Differences with the first edition:
We replace the cubes by animeeple.
We replace the seeds by vegimeeples.
We add boards for 5 and 6 players.
We improve the game board layout.
We add events, rodeo, water, horses and many other things
This is an exclusive standalone version of the game, which will only be produced now thanks to KS. We do not plan to make another retail version, but if we make it, it will be more expensive, and will not include the stretch goals rewards. If any retailers want copies of this game, please back this KS.
Mi Tierra Nueva Era is a worker placement and resource management game inspired by the beautiful Chilean countryside. Two to six farmers strive to produce, buy and sell the most goods, competing to become the richest, most successful landowner.
For the final rules we are working with Nathan Morse, who has participated officially in the translation and revision of over 250 rulebooks (and more unofficially). A native English speaker, Nathan has played the first edition of Mi Tierra several times.
Mi Terra was designed by Alberto Abudinen and Diego Benavente (firstname.lastname@example.org). They've been designing games together since 2007, and now have partnered with JcK (www.jck.cl) and the Spanish publisher Guerra de Mitos (www.guerrademitos.com). Production will be handled by Panda Games (www.pandagm.com), ensuring our backers that every aspect of the process is properly managed, as well as guaranteeing the quality of components.
Game reviewers in Chile, Europe and the U.S.A. consistently say that they enjoy both editions of Mi Tierra because of its multiple winning strategies, beautiful artwork, and simplicity of mechanics.
Rahdo: “Really solid game…Jen and I had fun playing it all the way through from start to finish…I am very, very impressed, the gamut of gamers this game can handle.”
Tom Vasel says : “Fast, simple, random (luck & cards), Agricola-lite (minus the card goals), almost on the same level as Stone Age…good for kids and adults.”

Jacob’s Comments: "Farming in games is nothing new, but what draws me to Mi Tierra is the level of detail to the whole farming process. It’s like what I imagine 4-H in a box would be. Not only do you have to do things like plant different crops, but you have to irrigate them, harvest them, sell them or send them to be processed. The game goes beyond farming though too and it allows you to enter rodeos (though I do wish the rodeos were a bit more involved). Seriously it is 4-H in a box".
Alexander Quarella: “Mi Tierra: Nueva Era impressed me for a very particular reason: think about the hardest German game you know; now imagine you have a magic able to turn it into a game suitable for everyone without losing his charm. This is Mi Tierra.”
Ariel Claure Terán - Collaborator: “The improvements in this new version integrate the original game with the expansion in an outstanding way. The new rodeo and irrigation mechanics enrich players’ experiences with novel options and necessities. I found the game very well balanced, allowing you to focus on something specific, or to do a little bit of everything with equal chances of winning. Replayability looks good too, given that many relevant aspects randomly force the player to adapt and play differently each time. In addition, it has rules that scale suitably depending on the number of players. All things considered, I think Mi Tierra: Nueva Era is a game well worth owning.”

Based on the feedback that we've received, we’ve made the following improvements to the second edition:
A revised rulebook, in English and Spanish.
More options: rodeo, water, horses, etc.
Faster games, limited to 7 years (rounds).
Additional winning strategies.
Check out the Mi Tierra Nueva Era rulebook to see how the game offers multiple ways to achieve victory. Inspired by Agricola and influenced by Pillars of the Earth, the game is set on a farm with multiple locations to place workers. We use dice and random events in order to add some luck, always present in real life.
Now we will have digital copies of the rules in German, French, Italian, Dutch, and paper copies of the rules in Spanish and English.
Find all Mi Tierra media on our website and join discussions about the game on BGG.
Following Jamey Stegmaier's advice (who has been very helpful and without whom we could not have done this project), we'll ship games in bulk to order fulfillment centers around the world to reduce customs fees & VAT, while keeping shipping prices low. Only once we've sent the game to all the backers we'll sell the game to the general public.
This game offers Chilean-friendly shipping, and we also have a pledge level for Canadian backers. FunAgainGames will help us deliver games to the USA and Canada.
Note: We do not have complete information on customs and related fees for Brazil and Russia. We are charging €50 for shipping to these two countries, and will reimburse any excess charges. If this value changes during the campaign, we will let you know.

Risks and challenges
Some reviewers and play testers showed concern about the replayability of Mi Tierra's first edition. We confronted this problem when developing the second edition by introducing new paths to achieve victory, new mechanics, new industrial developments, new C markets and new event cards. We've worked hard to balance the new components through successive playtests of the game, and we are convinced that Mi Tierra: Nueva Era is balanced, and much more fun.
Some of the information and images may suffer small changes in the final game; we would like to improve the game with the comments from this campaign.
Our other concern is manufacturing and fulfillment. We are working with Panda Games, a well-known board game manufacturer – hopefully this should alleviate the risks of undertaking a project like the second edition of Mi Tierra.
We are also aware that shipping worldwide is a very complex process: our box isn't small and we have a lot of components; that in itself will prove to be an additional challenge. With the help of Jamey Stegmaier’s blog (from StoneMaier Games) and the advice we’ve gathered from other developers on BoardGameGeek, we will try and make it work as best as we can.
Apparently shipments to Brazil may be late and have additional charges. We want to support our Brazilian backers, so if you have problems please contact us and we will do what we can to help you.
