This is part of a series called Training Games, where I review children's games when playing (with modified rules) with my twin toddlers. This review was written when my twins were 17 months old.
First Orchard is a cooperative game where you’re trying to get all the fruit of four different colors into the basket before the crow reaches the end of the path. Each turn you roll a die and put that color fruit into the basket. If the basket is rolled you get to choose the color, and if a crow is rolled you move the crow. It’s good for learning colors and simple strategy with the choosing of the colors.
Ambie, Cassadi, and Crystal discuss some games they've played recently, including Spirit Island, First Orchard, and The 7th Continent. We then talk about ethics and bias in board game media. In this week's "Board Game Etymology" segment, Crystal discusses the origins of the word "adventure."
