The Aim of the game is for the players to harvest wooden fruits pieces and place them into their baskets before the Raven eats them and is a game of many angles.
It’s a team game with no losers — you work as a team to pick the orchard’s fruit before the raven wins the game… so it’s the team against the raven; everyone wins or loses together.
What our testers said

What our experts think
Children liked being able to put the pieces of fruit in the basket, and enjoyed the excitement of trying to collect all of the fruit before the raven ate it! Board games such as Orchard are great for helping children to develop their social skills, learn to take turns and work together to win. Younger children can also practice matching the images on the dice with the fruit on the board.
