From what I've found out, there are at least 6 locations in the US and one in Mexico with the name "Agricola":

Agricola, Glascock County, GA
Agricola, Polk County, Polk, FL
Agricola, Coffey County, Coffey, KS
Agricola, George County, George, MS
Agricola, Amherst County, Amherst, VA
Agricola, Dadeville, AL

Agrícola, Castillo El, MEX

Here's the deal. For all of this locations, the first one who sends me a picture of herself/himself with the Agricola Game Box next to "the roadside sign with the name of the city saying that you're entering citylimits"
(Melissa says I should use the term "Sunnydale sign"), will get a set of Animeeples.

So there are at least 7 sets for grabs. If you find another town, city, doun or whatever with a roadside Agricola sign, I'll expand the offer.
(Street signs are welcome too, but don't win Animeeples)

It seems there is a "Valle Agricola".
Sure. You can score for that one, too.

Edit: There is also an "Agricola" in Katalonia. So why not travel to Europe?

Damn, there is no way I am going to be able to get to that one in Florida before anyone else. I would go this weekend, except I won't actually HAVE the game until it ships to people who pre-ordered.

Just a word of caution, based on 2 minutes of research on Google Maps, I'm not certain all of these places are big enough to have a road sign. Unless you live nearby or know the place already, I would recommend doing a bit of research before traveling very far.

I found Agricola, Kansas and Agricola, Mississippi in my RandMcNally Road Atlas.
If it is in there, it has to exist. ;-)

My Microsoft Streets and Tips shows that there's a small town named Agricola in Mahaska County, Iowa.

Cool idea, Hanno.

In light of the discussions of how to pronounce the name of the game, it would be interesting to find out how the natives in each of these towns pronounce where they live. I'd be willing to bet that the one in Georgia, at least, doesn't use the Latin pronunciation!

Well I only live about 48 miles from Agricola, KS. If I had my copy of Agricola, I'd go do it just for the sake of doing it, but my copy will be coming with the animeeples anyways.

so I figured out, the closest one to me is in Mississippi.
It would cost me roughly $85 to travel there to get this picture.
I think it would be cheaper to just order some animeeples.

If no one has travelled to Agricola, Kansas to accomplish the photo op by the time my copy arrives from Z-man, I'll go do it and have the meeples sent to you if you'd like.

So, I took a deep hard look at Agricola, FL and the likelihood of it having a Welcome to Agricola sign is pretty low. If I can show you a map that has a street sign called Agricola in the rather small part of Florida called Agricola can I get that instead, or is that part of the no street signs rule?

How about a Finnish Lutheran Church in Toronto, Ontario named Agricola?

I mean, it's a place of worship. Agricola's greatness was predestined.

Is there a way to know if someone has visited a particular location so that I don't drive all the way there for nothing? I. WANT. ANIMEEPLES.

I see the brilliance in this plan. Anyone who's pre-ordered it is unable to take the picture, but will get the animeeples in the box anyway, so people who have the game already are the only ones interested in the prize.

All the while, though, you make all of us who HAVE pre-ordered it even more jealous!!

Well, if you don't yet have the game but live close, can't you just print out a copy of the cover and stick it on another box? Should come through fine on the photo.

Right, and you could photoshop a picture of you on safari where you change the elephant to a picture of a street sign in some town named Agricola. Both of these are called "cheating".
