I'm a city boy, through and through. However, my dad's side of the family, up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, did introduce me to the more agricultural living side of things. I've had days feeding cows, or collecting pheasant chicks to make sure they were healthy, and other such like that. Not really sure the lifestyle is totally for me. What is for me, though, is gaming. And Artipia Games is giving all of us city slickers a chance to live out days on the farm vicariously through Fields of Green, up on Kickstarter now.
Fields of Green is a drafting game where players are placed in charge of their own farm. Over the course of four rounds (that represent 4 year's worth of time), players will look to expand their facilities. At the end of each round, the farmers will have to collect their stock in order to get funds in order to expand the next year. After the four years, the player with the most victory points is the winner.
The game's already over their funding goal (2x over, in fact), with still 23 days left to go.
