Lookout Games announces a small expansion to Nusfjord

August 22, 2018 - 9:05pm

Life in the fishing village of Nusfjord, in Norway, is about to become a bit more interesting. Lookout Games have announced the upcoming release of Nusfjord: Plaice Deck which aims to provide more variety to the base game. Nusfjord was designed by Uwe Rosenberg (known for Agricola, Bohnanza, and A Feast for Odin) with art by Patrick Soeder. The game is set 50 years ago in the village of Nusfjord where players are trying to develop the harbor and surrounding landscape, grow their fleet of ships, and satisfy the local elders while keeping their competition at bay. Nusfjord supports 1-5 players, aged 12+, lasts between 20 and 100 minutes, and the Nusfjord: Plaice Deck expansion requires the base set to play. The expansion simply adds another 45 cards which is used as a 4th deck (the base game has 3), as well as two more additions. There's the architect, the first woman on the Council of Elders, who is put under the oldest pile at the start of the game. If you win the pile then she joins your business and provides a random building to be put into play and then allows you to do construction straight after that. The expansion also comes with 25 metal coins, in a gold appearance, and which matches the Nusfjord imprinting. Nusfjord: Plaice Deck is expected to release in October of 2018.
