Board Game Gumbo: Review of Everdell, Everdell: Pearlbrook Expansion

Board Game Gumbo: Review of Everdell, Everdell: Pearlbrook Expansion

From the moment you open up Everdell’s collector’s version one thing is apparent – this game is beautiful, from the anamorphic meeples to berries with the texture of rubber. Everdell has one of the best table presences from a board game that I’ve ever seen. Does Everdell, and the new expansion, Pearlbrook, have the game play to match the beauty within the boxes?

Let’s find out.

(Note: Starling Games was kind enough to send Board Game Gumbo a review copy of Everdell and its brand new expansion, Everdell: Pearlbrook.)

Everdell is a worker placement, card tableau building game in a woodland critter setting. Published by Starling Games in 2018 after a successful Kickstarter, the game is designed by James A. Wilson, with art by Andrew Bosley and Dann May.
