Love this game!

We are only one year into our board game ‘life’ but we have found some true favourites along the way, and this definitely tops the list!

The quality of the pieces to the beautiful art work make this game so playable and easy to recommend to anyone.

This Is A Must Have Game!

This game is absolutely stunning! The game theme is really fun and open to potentially many future expansions.

Everdell is a worker placements game where you use meeples to activate locations, purchase critters and architecture to build your own little villages. Each game is unique depending on the cards available to you and some changeable goals alongside some additional random locations to place your meeples.

I purchased this with it’s currently available expansions and have only played the base game so far as I’m really enjoying it as it is at the moment, that said I am excited to play them too when I want to change it up a bit!

Everdell

Fantastic artwork and components to this game - fairly simple mechanics to understand but a lot of depth and strategy, with many different routes to win. Works well 2 player and 3 player (all I have tried). Only reason I'm not giving 5*s are is due to how expensive the expansions are - it feels like the elements they would bring to the base copy would offer a great deal more gameplay, but pricing them at the same cost as a standalone board game seems a bit cheeky from the publishers!

This is a really nice

This is a really nice game, I was hoping it would be slightly harder solo like Wingspan, but it wasn't like I steam rolled the AI. The production values are very high, particularly the quality of the resources and the card art. It has a much bigger footprint than I was expecting when set up, but I would definitely recommend it, especially if you're new to worker placement or are looking for a more accessible or family friendly theme. It's a cute game, also my tree was broken out the box, but the publisher is currently sending me a new one.

Within the charming valley of Everdell, beneath the boughs of towering trees, among meandering streams and mossy hollows, a civilization of forest critters is thriving and expanding. From Everfrost to Bellsong, many a year have come and gone, but the time has come for new territories to be settled and new cities established. You will be the leader of a group of critters intent on just such a task. There are buildings to construct, lively characters to meet, events to host—you have a busy year ahead of yourself. Will the sun shine brightest on your city before the winter moon rises?

Everdell is a game of dynamic tableau building and worker placement.

On their turn a player can take one of three actions:

a) Place a Worker: Each player has a collection of Worker pieces. These are placed on the board locations, events, and on Destination cards. Workers perform various actions to further the development of a player's tableau: gathering resources, drawing cards, and taking other special actions.

b) Play a Card: Each player is building and populating a city; a tableau of up to 15 Construction and Critter cards. There are five types of cards: Travelers, Production, Destination, Governance, and Prosperity. Cards generate resources (twigs, resin, pebbles, and berries), grant abilities, and ultimately score points. The interactions of the cards reveal numerous strategies and a near infinite variety of working cities.

c) Prepare for the next Season: Workers are returned to the players supply and new workers are added. The game is played from Winter through to the onset of the following winter, at which point the player with the city with the most points wins.

 

1-4 PLAYERS | 40-80 MINS | AGES 13+
