•FARMING GAME: Caverna is a worker-placement game at heart with a focus on farming. In the game, you are the bearded leader of a small dwarf family that lives in a little cave in the mountains. Starting with a farmer and his spouse, each family member represents an action that the player can take. Together, you cultivate the forest in front of your cave and dig deeper into the mountain.
•STRATEGY BOARD GAME: Furnish the caves as dwellings for your offspring and working spaces for small enterprises. Mine ore and use it to forge weapons. Go on expeditions to gain bonus items and actions. While digging through the mountain, you may come across water sources and find ore and ruby mines that help you increase your wealth.
•MULTIPLE PATHS TO VICTORY: Right in front of your cave, you can increase your wealth even further with agriculture: You can cut down the forest to sow fields and fence in pastures to hold your animals. You can also expand your family while running your ever-growing farm. In the end, the player with the most efficiently developed home board wins.
•HIGHLY VARIABLE: This complete redesign of Agricola substitutes the card decks from the former game with a set of buildings while adding the ability to purchase weapons and send your farmers on quests to gain further resources. The game also includes two new animals, dogs and donkeys. You can also play the solo variant of this game to familiarize yourself with the 48 different furnishing tiles for your cave.
•NUMBER OF PLAYERS AND AVERAGE PLAYTIME: This fun family board game is made for 1 to 7 players and is suitable for ages 12 and older. Average playtime is approximately 30 to 210 minutes (30 minutes per player).
