In Herbaceous, Herb collectors are competing to grow and store the most valuable medley of herbs. Everyone starts with 4 containers, each of which allows a different grouping action: Group herbs of same type Group different types, Group pairs, Group any 5 types (same or different) On your turn, collectors draw an herb and then decide to keep it in their personal collection or put in into the communal pile. If kept, the next goes to the communal pile. If put in the communal pile, next goes in their personal collection. At the start of your turn, you can decide to use a container. If so, you assemble cards from personal and communal spaces, group them, and then turn them all over. You have then 'collected' those and can't use the container again. At the end of the game, collectors determine the best collection as a combination of value from their collection, matching herbs, and herb sets.
