Explore a new underwater society in Pearlbrook, the first expansion for Everdell!
Pearlbrook introduces a new side board, the river board, where you'll send your frog ambassador to gather a new resource: pearls. You'll also encounter new aquatic critters and constructions! Collect enough pearls and you can construct fabulous wonders and adornments, to make your city the pride of Everdell!
Everdell is one of our family's top games so we were always going to buy this expansion. It adds new Critters and Constructions from the watery Pearlbrook, and a lovely new resource- Pearls. Pearls are really hard to come by but you need to get them in order to pay for Adornments and to help achieve Wonders which are new end-game points which replace the Basic Events from the base game. There are also new locations to visit- River Destinations- that are different from the basic and forest location on the main board and you need certain types of cards in your city before you can visit them with your Frog ambassador (a new worker that is the only one allowed to visit Pearlbrook). All in all, we do enjoy this expansion, however if you want to win this game, you can't ignore the Wonders and just build your city. The Wonders are worth too much to forget about and depending on whether you welcome something else to think about, you may or may not enjoy the expansion.
