Description:

In Seikatsu, players take turns placing tiles into a shared garden area, with each tile showing a colored flower and colored bird.

Players score for groups of birds as they place them, but they score for rows of flowers only at the end of the game and only for the rows of flowers that exist from their perspective, i.e., that are viewable as lines from where they sit at the game board.

In the game of Seikatsu - a word that means "life" in Japanese - players tend a shared garden between each of their pagodas, and compete to have the most breathtaking view of the finished garden.

Take turns drawing and playing Garden tiles that feature both a bird and a flower to create flocks of birds and rows of flowers, as seen from your pagoda. Who has the best view of the garden? It's all a matter of perspective!

Components

  • 1 Garden board
  • 32 garden tiles
  • 1 Cloth Bag
  • 3 Scoring Pawns
  • 4 Koi Pond Tiles

Setup

1 Lay out the Garden board in the center of the play area, and rotate it so that each player is directly facing one of the Pagodas on the board. The pagoda you are facing determines your player color. In a 2-player game use only the pink and blue pagodas. …



When playing with four players, divide up into two teams. Teammates should sit across from one another. Each team will play from the perspectives of one pagoda, so only the pink and blue pagodas will be used.

Follow the setup rules as normal, except when placing tiles onto the Garden board.

1 Draw 4 tiles and place them on the 2 spaces adjacent to the central koi pond showing flowers, and on the 2 2 spaces adjacent to the central koi pond closest to the green flower. …



When playing Seikatsu solo, you will lay tiles similar to the regular game, and you will score flower sets from the perspective of your pagoda as usual.

However, you will compete against the combined score of the perspectives of the other two pagodas. Choose a difficulty setting: Easy, Medium, or Hard.

Depending on the difficulty setting you choose, you may count Flocks of birds for yourself, ignore Flocks, or add them to your opponent's score. If your score is higher than the sum of the other two perspectives you win the game. …
