The Kickstarter hit Villagers is a card drafting and engine building game for 1-5 players. Recruit workers and outwit your opponents to build the most prosperous village in this beautifully illustrated card game. Includes the 2018 Kickstarter Expansion Pack inside the base game box, which adds new groups of villagers in the form of Saints, Sinners, Profiteers, and the excellent Developments expansion. Expansion also includes four chunky printed wooden tokens.


You are the founder of a new village during the middle ages, in the years after a great plague. The loss of so many people has created big problems for the survivors. Many of the people the villagers used to depend on for essential things like food, shelter and clothes are gone. Craftsmen find themselves without suppliers of raw materials, traders have lost their customers and many have lost their farms and workshops as they escaped the plague.

The roads are full of refugees seeking a new beginning. They come to you, hoping to settle down on your land and make a living. Your grain farm is the ideal starting point for a village, reliably providing food for many people. You must choose wisely who you allow to settle with you, as your food and resources are limited.

The people on the road have valuable and unique skills, but they all in turn rely on other people with very specific crafts to be able to work. Raw materials, tools and services must be provided by other people from the road.

If you manage to find people that can work together to make a profit, while increasing your food surplus and capacity for building new houses, your village will be prosperous.

I have played this multiple times with varying amounts of people, and every single game is full of laughter and strategy!
Great drafting game. Fast to learn, fast to play, engaging the whole time. I love the art style.
If you buy one game this year, make it Villagers.
The mechanics were solid, not overly complex, and deep. Solid game, and I'm very impressed with it.
Favorite 2 player game of 2019
