This review is from: Agricola (Toy)
Farming in the wake of the great plague. Starting with two persons and great ambition.
This is a very balanced and competitive game without any random factors and suitible to all dedicated gamers. My wife dislikes any kind of wargame but this and Catan are the most addictive and played in my house. This is a game for serious gamers however, if you aren't a gaming enthusiast you should probably give it a miss.
In advanced play there is a random factor introduced and that is advancement cards, but the main play does not use any random element - which is important for German games.
The game is visual and appealing. As your farm grows so does your satisfaction, but always you must secure enough food for your family.
