Papillon board game

A butterfly garden requires vision and a caring hand. Spring has arrived, and the world is in bloom. As your garden grows, caterpillars will congregate and morph into beautiful butterflies eager for nectar.

Papillon is a tile-drafting, tableau-building, and area majority game for 2-4 players. Over 8 rounds, players will bid for flower tiles to build their garden, attract butterflies to flowers with valuable nectar, and of course, every garden looks better with a gnome. The player that collects the most nectar at the end of the game wins!

  • I like drafting and I like tile-laying. Neither was groundbreaking but it was fine. The majority mechanism was cute and the expansions offered some variety.I feel like the beauty of this one is in the theme and the table presence. If you can't make the leap to love of that there are other games to play that offer similar things.I'm disappointed with the reception of the game more than the game itself, but I wasn't hoping for truely brilliant design. I had more fun putting the flowers together than I had playing the game>_>

Papillon looked liked the most interesting one when I was adding the games initially. It's got such a lovely theme.
