Paint The Roses
Paint the Roses is a 2-5 player cooperative puzzle game set in the whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland. You and your teammates have been appointed the new Royal Gardeners for the Queen of Hearts but fail to arrange the garden according to the Queen's changing whims and the last thing you hear will be, "Off With Their Heads!"
The Queen's whims are shared via cards, secret instructions each player is given into how the garden should be arranged. Her whims are always changing, so as soon as you solve one, a new one is in your hand.
Every turn, together as a team you must guess at least one of these secret whim cards. You can't say what your card shows, but by carefully placing a new shrub tile into the garden (taken from those available in the Greenhouse) you are able to reveal clues, tokens that will show any matches between the arrangement in the garden and the secret whims each player holds in their hands.
Although you can't discuss your own secret whim card, you can openly discuss other players'. Share your theories at the table and then make a guess. Correctly guessing a whim will move you forward on the score track, but the Queen is always following and her speed automatically adjusts based on your current score. Guess incorrectly and the Queen moves twice as fast, her axe ever closer to your neck.
