From the Kickstarter:
Designed and beautifully illustrated by Haakon Gaarder, Villagers is a game of card drafting and village building set somewhere very much like medieval Europe. As a village founder you'll invite people from all walks of life to live and work in your expanding community. If you can recruit the right people to form lucrative production chains while balancing your food production and building capacity, your village will become the most prosperous and you'll win the game!
In solo mode, a lone village must prosper against the machinations of the very ill-tempered Countess.
The campaign's more than 3x funded already with still 28 days left to go.
