Stardew Valley is a massively popular video game in which you, the player, inherit a plot of land in a small valley. Your job is to meet the villagers, start a farm on your land and explore the wonderful world. This week, the developer of the video game announced and released the board game version of this video game in their merch store.
Stardew Valley: The Board Game is a cooperative game for 1 to for players. In the game, players will work together to protect their Valley by completing goals from the village's community center. Every round in the game depicts a week in the game. At the start of the round, a season card is drawn that will define the weather for this week and possibly some special events. You will have to discuss what to do every week with other players because there is only so much you can do in a single round and the weather might limit your actions next turn.
Just like in the video game, you will start with the most basic of tools but as time passes you will be able to acquire better tools, learn new professional skills, and gather better resources. The start of the game can sometimes be pretty hard, but by the end of the game, you will have built a beautiful farm! So don't give up!
As of this writing, the game is only available through the Stardew Valley merch store and sadly only ships to the United States. However, there seem to talks with other publishers to get the game to the rest of the world as well, so we are hopeful to be able to start our own Stardew Valley farm soon!
