Description Edit | History

Description from BoardgameNews

In Agricola, you're a farmer in a wooden shack with your spouse and little else. On a turn, you get to take only two actions, one for you and one for the spouse, from all the possibilities you'll find on a farm: collecting clay, wood, or stone; building fences; and so on. You might think about having kids in order to get more work accomplished, but first you need to expand your house. And what are you going to feed all the little rugrats?

The game supports many levels of complexity, mainly through the use (or non-use) of two of its main types of cards, Minor Improvements and Occupations. In the beginner's version (called the Family Variant in the U.S. release), these cards are not used at all. For advanced play, the U.S. release includes three levels of both types of cards; Basic (E-deck), Interactive (I-deck), and Complex (K-deck), and the rulebook encourages players to experiment with the various decks and mixtures thereof. Aftermarket decks such as the Z-Deck and the L-Deck also exist.

Agricola is a turn-based game. There are 14 game rounds occurring in 6 stages, with a Harvest at the end of each stage (after Rounds 4, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 14).
Each player starts with two playing tokens (farmer and spouse) and thus can take two turns, or actions, per round. There are multiple options, and while the game progresses, you'll have more and more: first thing in a round, a new action card is flipped over.
Problem: Each action can be taken by only one player each round, so it's important to do some things with high preference.
Each player also starts with a hand of 7 Occupation cards (of more than 160 total) and 7 Minor Improvement cards (of more than 140 total) that he/she may use during the game if they fit in his/her strategy. Speaking of which, there are countless strategies, some depending on your card hand. Sometimes it's a good choice to stay on course, and sometimes it is better to react to your opponents' actions.

3 Thorf's Agricola Tuck Boxes
A set of tuck boxes for Agricola decks kept in hard sleeves. NOTE: These designs will be too big for unsleeved cards.

6 Agricola Score Sheet with Auto Score Calculations
A score sheet I have created with formulas for calculating the scores. All you enter is the number of fields, pastures, grains, etc, and the formula in the next column calculates the score for you. Makes scoring go faster! I tried to make it look like the printed score sheet that comes with the game as much as possible. Let me know what I can do to improve it.

5 Agricola scoring w/ statistics and ratings
Based on an Excel document originally created by Ravindra Prasad (and d/led from BGG), I have added statistics and ratings for each player. Not the greatest programmer so the macros may be a little sloppy but I think I've got them working. If you have any suggestions or functionality requests, let me know. I've used this to keep track of ~100 games with my friends and it's worked great. Instructions: 1. Enter the names into the 'setup' tab and hit 'begin game' 2. Enter the scores in the 'scorepad' app and hit 'copy scores to history' 3. In the statistics tab, hit 'update statistics' The first two macros were developed by the original creator of the spreadsheet. The last one is mine.

6 Etiquetas para partida familiar
Estas son las etiquetas completas para cambiar el idioma a Español de las adquisiciones mayores, las 14 rondas, y las posiciones iniciales para 3, 4 y 5 jugadores, usables para poder jugar una partida familiar. Las medí en base a mi juego en versión alemán, no las he aplicado a otros idiomas. El hacer las etiquetas para las barajas E, I y K es demasiado para mi. Las pongo a su disposición.
