Coming to Kickstarter on April 4th

A butterfly garden requires a vision, and a caring hand. As you plan out what to plant and where, caterpillars will congregate and clouds of butterflies will be drawn to the most desirable flowers. As a butterfly gardner, you’ll need to balance the size and number of your flower beds, and attract butterflies to the flowers with the best nectar.

Papillon is a tile drafting, tableau building, area control game for 2-4 players where each player attracts butterflies to their garden in an attempt to gain the most Nectar! Each round you will bid a number of caterpillars to select the most desireable field tiles from those available to place in your garden. Completing patches of flowers will allow you to place your own butterflies on valuable potted flowers with varying Nectar values.

Have the most butterflies on a flower to score the most Nectar! You’ll score points in other ways too, as the butterflies in your garden, your two largest flower patches, and even the caterpillars you keep will add to your score at the end of the game.
