Description
 
Its 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 their 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 the bidding and scoring system adds an enjoyable level of strategy to the game. It all adds up to a Cornucopia of great fun for the whole family! GRYPHON BOOKSHELF SERIES #10

A set-collection farming game with wagering May 31, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
Cornucopia has a farming theme combined with wagering and set collection mechanics. Players have to collect fruits and vegetables, while trying to predict how long their baskets will take to fill up. A betting element allows you to predict the results for opponents, which keeps you involved even when it's not your turn.

The elements of set-collection, press-your-luck, bidding, and betting come together in a way that creates a very fun game with no downtime, and lots of tension and excitement. This makes it a great 30 minute game for non-gamers or a filler for gamers.  

In short, Cornucopia offers interesting betting elements that keep everyone involved, and is a fun filler ideal for families and non-gamers, offering a fun experience of games like For Sale, yet with a completely unique feel.
