We have good news for fans of the adorable farming simulation RPG Stardew Valley: it is now available in board game form! The game̵
Just like in the video game, in the board game version you also play a reluctant character who just inherited their grandfather’s farm and agreed to take over. In the game you will perform similar tasks such as clearing the land, growing crops, raising animals, making various goods, fishing and (of course!) Socializing and role-playing with your new fellow townspeople. You also team up with other players to achieve “Grandpa’s Goals”, such as restoring the community center and driving the evil Joja Corporation out of your town.
Like its video game counterpart, the Stardew Valley board game offers single player gameplay and multiplayer cooperative gameplay. Barone stated in a recent blog post that “this game is designed to have some depth and complexity. It’s easy to play once you’ve learned the rules, but it’s not a short, no-strings-attached game. He estimates it will take players about 45 minutes each to complete, although this can be tweaked to make the game a little shorter or expand it as needed.
