FLASHBACK: VILLAGERS

[Very often, a successful game will spawn, for better or worse, a series of expansions. Such is the case with Villagers. In this issue, we focus on the latest expansion for that game: Villagers: Shifting Seasons. In order for our readers to better understand the expansion, it seems like a good idea to flashback to our review of Villagers that first appeared in the Fall 2019 issue of Gamers Alliance Report.]

VILLAGERS (Sinister Fish Games, 1 to 5 players, ages 10 and up, 30-60 minutes; £20)

 

Life could be hard for folks living in the Middle Ages. They were susceptible to all sorts of upheaval – including plague! In this new game by Haakon Hoel Gaardner, the devastating effects of plague have ravaged the countryside. In the aftermath, players find themselves trying to recruit survivors with the goal of establishing a new – and most prosperous – village, all thanks to the efforts of their Villagers.
