Well, I am here to inform you we have reached and surpassed our preorder limit with a preorder count of 856 as of right now (9:20 am EST). Awesome! Thank you for your support.

So now what?

Ok, here's the scoop. The game will be printed. Work never stopped on the translation of the game, but now we have a clear goal to meet. So we are working diligently on all the translations, which then have to be proofed and reproofed, etc. We are also working on an extended and clear set of solo play rules which will be added to the rulebook.

This will take time of course and our goal is to have the game at the printers by mid-January. Barring any printing mishaps this means we should see the game in April.

We are going to leave the preorder window open until the end of the year. Those who preorder get a special
24-card pack of new cards as mentioned in my previous thread. As an extra preorder feature we are going to add animeeples: sheep, boar and cattle. So instead of cubes, those who preorder will get appropriately shaped wooden animals. (99%. Assuming the manufacturer comes through and the price is right - but if you preorder and it does come through you will get it).

To those who sent/will send credit card info - you will be charged when the files go to the printer.

I will post when the files reach the printer and production is under way. Also, any other news I get about the production I'll pass on to you as well.

Hopefully I left nothing out and this post clearly states all the information needed now. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks once again for the incredible show of support!

When I retired, I decided to explore the Seven Deadly Sins. Perhaps I shouldn't have started with Sloth. It's been four years and that's as far as I've gotten.

Awe, Zev... You make my day. Animeeples? YES! I can't wait until it gets printed. As a side note, I think I may be getting some Z-Man games for Christmas. Exciting! Thanks again for proving this community with a great new publisher that listens to the people!

Wow! 100+ more than the required preorder amount? I knew things would start flying when it looked like we were getting close, but that's above and beyond what I was expecting. That combined with the details on cheaper European shipping probably helped.

And with the announced animeeple preorder bonus (sweet!), I'm sure you'll see a number of additional preorders before the end of the year.

I can't wait for April!

Zev- Congrats on making the Pre-Order and you have just made my Hannukah! Animeeples also sound awesome and will add even more realism to the game!

But don't be fooled by the radio, the TV, or the magazines. They'll show you photographs of how your life should be but they're just someone else's fantasies.

I hope the Animeeples come through. To borrow words from a podcast: That would just add to the goober in the game.

Thanks to everyone who preordered the game early so that this product will be printed in English. Now I have another reason to look forward to the Spring.

Question, am I correct in assuming that there will be no wooden cubes what so ever in the pre-order verson and just the animeeples? Or will there be extra wooden cubes?

You should definitely consider picking up Primordial Soup, if you can. It is a great game, AND its theme also concerns hunger, feeding, and ...ehm ... pooing.

Thanks for the update Zev! I truly love this game, and I am happy it is your company that is publishing it. I am confident in the end quality of the product we will receive.

Now, any more info on those bonus cards? Are they going to be half and half Minor Imps and Occupations? Evenly distributed among E,I,K? Want to learn more!

I can answer that.
Black boars, white sheep and brown cows. 2 out of 3 will be new molds.

And they will be available through Lookout Games (and probably other localized lanugages), too.

***If the animeeples happen you will get no wooden cubes - just the animal-shaped wood. Of course all else wooden will be as in the original game (discs, fences, houses, etc.)

Thanks a ton. A 15 dollar discount and wooden animals.

I bet MeeplePeople.com will unveil an Agricola line early next year.

Oh, man. I had never preordered anything before, but now that there will be animeeples, I couldn't be happier that this was my first.

Is it coldcast wood ? wood injection? two-part quick-curing wood?

That is fantastic news, Zev. Thank you so much for the time and effort you and Hanno have put in to make this happen. And a huge thanks to the gamer community, both here at the Geek and elsewhere. Agricola lives! We are the 750!

And Animeeples! Talk about the icing on the cake! It's funny, even before I'd a chance to try the game, I used my Geekbadge to do a little subliminal advertising (and take advantage of the name's similarity to a certain soft drink) with a message of "Try Agricola!". Some of my gaming buddies kidded me that I was pimping a game I hadn't even played yet! But now, with this latest announcement, we have a new and improved slogan:

TRY AGRICOLA - NOW WITH ANIMEEPLES!!!

I am SOOOOO glad that I preordered. So, am I to understand that all orders after the preorder, and what is going to the retailers will be the normal wood cubes? That is a huge bonus for preordering! Maybe Valley Games should take note of this...
