Roses are red.
Roses are blue.
Roses are striped.
Will you be able to corner the market on the best roses and crush the competition?
So, it's not the most romantic of poems, but waddyagonnado? It does explain the concept behind Rare Roses, a new strategy board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
In the town of Bloomsville people live a life of beauty, and floral frolicking. The town is known for its rare rose shops and gardens. However, it’s not all rosy. The competition is tight and the town is full of fierce florists flogging their fanciful floral wares. Are you up to the task?
Will you corner the market on Black, Blue or perhaps Striped Dragon roses and force your competitors to come to you for roses? Will you plan ahead and get the biggest and best profits from the high-end orders? Or will you fill lots of little lucrative lovelies and leave little for others? Many strategies, many roses, much money.
Test your entrepreneurial ingenuity in this fun interactive game for 1 to 6 players. It will only take you about an hour or just a bit more if your negotiations are fierce. Anyone from children to our esteemed elders will enjoy a friendly game of Rare Roses.
We appreciate your support. Help us make something beautiful.
The campaign's about 1/4 of the way to their goal with 20 days left to go.
