See? Someone just had to rate Agricola a "1" and now it's back to second place. Way to go. I hope you're satisfied. You just couldn't have Puerto Rico in second place could you. I mean really. Just because Puerto Rico has been around longer. I mean the games are pretty much the same, There's people on each box cover, some buildings.
One has settlers, the other farmers (in Canada that's the same thing).
Both have Mayors. One has stone, the other - quarries. One has clay, the other - tobacco (they taste the same). One has reeds, the other - corn (close enough).

Both have roles you can choose. One has sheep, the other - ships. You get a nice hat with one, the other has a great pitchfork.
They're the same. Get over it.
The only difference, and why Agricola should be number one is this:
It's got carrots.
Bugs bunny would be proud....

I did my duty and rated Agricola a measly 6. Viva Puerto Rico!

Boy, you really showed them by making another goddamn thread about this.

The people who make threads whining about stuff like this are just as bad as the people who make the fake ratings. shake

But slightly better than the people who whine and curse about what they could very easily ignore. Only slightly though, say less than the difference between Agricola and Puerto Rico's ratings.

Or just the opposite, those so engrossed that they make shill accounts to rate a game a 10 to boost it over the top...

Or countless other ways.

I think Aldie should "accidentally" lose all the data in the ratings database.

Just to see what people really think about games.

I hope (carrots) everybody knows I'm just (carrots) kidding right? I (carrots)love both games - don't really (carrots) care which one (carrots) is (carrots) #1....
