So, step into this whimsical world and let the Everdell Critters take you on a journey you’ll never forget.

When the game is over, you’ll score 1 point for each resin and pebble you have remaining. You can earn up to a maximum of 6 points.

The Bard

Hey there! I’ve got a cool game mechanic for you. Check it out:

You can get rid of up to 5 cards from your hand and, guess what? You’ll earn a point token for each card you discard. How awesome is that?!

Barge Toad

Playing this card during Production will allow you to earn 2 twigs for every Farm in your city.

Sweeping Up the Chips

When I play the game and while it’s being made, I can use a special ability to activate one of my green Production cards in my city. Now, I know you might have a crazy idea in mind, but trust me, it’s not a good one. This happened to us once when the poor thing got a little too excited and ended up burning a hole right through our table. So, let’s not ask him to do that again.


When I play and produce, I can pay up to 3 berries to gain 1 point token for each berry.

The Trickster

You know what’s frustrating? When your opponent plays the Fool card in an empty spot in your city. It’s like a bad smell that just won’t go away. But here’s the thing: you can do the same to them. In a solo game, Rugwort can be just as sneaky, playing the Fool card into your city. And if you decide to play the Fool yourself, you get to discard it and choose one card from Rugwort’s city to remove. Now, that’s a clever move.

The Historian

When you have the Historian card in play, you can draw a card each time you play a Critter or Construction card. So, every time you play a card after the Historian, you get to draw an extra card!


Hey there! Let me introduce you to a card called the Innkeeper. This card is pretty unique because it shares a space with a Wife. Together, they only take up one space in your city. That’s pretty neat, right?

Now, here’s where it gets even better. If you already have a Farm in your city and you pair this Husband card with a Wife, you’ll get an awesome bonus. When you play the Innkeeper card and during the Production phase, you’ll receive one of any resource. How cool is that?

But there’s a catch, my friend. The Innkeeper can only share a space with one Wife. So make sure you choose wisely!


Hey there! Let me tell you about an interesting card called the Innkeeper. When you decide to play a Critter, you have the option to get rid of this Innkeeper from your city. The cool thing is that doing so will actually reduce the cost of the Critter you play by 3 berries. Pretty neat, right? However, I must point out that you won’t actually gain those 3 berries back. Just keep in mind that this ability of the Innkeeper card cannot be combined with any other card-playing abilities, like the Inn or forest tiles that let you play a card. It also doesn’t work with cards like the Dungeon. It’s a pretty unique ability!


When I play a Critter or Construction, I can swap 1 of any resource in the cost with 1 of any other resource that I have. Let me give you an example: If a card requires 2 berries, I can choose to pay 1 berry and 1 twig instead.


When the game concludes, you’ll earn 1 point for each basic Event you’ve accomplished, and 2 points for each special Event you’ve completed.

The Sneaky Miner

Hey there! Let’s dive into a cool game mechanic called the Miner Mole. This little buddy is a green Production card in the world of games. When you’re playing or producing, you have the power to pick any green Production card from an opponent’s city and copy it. But what does that even mean?

Well, imagine you’re playing against someone and they have this awesome General Store card in their city. With the help of your trusty Miner Mole, you can temporarily become that card. This means you get to enjoy all the perks that come with it! In this case, you’ll receive 2 berries if your opponent also has a Farm card in their city alongside the General Store.

If you’re playing solo, don’t worry, the fun doesn’t stop there! You still have the ability to copy a green Production card from Rugwort’s city using the Miner Mole. So keep your eyes peeled for those awesome green cards!


During gameplay and production, I can choose to forfeit up to 2 berries to help out my opponent. In return, I’ll receive 2 point tokens for each berry I give up. It’s a win-win situation! This action also unlocks the second Monastery room, giving me even more options.


When I play and produce, I can exchange up to 2 of my resources for 2 of any other resources. I trade with the general supply and not with other players.

Mail Delivery Bird

When you play the Postal Pigeon card, you get to uncover 2 cards from your deck. Out of these 2 cards, you can choose to play 1 that is worth up to 3 points, and you won’t even have to pay for it! Just discard the other card. Now, if you’re playing the game by yourself, something called a Solo Game, and you use the Postal Pigeon’s ability to play another card, guess what? That counts as if you’ve played 2 cards on Rugwort’s turn.


So, here’s the deal: when you put one of your workers in this spot, you get to play a card from your hand or the Meadow cards without having to pay anything. But there’s a catch – you can only play cards that are worth up to 3 points. And just to be clear, we’re talking about the regular points on the card, not any extra bonus points.

The Scout

So, here’s the deal. When you play this game, you get to move one of your workers to a different spot. Just make sure you follow the regular rules for placing your workers. Oh, and guess what? If you do this move, you’ll unlock the second Dungeon cell. Cool, right?


When I play this card, I get 3 berries. I also get 1 point token for each point token on my Chapel.

The Merchant

When I play a Critter into my city, I get 1 berry. But if I play the Shopkeeper, I don’t get a berry.

The Educator

When I play the Undertaker card and during its production, I get to draw 2 cards. I get to choose one of those cards to keep for myself, and I must give the other card to any opponent of my choosing.

When you play this game, you need to do a few things to keep moving forward and unlock new areas. First, you need to get rid of three of the cards from the Meadow. Once you do that, you can replace those cards with new ones. Then, you get to draw one card from the Meadow and add it to your hand. This can help you strategize and make better moves.

In addition to that, when you play this game, you also have the opportunity to unlock the second Cemetery plot. This can give you more options and increase your chances of success. So, don’t forget to take advantage of this opportunity!


When you play this card, you get to draw three additional cards. The best part is that it doesn’t even count as one of the fifteen spots in your city!


Hey there! Let me tell you about an interesting character in the game. Meet the Woodcarver, someone who shares a space with a Husband. Together, they only occupy one space in your city. How cool is that?

Now, here’s a fun fact: at the end of the game, if the Woodcarver is paired with a Husband, they are worth three points. That’s a pretty good deal, right?

However, there’s a rule—you can only have one Husband sharing the same space as the Woodcarver. It’s like a magic spell that can only be cast once.

So, if you want to make the most of the Woodcarver’s potential, make sure to look for a Husband to pair them up with. Together, they can bring you some valuable points!

Isn’t it fascinating how different characters interact in this game? The Woodcarver is just one example, but there are many more unique and exciting characters to discover. Keep exploring, and who knows what other surprises await you in this wonderful game!

When you play and produce a movie, you can choose to spend up to 3 twigs. For every twig you spend, you will earn 1 point token.
