Seikatsu – The spring begins

Seikatsu is an abstract tile laying game by the authors Matt Loomis and Isaac Shalev in which you compete with up to three other players to see who has the best view of the garden in the middle of the board. You take turns placing tiles in the garden, each showing one of four birds and one of four flowers. It is not only a beautiful game in terms of appearance, but its short playing time also makes it very suitable for in-between times. But how does it actually work?
