This one I bought on sale in our local hobby store, it had reduced price as the box was slightly damaged which brought down the price 25%, which was enough to get a fair price for this game which I had been interested in for a while but always thought it was a tad expensive.

Caverna the cave farmers is a worker placement, resource gathering and base building game. You can play it solo against a specific victory condition or play 2-7 players competing against other cave dwellers attempting to get the most points. The game adjusts itself against the number of players taking part in the game with some boards with additional actions only being with x-number of players.

The idea behind the game and the rules are quite simple. You control a dwarf family, and over a number of turns you have to expand your cave, farmlands, livestock and food supplies. At the end of the game points are earned for various conditions. It is also a worker placement game with lots of planning involved and a TON of choices of what to do each turn. The main board has starting actions on which you can place workers to receive resources or build rooms/farmland. As the game progresses new additional actions are unlocked each turn.
