Winner of Meeple Mountain's Best Light Game award!

A beautifully-illustrated, 1-5 player card game designed by award-winning designer Peer Sylvester, pitting rival gardeners against one another as they compete in the prestigious "Village Green of the Year" competition.

It’s the first day of spring, and there’s only one thing on everyone’s mind – the Village Green of the Year competition! In just a few months, the judges of this prestigious contest will be visiting, and the village council have finally put you in charge of the preparations. With your newfound authority, you can show those snobs from Lower Aynesmore just what a properly orchestrated floral arrangement looks like!

In Village Green you are rival gardeners, tasked by your respective communities with arranging flowers, planting trees, commissioning statues, and building ponds. You must place each element carefully--time is tight and the stakes couldn’t be higher! Split your days between acquiring and installing new features for your green and nominating it for one of the competition’s many awards. Will your village green become the local laughing stock, or make the neighbouring villages green with envy?

Players: 1-5
Playing Time: 30 minutes
Ages: 14+
Contents: 96 cards

About the Author

Peer Sylvester started his career in boardgaming quite early, because his dad needed an opponent in chess. In third grade he wanted to become a professional chess player. Instead he turned out to become a teacher for math and chemistry. An award-winning board-game designer of titles like The Lost Expedition, The King is Dead, and Wir sind das Volk!, he has written a number of books on the subject.
