About

It’s another beautiful day in the village! Your farmer is hard-working and defenseless, your wall is strong and true, your raider is a plucky underdog, and your merchant is hiring the finest folk that turnips can buy.

Everything is perfect...except for those HORRIBLE OTHER VILLAGES! Ugh, you hate them so much!

But you’ve got a plan to rise above these petty squabbles. You’re going to become a KINGDOM.

In Village Pillage, you're racing your neighbors to acquire 3 relics and prove your right to rule. Each turn, everybody simultaneously plays cards against both their neighbors. It's rock-paper-scissors meets the prisoner's dilemma...with turnips!

If you think your opponents are planning to farm, raid them! If they're planning an attack, man the walls! And if they're putting up defenses: it's farming time.

Buy more powerful cards to improve your hand, and start building up your turnip collection! Once you have enough, you need to send your vulnerable merchant to buy a relic. And your neighbors know that. But you know they know that. But they KNOW you know they know that...

Check it out!

Village Pillage rules!

Cards steal and gain turnips, defend your stockpile, buy new cards, and convert your turnips to relics. The first player to acquire 3 relics wins the game!

With 20 unique market cards you can buy for your village and add to your hand, every game is different!

 

All shipping is EU-friendly!

All backers of this campaign will get a set of Kickstarter-exclusive wooden turnips.

Risks and challenges

This is our seventh project, and we are getting better every time! We have already completed the majority of our development: we’ve gone through months of blind playtesting, and the rulebook, art, graphic design, and all cards are complete.

Once the campaign wraps up, all we need to do is send it to the printer.

That’s it!

We launched a campaign earlier in the year, and cancelled it so that we could take the time to price out some cool upgrades (like the wooden turnips!) - we have samples of the wooden turnips, and our printer has assured us that these new components won't affect timelines.

We are renowned for keeping our backers in the loop through our comprehensive updates. When you back a Jellybean Games campaign, you know you’re in good hands!

If you have any questions, you can message us through Kickstarter or email us directly on contact@jellybean-games.com for a prompt response.

We are so confident that you're going to love this game, we're offering a money-back guarantee: At any time before we ship, you can get in contact for a full refund. As well as that, if you decide that Village Pillage isn’t for you within a month of receiving it, you can return it and get your money back, no questions asked.
