Following a successful crowdfunding project, Hamlet: The Village Building Game is arriving soon from Mighty Boards. In the game, players compete while working together to build a thriving village with the goal of eventually completing the centerpiece church. Hamlet is for one to four players, ages 10+, plays in around 60 to 90 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of around $54.99 when it hits stores in Q1 of 2023.
About the game:
Hamlet is a medium weight competitive village builder where players are communally turning their Hamlet into a bustling little town. In this tile placing game, players construct buildings that everyone can use to create materials, refine resources, earn money and make important deliveries to construct the Hamlet’s big landmark – the Church.
The game features irregular shaped tiles that connect together without a grid to form a village that is completely different every time. The tile placement organically creates interconnecting paths that the villagers use to transport resources across the village. This leads players to construct boards where no two games will ever feel the same. Since the buildings are communal, this also creates a fluid economy, where players are always working hard to provide the village with the resources that are most needed.
The game is designed by David Chircop (Petrichor, The Pursuit of Happiness). It plays between 1 to 4 players, with a solo mode currently being developed.
