Back when I lived in Kansas, I saw quite a lot of farmland. And all along the fence line, you’d see “Private Property” and “Keep Out” signs. Let’s face it, the land is a farmer’s life. You can’t have others encroaching on it. And that’s just what you’ve gotta keep from happening in Get Off My Land, a new board game from First Fish Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Get Off My Land! is a game of “close quarter farming” where farmers compete for limited space and resources. The game takes place over the course of one year as you expand your farm from a humble farmhouse and build it up to generate enough money to declare yourself the most successful farmer!
Each farmhouse starts the game surrounded by forest. The first step is to clear the forest; this not only provides land to build farms on, but also wood to build fences with. By fencing off the cleared land, you create areas to grow crops or raise animals. Once you’ve got cleared and fenced land, it’s time to go to the market to buy crops and animals for your farm. There’s limited stock available though, so buy what you need quickly before other farmers do.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’re about 1/3 of the way to their goal with still 21 days on the clock.
