Winner of the 2013 Board Game of the Year from Pocket Tactics
Europe is recovering from some hard times. You and a spouse must grow your 2-room hut and empty farmyard into a productive farm. You must sow and reap, raise animals and expand your family in order to thrive. Europe in the 17th century: a tough time to be a farmer!
Agricola is a family-friendly strategy game. Simple to understand and great fun, Agricola lets everyone play to the end in a race to see who can build the most productive farm.
Easy To Play
Agricola is a turn-based game, played in six Stages and 14 Rounds. On a turn, players place a family member token on a location in town in order to collect resources or to take actions to improve their farm. They can get building materials such as Wood and Clay, plow fields and sow crops, or build fences to keep animals. New actions become available at the start each round and resources get replenished on any taken in the previous round.
At harvest crops are reaped, newborn animals arrive and you must feed your family. Growing your family gives you more actions but means you have more mouths to feed!
The player with the most productive and advanced farm at the end of 14 rounds is the winner. Victory points are awarded for the number of fields and pastures you have, as well as for crops and animals. Additional points are awarded for extension and renovation of the family’s home, for the number of family members, and for played Occupation and Improvement cards. Players lose one point for each unused farmyard space.
An award-winning board game and player favorite since 2007, Agricola is now available as a universal game application.
Brought to you by Playdek, Agricola establishes a new benchmark for iPad board gaming.

What's New in Version 1.1.1
A big thanks to all the Agricola fans who took the time to submit bug reports!
▪We fixed several rules issues related to the new I & K decks and their interactions with other cards.
▪We also fixed various AI crashes.
Great addictive to play with family/friends or solo
Does a great job of bringing the game of Agricola to life without the hassle out manually setting up the table top game! Graphics are simple but beautifully rendered.
Tutorial does an okay job at explaining the somewhat complex gameplay and rules. New players will likely still be a bit confused after the tutorial but a few play throughs together with some web searches should remedy this.
Can either play played together with family and friends offline or over multiplayer. Solo game is both challenging and addictive.
Impressed that the developers have provided a good set of features compared to some of the other board games in the store! Well done Playdeck. In app purchases now allow for additional decks to add longevity.
Great Game, Could Be Better
This app is based on the now classic German board game. I always wanted to try the board game but never managed to until this app.
+ tutorials help guide you (after a play through by yourself you will have the basics down)
+ you definitely get a feel for the original's game play and it's a fun strategy game
- if I could change one thing, please add a little pinch and zoom. The text is very hard to read on iPhone. My eyeballs are exhausted after a play.
- while I appreciate the work put into the artwork, the lack of contrast and outline makes for a very tedious visualization on the iPhone adding to eye fatigue. Individual placement "cards" are nearly indistinguishable in one mode and have tiny text in the other.
- the cost plus in app purchase decks seems excessive. Particularly for the iPhone as the above.
- I wish there was a longer mode option. 18 - 20 rounds would be fun to try.
Very polished and fun board game!!!
Everything in this title is terrific! They have been updating the heck out of it and polishing it up, too. Gameplay is fun. Graphics are rich, colorful and crisp. The audio is the same.
One big thing that I feel is missing is the ability to chat with other players. PLEASE add this!!
I do wish there were a zoom-out mode (playing on iPad Mini) as the scrolling is the only thing I find tiring here. ;-)
I also agree that it would be an awesome addition to implement a variant that has more rounds. While 14 rounds matches the classic original version, it does seem to abruptly end and would be a fresh pace to put all that progress on the farm and be able to continue it a few more rounds.
