Ligota – Print to Play basic edition




What is Ligota?

Ligota – Print to Play basic edition is an economic, non-violent euro game for 2-5 players. Each of them takes on the role of founder of a new village surrounded by dense forest.

Ligota – a settlement founded on in cruda radice with a development relief (free) for its new inhabitants. The name was popular in medieval Poland and comes from the Old Polish language. Written as “ligota” or “lgota”, it meant relief, i.e. the exemption of localities from taxes, so that they could develop faster economically. At that time, these localities functioned as today’s special economic zones.

Starting with a patch of cleared land, each village will gradually expand. For the time of the game years, players will develop their villages by building houses, workshops and public buildings. Firstly the village will expand by clearing more patches of forest, and later by replacing older settlements with better ones. As a result of this struggle, the founder with the most points at the end of the fourth year wins.

Ligota – Print to Play basic edition contains all the printable elements needed to play the game in both basic and advanced mode.


Each Spring, Summer and Fall players will send their villagers to gather resources, create goods, and use these to acquire special projects, that can be built in their village. However the forest is dense, and the space is scarse, so players need to carefully place their new buildings and try to expand whenever possible. Finally, every winter tests village’s stability, putting pressure on providing abundance of food. At the end of the last winter players will sum up all their points
