In this episode, I have another family board game recommendation: Herbaceous.
Herbaceous was designed by Steve Finn and published in 2017 by Pencil First Games. The game’s art is by the amazing Beth Sobel. Sobel’s art makes Herbaceous is one of the prettiest games we own. Players take on the roles of herb collectors, growing and potting herbs like tarragon, rosemary, sage, and lavender. Sobel’s illustrations of these herbs are lovely, and you can’t help but want to collect them as you play this relaxing, 20-minute game.
Herbaceous is a great family game, but you don’t have to take my word for it. In this episode, we’re joined by the podcast’s gardening correspondents, ages 6 and 9, for some thoughts on Herbaceous.
Herbaceous: Pocket Edition, now on Kickstarter.
