A Vastly More Complicated Version of Settlers of Catan,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Agricola Board Game (Toy)
If you like games with simple game play and not much to remember or think about, stick to snakes and ladders. This is NOT a simple game. There are a lot of pieces and a lot of victory conditions. You need to keep a lot of things in mind all the way through. It's a great game though. Competitive, challenging and compelling.
The instructions aren't aren't all that great. You may find you need to get online and check out what other people have said to make sense of one or two sections - we did, and we're biiiig game players. Don't expect to remember everything the first time you play. It takes at least two games to get a grip on all the rules and goals. It's really worth the effort though, hours and hours of fun.
