Life in the village is hard – but life here also allows the inhabitants to grow and prosper as they please. One villager might want to become a friar. Another might feel ambitious and strive for a career in public office. A third one might want to seek his luck in distant lands.
Each player will take the reins of a family and have them find fame and glory in many different ways. There is one thing you must not forget, however: Time will not stop for anyone and with time people will vanish. Those who will find themselves immortalized in the village chronicles will bring honor to their family and be one step closer to victory.
Village is a game full of tactical challenges. A smart and unique new action mechanism is responsible for keeping turns short and yet still tactically rich and full of difficult decisions. Also unique is the way this game deals with the delicate subject of death; as a natural and perpetual part of life in the village, thoughts of death will keep you focused on smart time-management.

Village is an excellent strategic game. It is not an "entry level" game, but not too heavy. It has a fairly unique villager aging mechanism, and there are multiple strategies to win.
Thematically, it is set in a medieval village where you start with a four 1st generation of villagers. Over the course of the game you add extra villagers of later generations, while some of your older villagers will eventually die of old age. You gain extra victory points for the contribution to village life that the older villagers have made in their life.
You need to manage your levels of participation in the village's civil administration or the Church, village crafts, trades and farming. Or you can send a villager or two off to see the world.
This game is very popular with several of the gaming groups we play at. It has nice artwork and intuitive game play.
I highly recommend it.
