UPDATE: There was a typo pointed out and it is now updated! Harvest is on the 4th and the 8th, not the 4th and the 5th. Sorry about the confusion! 

You've achieved the dream! You have a farm, in a cool place full of forests and the mysterious dungeon keep, and there is the promise of glory-- with a festival at the very end of the year. Play against several farmers, with a world master controlling it all, to win by having the most points in your farm display. 

Each season is condensed into 9 days,  with harvest on the 4th and the 8th. Unlock cool items through random events with NPC's, buy livestock, and traverse the dungeons of Dungeon Keep. 

This is take root. 


This is my first tabletop game of any kind. It's loosely based on Settler's of Catan and other strategy games like it mechanics + Farming games like Stardew Valley. I'm not sure if it'll be too complex for fun but I would encourage people to make variations to the game as necessary. I've made a lot of the events in the Dungeon and dating events kind of vague, so if you're a world master that really wants to spin a tale, feel free to add choices and even more odds to events! I literally ran out of space on the pamphlet, so I thought I'd leave it open. I hope this can be fun experience to take farming games into a more strategy/tabletop setting. Have fun!

Love it! I try a first play in solo mode, will probably play with friend to try with many farmers! I was wonder, there is no 5 for the Dungeon Keep. I assume it will be an event with Elvysshee, since only on 6 it happen, given 2 chances for the 3 options there. I also got 2 questions :
1. Is the golden fertilized good for one harvest, for one season or for the rest of the year? I assume it was good only for one harvest, but maybe I made it too difficult?
2. Can we buy more then one cow and one chicken if we have the money for it?

Hello! I have to say I love this game! It is written so cutely and well!

Thanks so much! Keep an eye out, it's going to my kickstarter backers first but an extended edition will be coming out Late March/April❤️

This is beautiful, its Stardew Valley as an RPG! 

Thanks for the love! I'm glad you enjoyed it. You might already know, but I am funding a fuller version of this on kickstarter. After everything gets sent out, I'll be adding the full version on Itchio for download, with the bonus zine on the kickstarter. I'm really glad you enjoyed it! 

I love the idea of this game so much!! Everyone I know is too busy to play any ttrpgs, but I'm gonna see if I can play this solo soon! ^^ I'll let you know how it goes!

Thanks! Let me know how it goes, I bet it works solo as well. I'll have to try that too ðŸ’•
