Mt Village
Stronghold Games
An entire new chapter opens in the village chronicles as each player leads their own village to fame and fortune. 
You start with a farmyard and one villager of each of 5 professions . You improve your village by adding buildings and fields, pushing on with your travels and attracting customers and monks, all while time ticks steadily away.  Every now and then a villager passes away, leaving his profession unoccupied.  And even though you can train a descendant to fill his shoes, soon you have to neglect some areas to focus on others.

    New Game Arrival!
Castles Of Burgundy
The Card Game
Ravensburger
Fans of the strategy board game, Castles of Burgundy will surely like Stefan Feld's new card game format.

Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game, is a set collection game at it's core.  The game is played over 5 rounds with 6 turns in each round. The object is to maximize victory points through strategic actions. Playing cards serve as "dice" that provide the possible actions players can make.  Will you trade or buy livestock, build city buildings or invest in scientific progress?  There are many paths to prosperity and prestige.

Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game has enough similarities to the board game version that it's easy to pick up the rules. However, there are enough differences to make it a different game.
