Each turn, you’ll draw from a deck a playing cards and interpret card values to determine the progress made on your farm over the course of a single season. With that progress in mind, you’ll then chronicle your revitalization efforts by writing a letter to a loved one. Optional mechanics are also included that allow you to alter your deck by trading or competing at local festivals. Removing cards will make certain kinds of progress more likely, and festivals can be roleplayed alone or with fellow players.
To play Grandpa’s Farm, you’ll need:
• One of more players
• One standard deck of playing cards per player
• Writing materials (paper and writing utensils)
• A simple calculator (optional)
• If playing alone, a second deck of cards for solo festival mechanics (optional)
Grandpa's Farm is 24 pages long, and modifications are included for online play.
