Originally, this was planned to be an item for SPIEL Essen.
Fortunately, we got them early this time.

There are now 5 new Player Boards available, with different themes:
Spring, Autumn, Winter, Wild West and Mars.
(I'll upload pictures later.)

Front side has no storage help, flip side has the same (or similar) motive with additional storage help. That way we hope to accomodate both groups of players.

They're available directly from Lookout Games; no news yet if any other company will pick them up.

Hi Hanno,

Is there anything different about these boards, other than the themes? I assume they are the same size as the originals & have no extra rules?

Cheers,

Matt...

No, there is nothing new about these boards other than the theme.
Same size, no new rules, just new artwork.

Nice idea, but the box is already full as it is! For Essen, will you be producing a super-size box with room for all the expansions?

P.S. How can we order the new boards?

You can, but they're pre-packed in packs that have one of each.
That's how they look:

Hanno,

These look neat, and since they're for Agricola, I must have them. Will there be anything else on the website that we'll be able to order soon as well -- such as Die Moorbauern? I'd like to order as much stuff at one time as possible.

By the way, your email address still doesn't show on that order page. It says "Please do the math yourself and send me an eMail with your order to office@..." That's not really a good email address...

Die Moorbauern will be an October release for SPIEL.
We will have another pleasant surprise for you, but not until early August.

The set of 5 is about 400g, so it should be the up to 500g weight class.

Hanno, just one more question: are these new boards going to be a limited-time offer? I'm just wondering if I should jump on it today, or hold out for the "pleasant surprise" coming in August, as well...

This is pretty irresponsible of you guys, considering I've already put well over $100 into Agricola. You guys need to know when enough is enough, since you obviously know I lack the willpower to stop myself.

Set of 5 ordered.

Do you have Through the Seasons? When you play and the season changes will you migrate everything from board to board so your farm matches the time of year?

Huh. I'm seriously on the horns of a dilemma. I feel like I need to order none of these, or 5 of each season. You can't have adjacent farms in different seasons!

Hmmm. They look attractive enough, but "gilding the lily" springs instantly to mind. No offense, but they appear to add nothing to the game.

No - they are just something I really enjoyed... it was really fun to work on these boards.

Yes - they add theme - they add a persnonal style to your own farm.

Greetngs,
Klemens

We did a "limited" print run of five thousand copies.
I hope that we have enough even for SPIEL in October.

(And if they sell out, Klemens will be happy to design 5 new ones... or we will have other graphic designers take a shot)

Hey! I have 3 family-growth-things at home. I need the farm to feed them! (But I can name 5 designers I would love to see doing a farmyard) ;-)
