Villages: Distant Lands!

Good news! Villages, a rummy-style card game I've had the pleasure of playtesting, has just released its first expansion, Distant Lands!

For those who haven't heard, Villages was developed by my best friend and husband, Fridgecrisis, and published through The Game Crafter. We took it to CONduit earlier this year, and sold out. It catches people's attention with its adorable 8-bit pixel art, and its roots in old-school video games like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. But they stay because it's fun, easy for kids to get into, and strategic enough for adults. Play it safe and just build villages, battle for cards you want, or give your last few cards away to get a bonus for going out first--the unique properties of each unit help make the game awesome.

The expansion adds 9 new units, plus new animals and buildings, and a set of locations that change the game every round. We've worked really hard to make the game the best it can be. So do us a favor and check it out here!




  1. Fun! The art for this game looks really cute. :)

    1. That would be my husband's design skills at work. I can't yet make pixel-people look so adorable. ;)
