Quickview Board GamesOn the wave-battered coast of the North Sea, hard-working folk make a living by the sweat of their brow. Under constant threat of storm and flood, communities rally together to build dikes that keep the rising water at bay. But every citizen constructing a dike is one fewer citizen tending flocks and maintaining the family farm. In Lowlands, you must carve your farm out of this rough landscape while also working with your rivals to ensure the safety of all. Each player receives a pool of farmers that can be assigned to complete tasks such as buying sheep or constructing farm expansions. To get the most out of them, you must think strategically, customizing your farm to become as efficient—and profitable—as possible. Ultimately, you are free to pursue whatever strategy you see fit, building a farm that is uniquely your own.
