Famine is the product of a sudden drop in production that depletes a surplus. Often associated with droughts and diseases, the population of an area exceeds the ability of that area to produce food.


The development of agriculture is directly tied with the arrival of the potential for famine. This card has no effect unless the Agriculture Sickle has been drawn. If it has, but the Food Preservation Sickle has also been drawn, players lose one token. If only the Agriculture Sickle has been drawn, players lose two tokens.
