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.
