I have a question about the extra little mini-boards that contain action spaces (e.g. "Day job" or the one with an extra "Wish for children" action.) I see that each of them is for a certain number of players, but can you choose to use them in any game? Or are they only supposed to be used if you're playing the simple version without minor improvement/occupation cards?

Here is the link to the Mayfair product site for Agricola, where you can find PDFs of the rulebook and the glossary:

The answers you are looking for are on pages 1 and 8 of the glossary.

Thanks - I'd read that but didn't find it quite clear. I'd guess it means they are optional for use in any game, except the "Side Job" one which is meant for the family version without hand cards. Is that right?

Yes, you're right.

Quick recap:

* "Side Job" board: optional, but suggested for what the Appendix calls Beginner's Variant without Hand Cards; nothing stops you from using it even for the full game, if you want

* the other two boards: optional, if you want to make your games a bit easier/different

Side note: just like the variants listed on Appendix's pages 8 and 9, no one will stop you from "experimenting" with these extra boards or even more tweaks... just enjoy the game
