Villagers is a beautifully illustrated light to medium weight game of card drafting and tableau building for 1-5 players. You are the founder of a new village in the middle ages, in the years following a great plague. The roads are covered in refugees seeking a new beginning. They come to you, looking to settle down on your land and make a living. Your grain farm is the ideal starting point for a village, reliably giving food for many people. You must decide 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 in turn lean on other people with very specific crafts to be able to work. Raw materials, tools and services are required by other people from the road. If you manage to find people that can work together and make a profit, while improving your food surplus and capacity for building new houses, your village will be prosperous.
