Not as exciting as expectedUnless you are stoned and want a simple game that requires little thinking, look elsewhere. This game is not made to be enjoyed by most adults.
Well drawn and designed cards that fit the theme overall.
Unclear instructions and childish gameplay.
This game is geared towards college aged people who enjoy playing games instead of going out every night. While we fit that category, we still found the game quite boring. The goal of the game is to grow more pot plants than anyone else (or really reach 5 plants before anyone else). The gameplay was very simplistic and didn't hold our attention for even one round.
Each player is dealt 5 cards (the rules are very unclear here - at one point it says face down, but then later it deals with your hand). Play goes around the circle where each turn consists of drawing a card, playing a card, and then discarding. First player to have 5 pot plants wins that round. You are supposed to play enough rounds to reach 50 points (1 point per plant). Instructions were included, though they were very short and not concise. We were confused after reading the "how to play" card. The card describing the "card values" was very useful, but basic gameplay could have been more detailed.
I think the game is more of a child's game but with an adult theme. It doesn't translate well to an adult product. The pictures on the cards are entertaining and well drawn, but the gameplay leaves most adults lacking. I don't see people choosing this as the first game to play every time.
