About the Game

Orchard is a quick solitaire ’tile laying’ game that plays in under 10 minutes.

The aim of the game is to harvest fruit (score points) by playing cards so that their fruit trees overlap other trees already in the orchard that bear the same fruit.

The more trees you can overlap, the more fruit you’ll pick.

As well as the 9 double-sided cards, you’ll need 15 dice (of 3 colours) to keep track of your increasing harvest, and 2 cubes to represent ‘rotten’ fruit.

These allow you to lay a card that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to – but come with a points forfeit.

So you must decide if and when to play them.

What Are Print & Play Games

Print & Play (versions of) games are board games that are not published in a physical form.

Instead, the rules and (most) components are available in a digital format, and players are expected to print them off and assemble them themselves.

Often, some additional, non-printable components are required as well like dice or player pieces but in most cases, even these components can be created using cardboard and paper elements.
