Everdell is a beloved board game that has captured the hearts of many with its charming artwork, innovative mechanics, and immersive theme. And now, with the release of this latest expansion, players can enjoy even more fun and excitement in the game. The expansion includes various modules that can be mixed and matched with one another, as well as with other expansions of Everdell.
One of the new modules is Nightweave, which adds an automated solo or 2-player variant to the game. Nightweave is handled through a deck of cards, which allows her to build her own town within Everdell. The Nightweave deck can be played on its own, but it can also be expanded with modules that give her personality, plans, and plots (though the latter is only available in solo games).
Another addition to the game is the Special Farm cards. This module replaces the old farm cards with 8 unique ones, each having its own season and abilities.
The expansion also includes 5 Corrin Evertail cards that can be added during setup. These cards can be used as any critter or to house any critters, providing players with more flexibility and options when building their cities.
Last but not least, the expansion introduces Legendary card upgrades. At the start of the game, each player is assigned one legendary creature and one legendary construction. These cards can be played for free if the original card is already in the player's city, or be paid for by their costs shown as usual. They open up an additional space in the player's city, allowing for more buildings and critters to be added.
Overall I’m very impressed of how much attention went into this expansion. Especially the solomode, did not disappoint me.
👍The new solomode feels very well designed with 5 levels of difficulty. Other than evil rat Rugwort it is quite comprehensive and you can really feast on varieties in setup here. It is easy to maintain and the spider meeple is incredible!!
👍 the legendary cards, the Evertail story and the farm cards all are very pretty and add some nice (yet small) tweaks to the game.
➖I honestly can not think of any negatives momentarily. If I think of some, I’ll share it with you!
A copy of this game was provided to me by Tabletop Tycoon for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
