"Everdell is a streamlined worker placement game that features a detailed world realized through stunning artwork. Utilizing a tableau-building mechanic, players will work to build a city of critters and constructions. Everdell is easy to learn, yet offers satisfying strategic depth and endless replayability."
In Everdell, players take turns, and on each turn, they may either place a worker or play a card. Placing workers provide resources which you will need to play cards, draw more cards, or other various beneficial actions. Cards can trigger bonuses during production, provide more locations for worker placement, enable rewards playing other cards, bend the rules, or give bonus points during scoring. Players have their own hand of cards that evolve throughout the game, but there are face-up cards available to all players, acting as an open-draft.
Replayability wise, every game of Everdell features eight events, half of which are standard for every game but the other half are randomised from another deck of unique events. Everdell rewards players who make the right decisions and take optimised strategies, building a strong engine of cards and combos that both enhance resource production but also end-game point-scoring?
