Samurai Gardener — first published as Edo Yashiki — is a tile-laying game with an historical Japanese theme in which players try to construct as impressive gardens as possible.
Each card consists of six sections of several types of areas (pond, floor, garden, etc.). Players lay the cards side by side or overlapping in order to create long rows of the same area type. Each round, rows/columns of the same area type are awarded points, and the player with the most points when all building cards are depleted wins.
