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 1.2.1
The PERFECT multiplayer strategy game
First off, thanks to the developers for quickly fixing the embarrassing buggy version. I've been playing for months now with no issues... Now if you've never played Agricola, it is by far the best deep strategy game I've ever found on the iPhone. It has a pretty steep learning curve, especially if you never played the table top version, but it is well worth the effort. Once you learn how this game REALLY works, you'll quickly see how deep it really is. It shines in multiplayer with all the decks in play, because the ways to win seem limitless and there are no unbalancing cards or strategies. If you want a game to keep playing for years to come, this is it!
Love the game so fix it.
I love this game. I love the multiplayer and I used to love the solo series but now there are a lot of bugs in both but it really has ruined solo series so much, it's not fun to play it anymore. Occupation cards you choose to keep in your series disappear the next round causing your strategy of building on occupations to mess you all up, and some of the minor improvements that are from the G pack can only be used with multiple players. Using the hammer card causes the whole game to crash.
Also, in the multiplayer game with the AIs, it's not uncommon for one to freeze and the whole game has to be forfeited. the hammer card also causes a crash when used in multiplayer games also.
Great implementation, but buggy
An absolutely fantastic app of a great game, but crashes/freezes way too often now. For example, if the AI builds the Acreage minor improvement (K deck), it will freeze at some point (when trying to sow, I suspect). It happens every time; now if I see the AI build Acreage, I will just forfeit the game.
Also as another example, in the G deck, don't bother building the Remodling minor improvement. There doesn't seem to be a way to return stables, so the card doesn't work.
Once you play enough to watch out for the bugged cards, the current version is playable and a lot of fun. Hopefully Playdek will release a fix...
