"To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee." —Emily Dickinson

Life finds its way in this quiet meadow...

Immerse yourself in the wonder of nature and create a vibrant meadow bursting with flowers to attract the most vital creatures of the ecosystem - graceful Hummingbirds, swift Dragonflies, flittering Moths, delicate Butterflies, dancing Ladybugs, and revered Bees, the king of all pollinators.

With each turn, you will place uniquely shaped tiles, aiming to match petals and grow flowers. But it doesn't end there - it's about nurturing the ecosystem by providing the right flowers to each fluttering critter, spreading their rich pollen throughout the meadow. You will accomplish this by strategically enclosing tiles, boosted by clever use of your bee token.

Don't take too long to make your move though - the supply rondel is running low, and once a single stack of tiles is emptied, the game comes to an end. The player with the most pollen at the end of the game will be crowned the winner and earn the admiration of all the pollinators in the meadow!

Flutter - Phase Shift Games


Grow a Meadow of Wings & Pollen

Flutter is a strategic tile-laying strategy game for 2 to 5 players, ages 8 and up, and it takes about 30 minutes to play. Players take turns laying tiles of varying shapes, earning petal tokens for matching flower petals in each corner. As the game progresses, players will spend those petal tokens when they enclose a previously laid tile, supplying the tile's pollinator with all the flowers it needs, earning pollen. Once a single stack of tiles in the supply rondel has been emptied, the player with most pollen is the winner!

  • Strategic tile laying, with unique geometric shapes.
  • Novel use of a rondel in a tile laying game.
  • Eco-friendly: All paper and wood components, in all versions of Flutter, are made using 100% FSC-compliant (Forest Stewardship Council) materials.
