In the past, I've recommended All Creatures Big and Small plus the first expansion to couples who want to get into gaming. Currently ACBS is out of print and I'm wondering if Agricola: Family Edition could fill the same niche.

It looks like Family Edition offers slightly more replayability than base ACBS without the expansion, but less than ACBS with the expansion. As far as I can tell, there is no randomness in the setup of Family Edition, which seems like a missed opportunity to add replayability without much extra complexity.

Bottom line: Could two adult non-gamers get a dozen plays out of this?

I'd say yes! I bought it to play with my seven year old daughter, but lked it enough to play with adult, casual gamer types too.

Possibly - we've played it about eight times 2p and I think it's just about done for me. My wife's still enjoying it though.
