Also, for anyone else interested, I know part of the setup is the laying out of cards to see the 'board', but having no room for a layout led to an improvisation. I separated the reds and blacks, removing the black suit face cards as per the setup, but I kept the piles and instead marked down a small map to track my progess with which cards. Still does the trick just fine. :3

Played this for the first time last night. Died 3 rooms in because I rolled poorly vs an automaton XD Def going in for a replay because it was fun. Great game! (even if I have terrible dice)
Those are sweet looking. IIRC, to get the black, I kept crossbreeding flowers of opposite colors, like in that screencap, I'd take a bunch of the ones in front, and breed with the blue green near the back. Let's say they're plants A and B. I'd breed at least two sets of A+B, and 2 sets of B+A. I'd pay attention to the offspring that were darker, and breed those, then add maybe a drab orange or a dark red. I just kept crossing on that route, alternated between reds, greens and blues till a black popped up. A lot of work but it was worth it.
I have a few new hybrids and discovered a ton of new random blooms all over the island today. Some are just from areas where I dropped flowers off a few play sessions ago, and didn't get back to until today.
This really is the first game of this sort that has really scratched a curiosity itch that no other game has managed. I keep going back to see what else I can come up with. Thank you for this!
Best way to get a repeat color is to match up two blossoms from that plant (prolly multiple times- it'll mutate a bit each time) then just crossing it with other plant offshoots/hybrids repeatedly. It look me like about 8-10 plants before I got it reliably.
This was . . . unexpected. I don't normally do sandbox games because they bore me really quickly, but this hit on a magic combination for me. I go in expecting to just play for like half an hour, and I lose 6. It's a lovely soothing game that gives me just enough to do to keep me moving. I think this is easily my fave relaxation game as of now.
