Welcome to Biergarten, the game of Alpine heritage, comfortable atmospheres, and cold bier! Biergarten is now live on Kickstarter, and we would love for you to join us in your very own biergarten.
Biergarten is designed as a quick game for a relaxing afternoon with friends, and features 50 individually designed cards with Alpine-inspired architecture and decor.
It is essentially a tile placement game, and players compete as up-and-coming restaurant owners expanding their outdoor patios, or biergartens. Each card features either one or two colors, as well as a wall segment on one, two, or three sides of the card. Players earn points for each color match that they make, and having a match between each of the four colors earns a bonus of three points. Watch out for walls -- they block the flow of the garden, and color matches can't be made through a wall. However, if players can entirely enclose their biergarten within a continuous wall, they earn a six point bonus. The first player to ten points triggers the victory round, with each player thereafter getting one additional turn to top the winning point value.
After playtesting the game at GenCon, we have added an alternate scoreboard to allow for 15 point games and an additional bonus mechanic -- any player having a cluster of seven umbrellas of one color will earn an additional two points. This bonus can be earned one time for each of the four colors. In order to facilitate the longer games, we have also added additional cards, including 2 limited edition home cards!
Biergarten has debuted to glowing reviews: Meeple Mechanic reviewers gave the game 5/5 for fun, 5/5 for aesthetics, and 5/5 for long term replay-ability, and Across the Board Games says "Biergarten is a refreshing change of theme and one that is well executed"!
If you're a fan of cold steins and leiderhosen with your beer and pretezels game, head over to the Kickstarter today!
