Agricola (revised edition)

(1 customer review)


Central Europe, around 1670 A.D. The Plague which has raged for centuries has finally been overcome. The civilized world is revitalized. People are upgrading and extending their simple wooden houses. Fields must be plowed, sowed, and harvested. People are living off millet gruel, bread, and vegetables. The famine of the previous years has also encouraged them to eat more meat (a habit that we continue to this day as our wealth is growing). In the end, the wealthiest player wins. Interestingly enough, animals that you do not eat contribute to your wealth. And now: off to the pastures, off to the stables: life at a farm never has been as exciting!


Agricola is an award-winning worker placement, resource building, card drafting game for 1-4 players.

This Agricola base game is a revised edition of Uwe Rosenberg’s celebrated classic. The game features improved all-wood components and a card selection from the base game as well as its expansions, revised and updated for this edition.

Players begin the game with two family members and can grow their families over the course of the game. This allows them more actions, but remember, you have to grow more food to feed your family as it grows! Feeding your family is a special kind of challenge and players will plant grain and vegetables while supplementing their food supply with sheep, wild boar and cattle. Guide your family to wealth, health and prosperity and you will win the game.

    Builds slowly into complexity, which I like. It means you can pick things up as you go. There’s multiple routes to victory, which I like, and you don’t get punished too much for making poor choices early in the game.
