Well-thought out game

We've really enjoyed this new addition to our games collection. It took a while the first time to get our heads around it, but after the first game we had it sussed. It's a good combination of different ideas - working placement, special powers on cards, & engine-building. Each game is different due to the large selection of cards. The design and meeples are great too!

Excellent game - complicated and fun to be interesting for many re-plays. Excellent service from Thirsty Meeples, as ever.

Top Class

Played this game hundreds of times and it's simply brilliant. Each game plays differently because of the cards you are dealt, using the draft system we have found this balances any potential uneven cards draws. The food engine mechanic is so brilliant in stopping a run away leader, and the cards while important to strategy don't predetermine the winner.

OVERVIEW

InAgricola, you're a farmer in a wooden shack with your spouse and little else. On a turn, you get to take only two actions, one for you and one for the spouse, from all the possibilities you'll find on a farm: collecting clay, wood, or stone; building fences; and so on. You might think about having kids in order to get more work accomplished, but first you need to expand your house. And what are you going to feed all the little rugrats?

Agricola is a turn-based game. There are 14 game rounds occurring in 6 stages, with a Harvest at the end of each stage (after Rounds 4, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 14). 
Each player starts with two playing tokens (farmer and wife) and thus can take two turns, or actions, per round. There are multiple options, and while the game progresses, you'll have more and more: first thing in a round, a new action card is flipped over.
Problem: Each action can be taken by one player each round, 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/she may use during the game if they fit in his/her strategy. Speaking of which, there are countless strategies, some depending on your card hand. Sometimes it's a good choice to stay on course, and sometimes it is better to react to your opponents' actions.
