It’s Harvest Time!
In Cornucopia, your goal is to fill your basket with a bountiful collection of fruits and vegetables while at the same time, correctly predicting how long it will take you to fill your basket. You can try to assemble a basket with only one type of fruit or vegetable, which is difficult to do; or you can try to collect the entire range of harvest products. In either case, you want to complete your harvest as efficiently as possible to earn the most coins.
Players can bet and win more coins by correctly predicting the outcome (success or failure) of opponents’ efforts to assemble their harvest, so players stay involved and engaged in the game even when it is not their turn!
Cornucopia’s gameplay is deceptively simple but both the bidding and scoring systems add an enjoyable level of strategy to the game. It all adds up to a Cornucopia of great fun for the whole family!

|I don't like downtime in games, and Cornucopia handles this in a very elegant way, by letting players bet on the succes or failure of the active player. The points from these bets are small enough to not be game breaking, but big enough to keep everyone interested and active the whole game.
