Board Game designed by David Chircop
In Petrichor, you are a cloud. Use weather to your advantage to ensure you grow the most crops. This sounds like an easy task, but all of the other clouds are trying to do the same thing! Prepare for some mischief in the sky as you trick and outsmart your friends to make sure you are reigning cloud!
Petrichor is a highly interactive board game, playable by 1-4 people (up to 5 with the expansion, see below). It's an action selection/area influence game, with 4 simple actions which interact with the various fields in ever surprising ways. The players move clouds with water droplets, and then rain those droplets onto specific fields, to make sure they have the right amount of water for the Harvest. During a Harvest, crops that have been watered enough are scored! Players are able to influence when, and how often the harvest happens. Players need to strike a fine balance between maintaining control of the different fields as well as influencing Harvest, to make sure the two come together at the optimal time.
