Hi everyone! I've been willing to get agricola for some time now.

I've been searching the new version and I ended up here:

http://www.juegosenlamesa.com/todos-los-juegos/15-agricola.h...

But I've some doubts. The image looks like the 2016 version it actually say "This new version is for 1-4 players" (Esta nueva edición, más compacta y revisada, está pensada para 1-4 jugadores) but at the end said 1-5 players..

This little detail makes me wonder if is the new version or they just uploaded the new photos and description and it's the original one.

Any help in this regard?

It doesn't look like the 2016 edition because there are no animeeples in the picture of the parts.

From the picture that's not the revised edition.
It's the 2015 spanish version from Devir.

That looks like a mis-mash of stock images on the site. There are animeeples on the middle image.

The cover image is the 2015 spanish version: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameversion/301263/devir-span...

The text below indicates that they have the revised version, but the player count below hasn't been updated:

Google Translate (Thank you Chrome):
"This is a new edition of Agricola, a game that has won dozens of awards, including the award for best game released in Spain in 2008. This new edition, revised more compact and is designed for 1-4 players and includes new components and 120 cards to play with the whole family.
the players, from a small cottage, should work to increase the size of their farm, raise animals, and feed your family increase."

I'm fairly certain you'd get the revised edition, but I'd email them to double check to be safe.

If the picture of the components are correct, then it's the original version. The revised also has the Mayfair logo on the front.

I'm gonna have to agree that contacting them is the best option. I own the revised edition and none of those pictures match what I own. Box cover is different, there are now people and veggie meeples (the 2nd picture only has animeeples, and the board in the 3rd pic (where the action cards go) is no longer the separate pieces, but one big trifold. Fewer cards come in the revised edition (96 occupation/minor improvement cards).

Don't worry I would get the original version. It has far more content and I believe is far superior to the new reduced edition

I only wanted the new one because, in theory, some cards where removed because not too much usage..

But I think I'll end up with the original version

There are only 96 cards in the new box.

In the original there were over 350. Of these there were probably 8 that are overpowered and people remove. Then there are prob 20-30 that are generally poor under most conditions. That leaves well over 300 good cards people are always happy to play with - over three times the new game.

Without wanting to be accused of being repetative by some forum members as I have posted this elsewhere. The reduction in the deck is just a way to make more money by the publishes as they plan to sell expansion packs of 46 cards - they know that 96 is not enough.

The new publishers along with others promoting the new game have been spreading the rumour as if it gospel that the old revision was completely unbalanced and had huge number of cards no one ever used. You seem to have picked this up. It is not true. Trust me the original game is great

Yes. in fact that was the main reason, as I said

Yesterday I was giving some more thoughts regarding this.

the 1-5 players vs 1-4 + expansion for 5-6
The card thing.
The family mode being removed but will be available as expansion...

at the end I concluded the same as you said.

Now i'm searching for the original version

So thanks for your feedback!
