The Quiet Year (2019 deluxe edition) + complimentary PDF (restock available now)
This is the 2019 edition that comes with larger cards, tokens and a burlip bag.
For a long time, we were at war with The Jackals. But now, we’ve driven them off, and we have this – a year of relative peace. One quiet year, with which to build our community up and learn once again how to work together. Come Winter, the Frost Shepherds will arrive and we might not survive beyond that. But we don’t know about that yet. What we know is that right now, in this moment, there is an opportunity to build something.
The Quiet Year is a map game. You define the struggles of a community living after the collapse of civilization, and attempt to build something good within their quiet year. Every decision and every action is set against a backdrop of dwindling time and rising concern.
The game is played using a deck of cards – each of the 52 cards corresponds to a week during the quiet year. Each card triggers certain events – bringing bad news, good omens, project delays and sudden changes in luck. At the end of the quiet year, the Frost Shepherds will come, ending the game.
For 2-4 players, 3-4 hours.
What's in the bag?
This beautiful game comes in a small burlap bag. You'll receive a forty-page booklet, a deck of oversized game cards (3.25" x 5", just like the booklet), a turn summary card, six small dice, and twenty Contempt Tokens (shaped like weathered skulls). This set also comes with the PDF.
