Blossoming is a strategic set collection and pattern building game where you play as competing gardeners. Over five rounds, players draft a market of flowers, then alternate bidding on them to try and acquire the perfect arrangements to plant in their gardens. When all players have planted nine flowers, their gardens are judged to see who wins the coveted Blossoming Garden award!
Each of the five rounds contains three action phases (Drafting, Auction, Planting), where players first alternate drafting cards from the draw pile into a Market. When the Market is complete, players then alternate bidding on the flowers they wish to purchase before planting them into their gardens.
After all five rounds are complete, players score their completed gardens to see who wins.
