We live in the foothills of Pirongia Maunga (mountain). We raise pigs and care for goats, chickens, dogs and cats. This morning when I was feeding our pigs, I began to think of the similarities and differences between raising animals and playing Agricola. For one thing Agricola is less tiring and certainly less smelly. It can be very difficult to feed a family on the land and Agricola does this well with beggar cards and other career choices to supplement the income.
If you feel like a chance to play on the land without the smell, have a go with Agricola. I’d recommend it.
Check out this list of Agricola products and similar games.
