Hello fellow farmers, I need a new game to play on my phone when travlling, to put this in to perspective i fly maybe 2-3 a week so i need to be kept busy. I was looking at Agricola for my iphone and wanted to know how it handles as in is the screen too small etc, does it lag etc

I look forward to your comments, cheers

It works well enough though:

* The small text on some cards is hard to read.
* The complex cards can crash it when playing 4-5 AIs.
* I like using the solo-series.


I'm no where near real 'gric fans' abilities

I've never had any issues with it. It's a really good implementation. If text is too small, just double-click and it comes front and center.

I highly recommend it for travel. Flight time will fly by (pun intended).

It is a great implementation of Agricola. The main drawbacks are that there is no Farmers of the Moor and the computerised opponent is really bad at playing the game. Playing asynchronous vs real people works great!

I think it's well done. Cute graphics, and it plays well enough. The AI is not very good, but it's a tough game so what can you ask for?

I think it's definitely worth paying extra to get all of the cards, especially if you ever want to play against live opponents.

Same with me, tapping on things that are hard to see will make it easy to read.

I've played a ton on iPhone, asynchronously vs. real opponents I've never had any problems, have had occasional frozen games vs. AI in 4-5 player games.

Highly recommend the app to anyone who likes the game and plays games on their phones.
