Seasons

Each field has a season, and this determines what actions can be taken in that field. Anything is possible in Summer, but you cannot sow in Autumn, harvest in Winter, or stockpile in Spring. The seasons change when the Illimat turns, creating new opportunities for each player. 

 
 
 

Luminaries 

Luminaries are hidden cards that can exert influence over a field. You never know what Luminary will appear when you clear a field... will the Rake steal your cards, or will be Maiden negate the power of winter?  Luminaries add color and complexity to every game of Illimat.
