What is Agricola about?
Agricola is a solo or up to 5 player game where players are farmers in a wooden shack with their spouse and little else. Players need to build their farmstead by sowing fields and raising livestock. This game supports many levels of complexity and is a turn-based game. There are 14 game rounds occurring in 6 stages, with a Harvest at the end of each stage. On a turn, players get to take only two actions, one for themselves and one for their spouse, from all the possibilities found on a farm such as collecting clay, wood, or stone; building fences and more. However, each action can only be taken by one player each round, requiring players to choose in order of preference.
Players can choose to have more work accomplished by having kids and use one of their 7 Occupation cards. Players win by scoring more points than their opponent, done so by strategic thinking.
