After doing some research I picked this up,at a local store. After some scary reviews about pieces being printed wrong, missing pieces etc I was nervous since the back of the x said 2011 but as tradition I went through all the pieces and there all there plus all look great. Have the metal pins too and not plastic.

Thoughts on playing this game solo and with kids if it works?

Definitely not a great game with kids. Solo would probably be good if you like playing "high score" type solo games.

The component issues were over-emphasized in many cases. I have the plastic pieces, and I couldn't care less about getting the metal ones.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Thanks, I like solo games when I have time. My daughter plays games such as KB,Munchkin, Zooloretto, TTR and tried Agricola once

Ora is more difficult than any of those games, including Agricola. The decision tree is absolutely enormous. When your daughter hits the point where she is okay with Agricola, then she'll probably be okay with Ora.
