Hold onto your turnips, because Village Pillage is back, with two brand-new expansions:
Surf introduces a new type of card - Freebooters, who sail into your hand faster than ever before. Whenever you buy a Freebooter, you can then spend an additional turnip to buy another card (including another Freebooter!). But be warned - they’ll abandon ship at the first sign of trouble.
Turf brings a whole new set of villagers to the market (along with their animal pals), features cards that can affect the entire table (at any player count!), and introduces a brand new mechanism - Provoke! Provoke is the opposite of Exhaust - if your card is Provoked, you must play it next turn.
Each expansion is only $9, and if you buy both, you’ll get the promo pack, which includes the Golem, the Enchantress, and the ability to play the expansions with up to 6 players!
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!
Kickstarted and released in 2018, the game immediately became a family favorite; it’s a robust filler, great for groups of all ages. But don’t take our word for it; this is what people are saying about the game:
“Fast-paced, quick-playing little game with fun art work and great for player social interaction. Great to play with kids and adults.” - WendyRoyal5, BoardGameGeek
"SUPER easy to pick up on, with enough rules to make it a satisfying play for more seasoned gamers. This is the lightweight, between-heavy-games game that I would use for pretty much every group I've played with. Takes only 5-10 minutes to learn, and only about 20 minutes to play. Lots of fun, lots of take-that action, and lots of ways to get what you need in different fashions by adding specific cards to your hand. The artwork is amazingly cool and whimsical, and the rules are easy to understand. Jellybean Games hit themselves a home run with this game. Bravo!" - DJZachLorton, BoardGameGeek
“Has become a firm family favourite - simple to learn, fast and fun gameplay.” - xolf, BoardGameGeek
Over the last year, many people have asked us where they can get their hands on the juicy, juicy, Kickstarter-exclusive wooden turnips. Well, this is your lucky day! Just add $10 to your pledge (or select a pledge level that includes wooden turnips) and you’ll get a pack of 72 wooden turnips AND a beautiful metal chicken coin (for flipping)!
Surf not only provides a set of sea-faring scallywags, it includes extended game cards - play to four relics instead of three. If you’ve ever wanted your Village Pillage games to go just a little bit longer, these extended banks are exactly what you've been looking for!
We’ve spent more than a year putting these expansions together, and we know you’re going to love them! When we were designing Village Pillage, we wanted to make it the cleanest, most streamlined experience we could. As a result, the original game is one of the most quick-to-learn, accessible games you’ll ever play.
For the expansions, we let ourselves get a little weird. The game is still fun, fast, and easy-to-play, but we added Villagers who sacrifice themselves, or let you steal other player’s cards. Raiders who steal turnips in the double-digits, and Merchants which turn your other cards into turnips.
We also listened to what people wanted - interaction across the table, reasons to care about what every player is doing and, of course, more villagers.
We’ve playtested Surf and Turf with experienced village pillagers and new players alike, and everyone agrees: these two turnip-tastic expansions add everything you ever wanted from Village Pillage - and more!
UNLOCKED - At $10k, Village Pillage: Surf & Turf was funded! Everyone's favorite turnip-based game will have two awesome expansions, for even more replayability!
UNLOCKED - When we reach $15k, we'll add a new Farmer card to Turf - the Brewer!
UNLOCKED - After $20k has been raised, we'll include a second promo card in the game - the Enchantress.
UNLOCKED - At $25k, we expanded the Surf expansion to include a new Wall - the Reef!
UNLOCKED - When the campaign hit $30k, we added 5 new relic tokens to the promo pack - castle tokens, for use in the expanded game mode!
UNLOCKED - When we reached $35k, we included a new Raider to Turf - Locusts! Scary stuff!
UNLOCKED - At $40k, we added some cardboard 3-turnip tokens to the promo pack to help ensure you never run out of turnips (even in an extended-play game)!
UNLOCKED - When we raised $45k, Surf got a new Merchant card - the Pirate King!
When we hit $50k, we'll add a special collector's box, to house both expansions!
At $55k, we'll unlock another promo - the Scarecrow!
When the campaign reaches $60k, we'll add a new set of starter cards - these will include new art, and allow the game to be played by up to TEN players!
After we hit $65k, we'll get a new farmer in Surf - the Hermit!
More to come...
UNLOCKED - This was the best first-day result for a Jellybean Games campaign so far! To celebrate, we added a bonus extended bank card to the promo pack, for 6-player mode!
UNLOCKED - When we got 400 ratings of the original game on BGG, we added a 6th relic token to the promo pack!
UNLOCKED - When we hit 500 ratings, we added a new card to Turf - the Pied Piper!
UNLOCKED - When we reached 1500 followers on Twitter, we added a new card to Surf - the Powderkeg!
UNLOCKED - And when we hit 3000 combined likes and follows on Facebook, we added a new card to Turf - the Drover!
To learn how to play the original Village Pillage, check out the Rules Girl video:
Provoke, added in Turf, is the opposite of exhaust - when a card is provoked, it must be played again next turn. You still get to choose which side to play it, but that card is coming out again! The Circus provokes opposing Raiders, the Poacher provokes the Farmer it just robbed, and the Kennel even provokes itself!
Sacrificing a card returns it to the bottom of the market deck. The Diver sacrifices itself after getting you a huge payout; the Navigator sacrifices itself after buying you a cheap relic, and the Powderkeg sacrifices itself AND the Raider it was played against!
Some cards in Surf & Turf can affect more than the card they're up against - they can care about your neighbor's other card (Petting Zoo), help out every Farmer on the board (Beekeeper), steal from every Wall (Ravenmaster), or exhaust EVERY card played this turn (Viking).
For the first time, cards move between villages! The Wild Goose can be stolen by Raiders, going to the hand of the neighbor who attacks it, and the Pied Piper is a Turf merchant who will steal your opponent's card if unable to afford a relic.
Every card in the Surf expansion is a Freebooter! These scurvy seafarers will join your village and bring their friends as well; after you take them from the market, you may immediately pay another turnip and gain another card from the market. More villagers = more pillaging!
For just $9, you can get a copy of either SURF (which adds Freebooters and the extended bank cards)...
...or TURF (which adds the new provoke mechanism, as well as cards that care about the entire table):
For $18, you’ll get BOTH expansions, plus any promos and stretch goals we unlock!
Each expansion adds a unique experience, and setup is easy - just shuffle them into the market card deck. You can even play with both at once!

The art in Village Pillage is gorgeous, but great art doesn’t come cheap! As a small company, we don’t have the cashflow to fund a print run with all the cards we’d like to include. We’ve already paid for as much art as we can, and spent the last year playtesting the game - with your help, we can include new cards and (pretty importantly) print these great expansions!
By supporting us on Kickstarter, you can help us create this fun set of expansions. You’ll get the game before anyone else, exclusive wooden turnips, and promo cards that won’t be available through retail!
Thanks so much for your support!
Risks and challenges
This is our thirteenth project, and we don’t expect to run into any problems with this one. Both expansions are complete and have gone through the first round of blind playtesting. Over the course of the campaign, we’ll be completing the second round and starting the third - all that's left then to complete art unlocked through stretch goals, and start printing!
We always set our estimated delivery date a year ahead, just so we can deliver on-time even in the worst case scenario. Jellybean Games is are renowned for keeping our backers in the loop through our comprehensive updates. When you back one of our campaigns, you know you’re in good hands!
