Agricola's cooler younger brother. The ultimate game to duel with. That said, only complete with an expansion pack to introduce variety. This is the game for me.

Outstanding 2-P game! This and Morels both came out in 2012 and I predict both will eventually become classics. Both are rated a 10 for us. If you play a lot of 2-P games, you must get both of these.

ACB&S shows that Rosenberg is back on track for those of us who like smaller games with a good dose of tactical play. We don't like games that last 2+ hours so have had no interest in his recent lengthy offerings.

ACB&S has plenty of tough decisions along with different winning strategies. You never have enough time to do even half of what you would like, so take your losses and maximize your strengths. It's a highly enjoyable but tense game and my wife loves it.

She even read over the rules before and after our first few plays. In over 4 years of gaming she has NEVER done that before. This gives a clear idea of why this game is a 10 for us!

UPDATE: We have played this game every day for the past week. My wife talks about it during the day and is striving to learn which tactics work best. No other game has ever received such attention from her! Wow, what a game!

Absolutely love it so far. Was initially a little worried that this game would become repetitive, but so far we've been trying different strategies each game and it doesn't seem repetitive at all. It definitely has that Agricola feel, but a game lasts about 20 minutes and set up is fast. I think an expansion with more special buildings and maybe some cards (like occupations or minor improvements) would really make this one of the best two player games out there for years to come.

Update: Not long after I got the game they announced an expansion. I'm still loving the base game, but the expansion looks like it will be a must-buy. I can't wait.

Excellent worker placement game for 2 players!

It gives a full worker placement experience for two players in a short time.

I'm a huge fan of 2 player open information abstracts. This game has that same feel along with theme and mechanics from my favorite heavy game Agricola. That combination makes this game a 10 for me, especially with the 2 expansions.

My wife and I thought at first that this was going to have low replayabilty but after several plays we see this is not the case. And with the expansion (i dont list my expansions as owned) its replayabilty just keeps growing.

A small version of Agricola, much faster but very nice. A game for 2 players, we also have the expansion for more choices in the building. Every player chooses 3 actions each round (9 rounds). At the end, you count the number of animals, of fields, of building etc. a Small rich and nice game.

2 player Agricola, but about 30 minutes long and you don't have to feed your people. Still retains that feeling of having too many things to do, but not enough time feeling. Lots of decisions to make for a short game. Great! Terrific components and compact design A+. Really a perfect game for my wife and I.

Would definitely recommend the first expansion to add replayability. I'm not sure the second expansion is necessary though.

Great little game packed into 30 minutes. Hard to figure out. I've got really good scores, then I cant figure out how I did it to do it again. A great little puzzle with plenty of interaction. My wife loves it. The expansion gives it enough variability to give it a long life too.

- Excellent 2p worker placement game.
- Components and art are top notch, love the animeeples.
- I enjoy seeing what our farms look like after the game, we always have a story as to what kind of farm we created.
(I always feel bad having 10 sheep crammed into a stable).
- The expansion buildings really make you think outside of the box as you plan your farm.
- 30 minute play time packed with strategy.
- Extremely high replay value once you add the expansion buildings (I can't believe we've played this 50+ times).

Very good destilation of Agricola. Tight and engaging game in 30 min. I have only played the basic game and there is a lot of room for competition and variation. I am planning to get one of the expansions. Since I have only done that with very few games, it can be considered a very good signal. Rating may go up.

Update: Rating went up and I got the first expansion. These small tiles bring a lot of variation to the game. Great small game.

A great 2 player game that takes the most fun aspects of Agricola and removes the brain-burn / stress-inducing harvest mechanic.

great for animal lovers and an ideal length for a rewarding 2 player experience.

The best two player game I have played yet, all things considered. And I have some great two player games! Takes the pain and suffering out of Agricola (which was actually fun), and some of the brain-melting choices, and leaves only the shiny fun bits. And it looks lovely. And is in a small, portable box. And doesn't take long. If you only have one other player, it is a must.

Wow, I play this game with my six year old daughter and we both love it. Fantastic game! Portable, fast, stressful (but not as bad as big agricola), and fun. My son likes to come up and arrange the pieces when we play and build a little farm off to the side. Expansion is a must.

I love how much more streamlined this is compared to Agricola. I think if someone was new to worker placement games, learning this first would make learning Agricola a lot easier.

Agricola: Quicker and Better.
This game feels like a race. You have to get the most animals in a relatively short number of turns. When my fiancée and I play this it is a really quick paced fun little game. Meatiest small box game I have ever played!
So much bang for your buck!

Fantastic game for two players. Expansions really increase the playability of the game. What seems easy as first becomes more challenging as you realize there are limited numbers of rounds and the opposite player may mess up your strategy.

I use the expansion when I play because I already own it, but I don't think it really adds enough to justify buying it. The expansion would make more sense if the game went a few turns longer.
