nearly doubling my score. This game can be frustrating since the available spaces and projects can change quickly, leaving you feeling you do not have any options. At the same time, you don’t always know how the end game scoring is going to turn out.
The Food….Dirt Cups
We continued playing in the dirt with some Dirt Cup dessert. Easy to make, as long as you plan ahead (they really need a day to set up). With cheesecake pudding and Oreo cookie layers with some gummy worms added for good measure. The result is a fun dessert that was always a hit when my daughter was younger.
