Villagers by Sinister Fish Games

A while ago I created a logo for Sinister Fish a games publishers founded by my friend Dave Clarke, who I know from way back in the days of playing in bands.

Dave recently very kindly hooked me up with a copy of the last game as well as a very swanky Sinister Fish logo coffee mug and promo bits.

It’s always a cool feeling to hold something featuring your logo or design work but this is the first time I’ve had my work on a game like this – I have to say the overall package is very, very satisfying.

The game is designed and wonderfully illustrated by Haakon Hoel Gaarder and sees you as a founder of a new village during the middle ages, in the years following a great plague.

There is a solo mode but I haven’t quite had the time to delve into it properly yet. I’m still in the stage of admiring all the cards and pieces and playing Scrooge McDuck with the coins.

I do play board games from time to time (currently in the middle of the Tainted Grail campaign) but haven’t been able to meet with the guys I play with for a number of months due to the pandemic. At some point we’ll hopefully be able to try out Villagers and see how we get on.

Sinister Fish’s lastest game STREETS, also by Haakon Hoel Gaarder, is on Kickstarter right now. It’s absolutely smashed it’s funding goal already – go check it out!
