Back when I was a kid, my family would do our own canning and preserving. We'd make our own grape jelly and applesauce from fruit we'd picked ourselves. We'd store it in the basement and have that great-tasting stuff all year 'round. And trying to create the best jams and jellies is your goal in Frutticola, a new card game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
In the '50s, a small town in the US was famous for its fruit-bearing trees. Its local companies were competing amongst each other, producing jams that kept getting tastier, which in turn made the town get more and more famous. Every year, after the Christmas party, the local entrepreneurs compared their profits: will you be the best this year?
In Frutticola the players lead small family businesses specialized in growing and selling fruits and jams, trying to become the richest in town by the end of the year! With only a few Workers and Farmers, you will have to choose when to send them in the fields, or to buy pesticides, fertilizers, and other items, and when to produce jams and sell them at the market. Who will prove to be the best?
The campaign is more than 2x funded with 9 days left to go.
