Waffle Gardens

The Zuni Pueblo developed the distinctive Waffle Gardens, named for the pattern created by the plot preparation which made the gardens look like giant waffles. The garden was divided into rectangular pieces of land where crops like corn, squash, and beans were planted.

The two players in this game will seed the Waffle garden with their crops with Player 1 planting corn and Player 2 planting squash. The players decide to compete for each square of soil in the Waffle Garden. They decide to claim garden squares by taking turns laying down sticks around the squares. The Player who puts down the third side on any square gets to claim the square for his crop. When a square is won, the winning Player can continue with another turn. The crop with the most won squares wins the game. Have fun planting!
