Village in a Box - Kickstarter edition

Sold out.

Build a sweet village in 15 minutes!

Village in a Box is a game about village-building. There's nothing fancy here - you're just some impoverished medieval noble trying to build a decent home for your miserable subjects. And well you should. At least a couple other nobles in the area are doing what they can to build up a sweet village, too. Trade with your opponents, or send thieves their way to slow their progress.

Simultaneous Play:
1. Everyone takes 6 cards.
2. Build what you can; trade cards with opponents to take the most advantage of your cards.
3. Save 2 cards in your hand; discard the rest.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 until someone has a village worth 20 points. The person with the most points wins.

Requirement-Based Building: 
Most cards have requirements you must build first. Each card can be used as a requirement only once! Save high-value cards while you build up the required infrastructure--or develop the most basic structures and hope for the best. These requirements form the tech-tree that allows you to build bigger and better buildings. 

This is the Kickstarter edition and as such includes the "Water and People in a Box" expansions. These include:

  • Water in a Box: introduces the Water resource card and expands the tech tree to include the Great Hall, Harbor, Palace, and Mill.
  • People in a Box: introduces 10 unique Character cards, each with a unique hidden ability, to add a deep new layer of strategy and bluffing to the game.
  • expands the basic card game to allow an additional player to join the game.


Number of players: 2 - 5

Playing Time: 15 minutes

Age: 12+
