It's currently between printings and out of stock most places or listed above MSRP on others. I snagged a copy.

Haha, I glanced this post while on my way to another thread and immediately hit the back button, came here, and ordered one. I've been wanting this game for a while. Thanks much, Dan.

Saw this and checked a few of the recent reviews on Amazon. It seems that for some recent recipients, the tiles have been in languages other than English. This gave me enough pause to pass.

Amazon has always been good to fix issues like this in the past. I have gotten a couple of non English games and they either let me return them or just keep them.

Wow, good catch!

For anyone on the fence, there are only 5 different tiles in the base game (one of them double-sided), with clear iconography and explanations for the tiles and board action spaces in the rules. Of course it's easy for me to say without being in this situation, but I don't think this would detract from the game. (If I didn't already have this game I might be tempted to get a foreign language edition just to add "character.")

Note: I would steer clear of any non-English versions of the expansions, though, as those have a lot more necessary text.

At this price, it might be worth the gamble. Plus it'll be kinda exciting waiting for my copy to show up, wondering what's inside. Haha.

I bought a copy of Edo off Amazon some time back and there was nothing in the description that it was a German language edition. It only said made in Germany. When I called customer service to work it out, the rep told me that I should have known based on it being made in Germany. I informed them that many designer games are so that didn't matter. It didn't get anywhere and I was stuck printing out my own English rules. Luckily the components are language independent.

Re: Agricola all creatures big and small 32.24 on Amazon
I've never played it, but bought it anyway.

I struggle to find people to play the games that need several people. I thus end up playing a lot of 2 player games with my wife. This will be a nice addition to break the 7 wonders duel, lost cities, sushi go, rotation we have now.

Thanks for the find OP!

Re: Agricola all creatures big and small 32.24 on Amazon
I am annoyed that the 1st expansion seems impossible to obtain.

I have the 2nd and the base game already.

Re: (Deadish, now 39.99) Agricola all creatures big and small 32.24 on Amazon
I'm glad I jumped on the deal earlier. Not that $40 is a LOT more than $32, but still something I'm glad for. It will be interesting if it's in another language... I guess I'll find out when it arrives!

I had a similar experience and then wrote that one star review people are mentioning here. Amazon then sent me a refund upon return of the game, but no replacement .

Yes, I am also annoyed at this. Would love to have both as the game is really fun with both.

Both expansions are in-between prints. I was seriously considering getting them in French, but they have more text than the core game, as someone already mentioned. I speak French, but nobody else I play with does.

I don't own any versions/copies of Agricola -


Is the above Amazon link for the first or second version? Also what expansions can I get for either versions?

Thanks for any help.

This is actually for the 2-player only game Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small, which is different than regular Agricola.

Will Mayfair print them to match the current Z-Man version?

I haven't seen any indication that the reprints will happen. Annoying, but not surprising.

We like but don't love All Creatures Big And Small so we never got the expansions but I've always wondered...could you just print and play? While they wouldn't match exactly, it seems like pasting actual size images on mat board would work pretty well if you had the images.

I think you randomly pick tiles, but I could be off on that.

The purist/completist in me would still not like it, though it is an option if I really wanted those tiles.

I received mine today and is the English version, with rule book in English but tiles in Dutch. Have any body successfully contacted Z-Man to get replacement tiles? I've read in the forums that they don't answer right away and I'm afraid that if I wait too long I'll miss the window to return my copy to Amazon.

Sounds like this is the fault of the seller. There is a Dutch edition and I'm sure that's what you received. Everything in the box is as it should be from Z-Man. I would first try to contact the seller and have them replace your copy with an English version (if possible). It's really not Z-Man's fault that the seller sold you a Dutch version.

That being said if the seller is no help then Z-Man may help you out regardless because most the components are language independent. So, it wouldn't be as if you would need half of everything in the box replaced. That would be totally at their discretion. Z-Man has excellent customer service and in my experience is fast to respond to emails. Of course, if they don't have replacement parts then there's nothing they can do. Which seems possible given the availability of the game is sparse.

I hope everything works out for you in the end! At worst you get a full refund from Amazon. Good luck.
