Everdell is a game of dynamic tableau building and worker placement. This game was created by James Wilson and published by Starling Games in 2018. It is designed for 1 to 4 players. In this game, participants assume the roles of forest creatures who are constructing a city throughout the four seasons. They achieve this by gathering resources, enlisting workers, and erecting structures. Reviewers have highly praised the game, particularly its artwork and components.


Gameplay involves players strategically placing their animal-shaped game pieces (meeples) during the four seasons to acquire resources for purchasing cards that are added to their personal tableau. These cards contribute points towards winning the game and may provide special abilities for further development. The game starts simple but becomes more intricate as players' cards synergize with newly acquired ones. In addition to points from card acquisition, players score by triggering events, achieving special combinations of card types, and receiving end-game bonuses from certain cards in their city.
