Last week we received delivery of the solitaire game Orchard. It is really quick to learn and only take minutes to play. If takes a lot longer to master however. I have now played it countless times and still can't get any higher that 45 points.
Orchard is a quick solitaire 'tile laying' game that plays in under 10 minutes. The aim of the game is to harvest fruit (score points) by playing cards so that their fruit trees overlap other trees already in the orchard that bear the same fruit. The more trees you can overlap, the more fruit you'll pick.
As well as the 9 double sided cards, you'll need 15 dice (of 3 colours) to keep track of your increasing harvest, and 2 cubes to represent 'rotten' fruit. These allow you to lay a card that you wouldn't otherwise be able to - but come with a points forfeit. So you must decide if and when to play them.
Currently the top score is held be Vince, which is 47
Think you can beat it? If so then why not pop in and have a go with our demo copy, better still why not buy one for yourself and play until you do.
