Stardew Valley is now on almost every platform, so it’s time for a new medium. Stardew Valley: The Board Game is the coop board game released this week, full of the wholesome goodness of the actual video game.
Stardew dev ConcernedApe revealed the new board game today on the official Stardew Valley website. It’s also available for purchase, which means fans don’t have to wait too long. The game costs a cool $55, but there’s a ton of value there.
The official website lists the game as a “cooperative board game” from 1 to 4 players, with about 45 minutes of gameplay per player. So far, the game’s goal is to restore Stardew Valley and prevent the encroachment of the ever-present Joja Corporation.
“Work together with your fellow farmers to save the Valley from the nefarious Joja Corporation!” says the game description. “To do this, you’ll need to farm, fish, friend and find all kinds of different resources to fulfill Grandpa’s Goals and restore the Community Center.
“Collect all kinds of items, raise animals, and explore the Mine. Gain powerful upgrades and skills, and as the seasons pass, do your best to protect the magic of Stardew Valley!”
Stardew Valley: The Board Game seems like a solid coop game. The description itself notes that it’s not a casual title, but it’s not too complex either. At 45 minutes per player, it’s a great game to play one on afternoon with friends or family.
The rulebook for the game is available online, so it’s best to give it a read before buying. It seems the board game will also be in consistent production if it gets great numbers.
“If there’s more demand for it, then we’ll definitely do more print runs, and maybe slowly expand… we’re kind of just testing the waters for now and see what the response is,” says ConcernedApe in a reply tweet.
So far, it’s likely for the game to get into better production for the future. The Stardew Valley community is among the bigger but more hardcore fans out there. The game itself garners a longer shelf life through dedicated modders and new fans.
Stardew Valley: The Board Game is available from the official website. It’s only shipping to the US only, but the company is looking towards shipping internationally in the near future.
