Greek publisher Artipia Games is partnering with Stronghold Games to co-publish the Fields of Green board game, releasing to trade in early 2017. This is just the latest of many projects between the two companies since their partnership began in 2014 (see "Stronghold Allies with Artipia").

The new farm-building game designed by Vangelis Bagiartakis (Among the Stars, Dice City) is set in the 20th Century with players taking the role of farm owners trying to expand their property and business. By managing livestock and facilities and adding fields and other resources, players compete with each other over four "years" of play, after which the wealthiest is declared the winner.

The game is still seeking funding on Kickstarter, and achieved its modest funding goal of $20,000 in less than one day. Currently, the game has raised $51,013 in funding from 975 backers (roughly $52.32/backer), with almost three weeks left in fundraising. There are no retail tiers for the Kickstarter.

The game will premiere at Essen Spiel later this year.

Earlier this summer, Stronghold released Artipia's The Pursuit of Happiness, a board game which saw success at Essen Spiel 2015 (see "Find the Meaning of Life in 'The Pursuit of Happiness'").
