What do butterflies, wasps, hummingbirds, and flowers have in common? They are all part of the latest game to become part of the Kolossal family! From designer J.B. Howell, Papillon allows players to build beautiful flower…
Fields are flourishing with an assortment life in Papillon. Hummingbirds hover between the flowers keeping out of sight while Caterpillars make long treks across open fields in search of a home. The fields are covered in a dazzling display of color as flowers dot the landscape. Above all of this Butterflies make their descent to each of the flowers to collect their pollen.
In Papillon, players will build beautiful flower gardens to attract all manner of life. The tiles that make up your garden are drafted each round and must be carefully arranged. The butterflies they attract will determine control of the individual flowers while hummingbirds who manage to find a home in fields nestled between the flowers will grant you victory points. Bringing Caterpillars to your field will not only bring you points but can give you an advantage when drafting tiles.
Papillon uses a combination of tile drafting and placement, area control to create a quick-playing, light game for all ages. A fair amount of strategy and planning hides behind simple rules and easy-to-learn gameplay.
