Simple Funny and QuickOverall we get a kick out of it and for the price you really aren't losing much if anything if you want to give it a go. I would recommend it for some simple laughs or as an ice breaker.
Simple, rules clearly explained, and easily altered
Might be boring for some or content objectionable to others
This is an easy-to-learn strategy card game where you and the other players compete to grow the most pot plants. It's a very simple, no-nonsense game that doesn't have a lot of rules or complicated instructions, and can be fun or boring depending on what you are looking for.
The game includes 54 game cards and two instruction cards with the description of each card and rules clearly stated. The instruction are easy and the game play is even more so. I wont get into the exact description of each card as I have seen others write them and to be honest the boyfriend took the game home with him to play with his buddies. It's said to be an easy to-to-learn strategy card game and the objective of the game is to compete to grow the most pot plants while also trying to prevent other players from establishing healthier crops. You can plant 'Dandelions' in someone else's garden, 'Steal' plants, and even 'Bust' another player for possession. The game ends when you have five plant cards in your garden. Other players or yourself can use the 'Potzilla' card who can destroy a person's garden "card set up." It's for 2-4 adult players but you can add a second or third deck to increase the amount of cards for more players.
The box is set up just like a deck of cards, which makes sense, and even though the description of the game says it's a strategy my boyfriend and I think it's more of a luck-of-the-draw kind of game---we have yet to find the strategy portion of it. The cards are simple paper material so if you were to spill a drink or something on them the ink can bleed or run and the cards could be rendered unusable. The design and writing on the cards are kept to a minimum with only the plant photo on the back and the necessary photo and card name on the other side. No bells or whistles---just simple.
The game might not appeal to everyone because of the content. Bf and I have played it a few times and he and his friends usually play it after a few beers. Those that we have played with all seem to get a kick out of it.
I have found the game to be very simplistic and entertaining. My boyfriend and I have played it exactly how the rules state and get a laugh, but we have found that due to the game's simpleness the rules can be changed pretty much however you feel like it to fit your desired amount of players or simply to make the game more fun or different, which we have done with ease and a lot of enjoyment. Some people might find the game too easy so therefore might equate it with being boring. Some might have fun and enjoy it as we have, or might keep it in the drawer for those times when they are completely hammered or---if your preference---high! I had to put that in, sorry.

I have yet to see the game deck since the boyfriend took it but according to him he and his buddies still get a kick out of it.
