Cottage Garden

From Stronghold Games
Fill every bed in your garden with plants, flower pots, and cats with this beautiful illustrated game, all about creating the perfect garden. We adore the tiny 3D wheelbarrow it comes with (so cute)!
Players: 1-4
Time: 45-60 minutes
Ages: 8+
Candle Match: bring your Cottage Garden to life when you light up Green Thumb. Notes of fresh green herbs, warmed with amber, light woods, and gentle violet.
Cottage Garden Game


From Flatout Games
We have a lot of crazy cat ladies here at Mythologie, so we're a little biased, but we don't think you can get much cozier than this game of quilts and cats. Compete to create the coziest, pretties quilts by sewing patches and attracting kittens to sleep upon your creations.
Players: 1-4
Time: 30-45 minutes
Ages: 14+
Candle Match: get cozy and warm with Clothespins & Quilts. Notes of cozy blankets stacked upon a canopy bed, and fresh air from an open window, warmed through with vanilla and cocoa butter.


From Starling Games
Lead a group of forest critters to build a new settlement, gather resources, and set up your city for success. This game's artwork is great for fans of Redwall or the Wind in the Willows and the various elements make it endlessly replayable.
Players: 1-4
Time: 40-80 minutes
Ages: 13+
Candle Match: For the foresty vibes (and also gathering berries as resources) we suggest burning Through the Brambles when you play this game. Notes of blackberries warmed by the sun, deep within a tangle of branches, where honeysuckle and violets grow wild.

Queenz: To Bee or Not to Bee

From Manoo Games
Set up hives and plant orchids trying to attract bees and harvest the most valuable honey. Line up your colored flower tiles on your "field" to score points. Easy to learn for younger as well as older players, this is a great family game.
Players: 2-4
Time: 30 minutes
Ages: 8+
Candle Match: For this honey of a game, you deserve a buzz worthy candle (sorry, I'll stop now). Our recommendation is Honeycomb Haven. Notes of golden honey and toasted almonds, gentled with a soothing herbal musk.

Bring Your Own Book

From Self-Published/Matthew Moore
A great party game, Bring Your Own Book provides prompt cards like "Advice for Graduating Seniors." Every player selects a book (whether one they brought to the party or one provided by the host from their own collection) and has one minute to find the best response to that prompt from within the book. Scramble for the perfect answer or choose a sentence at random to see what hilarity ensues.
Players: 3-8
Time: 20 minutes
Ages: 12+
Candle Match: Our Book Nook candle was designed with lovers of literature in mind and is perfect to burn in your library or on game night. Notes of suede armchairs and cedar bookshelves, fresh lemon squeezed into ginger tea, and stories of old.

Tussie Mussie

From Button Shy
Tussie Mussie is a wallet sized game, a single pack of cards you can fit in most wallets. A great game for traveling! Based on the Victorian custom of assigning meaning to different flowers and creating "message" bouquets, this game lets you create your own "card bouquet" as you try and rack up as many points as possible.
Players: 2-4
Time: 20-30 minutes
Ages: 8+
Candle Match: For floral bliss, we suggest pairing Tussie Mussie with the I Dream in Lavender candle. Notes of fresh-picked lavender drying on a bed of sweet hay, crushed eucalyptus, alluring spices, and cedar.
