Description
A wealthy patron commissions a lovely landscape mural, hiring the greatest (and most competitive) painters in the world... you! Interfere with each other’s paintings and compete to win the world’s greatest treasure: Points! On your turn, draw a card from the central display. If it is a Commission card, keep it at your side for scoring at the end of the game. If it is a tree card, you may add it to any player's tree. If you make a contiguous limb of cards sharing one or more features, you score 1 point for each instance of those features in that contiguous group. If you score more than 10 points in a turn, remove the scoring cards and the owner of the tree collects them as "pruned" branches. Then reveal a new card in the central display. If there are ever three Commissions in the display, discard them all and replenish the display with three new cards from the deck.
