The goal of Four Gardens is to accumulate the most points on the score board by completing landscape cards and finishing sets. Each finished set creates a panoramic view of a garden, called panoramas.
Players can finish panoramas by first laying groundwork cards, acquiring resources by turning the 3D pagoda, and allocating those resources to satisfy the requirements of each groundwork card. Once satisfied, a groundwork card becomes a landscape card. Multiple landscape cards laid in the correct order create a panorama. Each God has their own satisfaction meter which expresses its goodwill towards the gardens and their builders. Players try to please the Gods by completing landscape cards and finishing panoramas.
OG recommends because: it is a visually striking game with a lot of depth for a resource management game, and it has a ruthless scoring mechanism (which is always fun)!
