  Agricola

Agricola


Winner of a Spiel des Jahres special award 2008.

Agricola is a turn-based game. There are 14 game turns plus 6 harvest phases (after turn 4, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 14). Each player starts with two playing tokens (farmer and wife) and thus can take two actions per turn. There are multiple options, and while the game progresses, you'll have more and more: first thing in a turn, a new action card is flipped over.

Problem: Each action can be taken just once per turn, so it's important to do some things with high preference. Each player also starts with a hand of 7 Occupation cards (of more than 160 total) and 7 Minor Improvement cards (of more than 140 total) that he may use during the game if they fit in his/her strategy. This amounts to countless strategies, some depending on your card hand. Sometimes it's a good choice to stay on course, sometimes you're better off react on what your opponents do.

Agricola can also be played without cards (family game) and can even be played solo.

Contents: 360 cards, over 300 wooden components, 50+ tiles, 9 boards, tokens, scoring pad.

Players: 1 - 5
Playtime: 120 - 180 Minutes
Ages: 12 +

Reviewer: Nikki Rohlfing from United Kingdom   5 Stars
As a euro gamer and fan of "worker-placement" style games, it's probably fair to say that I think this is "the best board game in the world". The game starts with a 2 room wooden house and an empty field in a pre-machinery era. You have 14 rounds to create the best farm possible. If there's something you could think of in real life that you'd do on a farm, this game lets you do it! Build pastures for various animals, plough earth for planting crops, expand your house, expand your family, improve the structure of your house, breed new animals, harvest the crops, buy an oven, manage all your resources, and most importantly, make sure you have enough food to feed your family or else you will be forced to go begging! This game works so well, with a "light" version for when you're getting to grips with the game or fancy less of a headache, or add cards from a (massive!) selection to make each game totally unique and more complex. This game has it all, and is backed up by brilliant pieces and artwork. Although the sheer amount of choices can sometimes give me a headache, I find it a very rewarding and immensely enjoyable game!
