I recently picked up a copy of the game and it did come with the animeeples (although all the other components were normal.) I assumed that it was standard with the new version.

Many European editions have animeeples instead of cubes for quite some time now. With this change, there will be less people willing to buy the Goodies expansion. IMO, animeeples were the main reason to get the Goodies.

My copy is coming from Amazon tomorrow...Let's hope it has the new components. meeple
I think it is from Z-Man though, so I'm not sure what it will contain.

I got a copy with the animeeples in it as well. However my fences were much thinner than the fences of previous editions.

The goodies was a limited run iirc and if it has run its course what better way to sell the game then adding what i would assume is the most requested component/secondary market buy with the animeeples

My copy from Z-Man had animeeples. Purchased at Christmas

My Amazon copy had animeeples. And I adore them. For those looking at a store copy: It is very obvious at the top of the box that they are included.

This is semi-great news. Now if they would only sell the ani/vegimeeples as a standalone item. I already own the game, so I don't want to buy a duplicate copy of the cards and boards. And I don't care about any of the extra decks or themed boards that come with the goodies expansion.
I already wanted the animeeples, but to be honest, I pillaged the Agricola box to use the pieces for some game prototypes, so if I could buy just the new animeeple tokens, it solves two problems at once.

The picture quality is a little dubious. I think that first picture might be made in MSPaint.
That price seems a bit high. Mayday games used to sell one that was well recommended here that doesn't seem to be available right now. They have what appears to be the same set for half the price. But the bigger issue is that both have extra pieces, and neither has animeeples. I'd rather pay Z-man and get exactly what I need for Agricola.
In short, I want someone to cater to my exact needs at a reasonable price with immediate availability. Is that so much to ask?

A hundred plays of Agricola constitutes, at best, being played to minor discomfort. whistle

On the BGG website it shows 2 different versions for 2008(Z-man First Edition & Z-Man Special Edition). What are the differences between the two?

Just ordered Agricola off Amazon. It arrived today. It's not the edition with animeeples. I wrote Amazon asking them to indicate which edition the game is, because it's unclear from the product listing. No changes were made.

I'm sorry to hear. I also ordered from them and got the animeeples, which I feel adds to the theme ever so slightly.

You can order official ani-/vegi-/resource meeples and directly from Lookout. Total up what you're interested in, add in shipping from Germany, convert currency, and see if it's better to try to find a copy of the Goodies.
http://lookout-spiele.de/direct-orders/
http://lookout-spiele.de/Schaufenster/

It looks like for ~ $12.25 you could get just the animeeples, ~ $20.04 ani+vegi, ~ $22.63 ani+resource or vegi+resource, ~ $30.41 ani+vegi+resource.

If you bought all three, would it still fall under the EUR 3.45 shipping rate (less than 500g), or would it be EUR 7.00 (500-1000g)? I wish they would have listed the approximate weight on the site!

I have gone through Lookout to get a copy of the CZ-deck and am waiting on the turquoise and yellow player pieces that I just recently ordered. I don't think they ever replied to my email/PayPal message for the CZ-deck, but in less than two weeks it was sitting in my mailbox. I considered getting the resources from them as well, but I think I'm just going to find a box of Goodies for around $40 and cannibalize it for the components I want, selling the rest on E-Bay. Who knows - with the rate some of the individual components go for on E-Bay, I might be able to cover the entire cost of the Goodies!

Yep, I wrote them after a bit about my CZ deck and they did reply immediately to that (and the deck actually showed up two days later).

If you do go the Goodies route, please PM me about some of the decks! I really do not want to go through the opposite hassle (buying Goodies for the decks and offloading the meeples).

I did weigh the three bags together before posting the prices above, and although I can't remember the exact weight now it was somewhere between 200g-250g, maybe about 220g. Final weight would depend on what kind of packaging they put around them.

Postage is normally €3.45.
We had some delays lately due to our dispatcher being out for a while, but things should be up to normal speed next week.
