In this game, players compete to create the most beautiful undersea garden by cultivating oysters, spending pearls to buy plants and animals, and trying to attract beautiful fish. Grow coral, sea grass, feather worms and anemones. Attract beautiful clown fish with your anemones and welcome a lovely sea horse into your bed of sea grass. The player with the most beautiful undersea garden at the end of the game wins.
Octopus' Garden is a tile laying game for 2 to 4 players. Players chose which plant and animal tiles to purchase from a central market and then decide how best to arrange them in their own garden. Careful planning is required to attract seahorses and clownfish, to protect pearl-producing oysters from the sea stars, and to avoid startling delicate feather worms.
