Now on Kickstarter from Artipia Games, Fields of Green
August 28, 2016 - 12:18am
Artipia Games is currently Kickstarting a new game that brings the mechanics and gameplay of the Among the Stars game down to Earth. The game is called Fields of Green, and it uses the same square cards and drafting mechanics of it's sci-fi cousin. In the game you will have four rounds to build up your farm and start cranking out the victory points. You will draft cards to provide water, produce crops, store crops and water, and then finally take them to market to convert them into points. One interesting mechanism they keep in this game is that certain aspects, like water, can only travel so far. This makes not only the cards you draft important, but also their placement. At the end of four rounds, the person with the most points is the winner. The game looks good with solid art and some nice components in the form and wooden wheat and water tokens. Another nice thing is that there is a cheaper option which requires Essen pickup for those who will be attending the fair. Everyone else will have to pledge at the full price to include shipping, so head on over to the Kickstarter page to pledge for your own copy.
