We are working to add even more Stretch goals at no cost to our Kickstarter backers, new information will be available here

We are a small company so this will be a limited edition financed by this KickStarter. 

There will be some copies remaining after the fulfillment of all our backers because of the minimum production quote, but it will be selling at MSRP 55 usd or more, and if we ever produce additional copies they will be more expensive and without the stretch goals modules. 

This KickStarter have almost a distribution price. Kickstarter copies found at stores have been bought during the campaign. Our sponsors at Kickstarter are those who made this project a reality, the preferential price is only for Kickstarter.

The leftover copies will be sold through Funagain here, (but will only be available after sending all the copies to our backers, and with higher price )

What we have accomplished so far...  

  • We already have linen cards :) (there's nothing like cards with textures) .
  • Recently we unlocked 3 expansions modules (More information of the expansions on March 13 update and in February 29 update).
  • We added digital rules in German, Dutch, Italian and French.
  • New improved variants for 2 players.
  • We changed the cardboard tray for a plastic tray
  • We add more event cards

if you want to know, how great this game is, please check out the first edition on bgg.

Differences with the first edition: 

  • We replaced the cubes by animeeple.
  • We replaced the seeds by vegimeeples.
  • We added boards for 5 and 6 players.
  • We improved the game board layout.
  • We added events, rodeo, water, horses and many other things

Here is your chance to get a copy of this successful, improved and hard to find Chilean game.

This is an exclusive standalone version of the game, which will only be produced now thanks to KS. We do not plan to make another retail version, but if we make it, it will be more expensive, and will not include the stretch goals rewards. If any retailers want copies of this game, please back this KS.

Mi Tierra Nueva Era is a worker placement and resource management game inspired by the beautiful Chilean countryside. Two to six farmers strive to produce, buy and sell the most goods, competing to become the richest, most successful landowner.

For the final rules we are working with Nathan Morse, who has participated officially in the translation and revision of over 250 rulebooks (and more unofficially). A native English speaker, Nathan has played the first edition of Mi Tierra several times.

Mi Terra was designed by Alberto Abudinen and Diego Benavente (aldebarangames@gmail.com). They've been designing games together since 2007, and now have partnered with JcK (www.jck.cl) and the Spanish publisher Guerra de Mitos (www.guerrademitos.com). Production will be handled by Panda Games (www.pandagm.com), ensuring our backers that every aspect of the process is properly managed, as well as guaranteeing the quality of components.

Game reviewers in Chile, Europe and the U.S.A. consistently say that they enjoy both editions of Mi Tierra because of its multiple winning strategies, beautiful artwork, and simplicity of mechanics.

Rahdo: “Really solid game…Jen and I had fun playing it all the way through from start to finish…I am very, very impressed, the gamut of gamers this game can handle.”

Tom Vasel says : “Fast, simple, random (luck & cards), Agricola-lite (minus the card goals), almost on the same level as Stone Age…good for kids and adults.”

Second Edition: Rahdo Final Thoughts

Jacob’s Comments: "Farming in games is nothing new, but what draws me to Mi Tierra is the level of detail to the whole farming process. It’s like what I imagine 4-H in a box would be. Not only do you have to do things like plant different crops, but you have to irrigate them, harvest them, sell them or send them to be processed. The game goes beyond farming though too and it allows you to enter rodeos (though I do wish the rodeos were a bit more involved). Seriously it is 4-H in a box".

Alexander Quarella: “Mi Tierra: Nueva Era impressed me for a very particular reason: think about the hardest German game you know; now imagine you have a magic able to turn it into a game suitable for everyone without losing his charm. This is Mi Tierra.”

Ariel Claure Terán - Collaborator: “The improvements in this new version integrate the original game with the expansion in an outstanding way. The new rodeo and irrigation mechanics enrich players’ experiences with novel options and necessities. I found the game very well balanced, allowing you to focus on something specific, or to do a little bit of everything with equal chances of winning. Replayability looks good too, given that many relevant aspects randomly force the player to adapt and play differently each time. In addition, it has rules that scale suitably depending on the number of players. All things considered, I think Mi Tierra: Nueva Era is a game well worth owning.”

Designers Reviews: Ketty, Alberto y Diego

Based on the feedback that we've received, we’ve made the following improvements to the second edition:

  • A revised rulebook, in English and Spanish.
  • Increased replayability.
  • More options: rodeo, water, horses, etc.
  • Faster games, limited to 7 years (rounds).
  • Additional winning strategies.

Check out the Mi Tierra Nueva Era rulebook to see how the game offers multiple ways to achieve victory. Inspired by Agricola and influenced by Pillars of the Earth, the game is set on a farm with multiple locations to place workers. We use dice and random events in order to add some luck, always present in real life.

Now we will have digital copies of the rules in German, French, Italian, Dutch, and paper copies of the rules in Spanish and English.

You can find the English rules here and the Spanish rules here. We will also have rules in Italian here, and French here. And we are working with the rules in German and Dutch.

* If we reach €17.000 within the first week, we will replace the cardboard tray for a plastic Tray.

** 4 Village expansion cards: Every player will start with a Village card that gives a special ability to that player. Ex: Once per turn you can sell chickens for one more peso each.

*** 4 International Market cards: Players can place one worker at the International Market to draw one International Market card. This is a special order; if you fulfill it (during the maintenance phase) before the game ends, you will earn pesos as indicated (you don’t lose any resources, you only need to have them).

More information of the expansions in "March 13 update"(Merchant) and in "February 29 update"(International Market  and Village expansion)

Following Jamey Stegmaier's advice (who has been very helpful and without whom we could not have done this project), we'll ship games in bulk to order fulfillment centers around the world to reduce customs fees & VAT, while keeping shipping prices low. Only once we've sent the game to all the backers we'll sell the game to the general public.

This game offers Chilean-friendly shipping, and we also have a pledge level for Canadian backers. FunAgainGames will help us deliver games to the USA and Canada.

Note: We do not have complete information on customs and related fees for Brazil and Russia. We are charging €50 for shipping to these two countries, and will reimburse any excess charges. If this value changes during the campaign, we will let you know.

Where the money go.

Risks and challenges

Some reviewers and play testers showed concern about the replayability of Mi Tierra's first edition. We confronted this problem when developing the second edition by introducing new paths to achieve victory, new mechanics, new industrial developments, new C markets and new event cards. We've worked hard to balance the new components through successive playtests of the game, and we are convinced that Mi Tierra: Nueva Era is balanced, and much more fun.

Some of the information and images may suffer small changes in the final game; we would like to improve the game with the comments from this campaign.

Our other concern is manufacturing and fulfillment. We are working with Panda Games, a well-known board game manufacturer – hopefully this should alleviate the risks of undertaking a project like the second edition of Mi Tierra.

We are also aware that shipping worldwide is a very complex process: our box isn't small and we have a lot of components; that in itself will prove to be an additional challenge. With the help of Jamey Stegmaier’s blog (from StoneMaier Games) and the advice we’ve gathered from other developers on BoardGameGeek, we will try and make it work as best as we can.

Apparently shipments to Brazil may be late and have additional charges. We want to support our Brazilian backers, so if you have problems please contact us and we will do what we can to help you.
