G Deck available now to play with!! (English and German translations available for this deck at this time)
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 1.2.2
* Fixed a crash in the AI
* Fixed various rules issues with the G deck cards
* Fixed a graphical issue with the card trays on iPhone devices
I'm giving this app 5 stars despite some recent bugs with the G deck (that have improved with recent fixes and I trust playdek to support this great game). I love Agricola. This app captures the feel of the tabletop version and allows you to really see the underlying strategies without having to mess with the little bits on the table. I pretty much always have an online game going (or two) and this app is my go-to when I have a few minutes or longer to kill on some brain-burning farming fun. Brilliant port of a brilliant game, new deck additions keep things fresh and i think I'll be playing this until I'm old and gray and have played "family growth" a few times IRL. Happy farming
Great, but noticing some inconsistencies
I love this game so much, I play it almost every day. Today, I lost to one of the AIs so I decided to look back on the moves it made to try and improve my own game. What I found was a bit troubling. Its first moves were as follows: take 2 building resources (stone, reed) take 2 wood, take 2 building resources (stone, reed), starting player, take 2 wood, build rooms. Now, at this point it would only have 4 wood and 2 reed, whereas to build a room it would need 5 wood. However, the system showed that it did in fact build a room. I went back and checked it several times and those are the facts. I find this upsetting and hope this problem can be fixed.
Great way to learn Agricola
After trying to play the actual board game Agricola once with friends, we found it interesting but also cluttered, and a little time consuming to replenish the spaces.
Furthermore, the rules are a little confusing if you don't have a veteran explaining it to you.
I downloaded this app afterward, and really liked the built in tutorial. It's great for really getting to understand the mechanics and dynamics of the game, and help you build strategy. As an app game it goes so much faster than a game against humans and so it's not as draining.
As a noob, it was a little frustrating at first to lose against the computer all the time, but now I am winning a bit more.
I would now feel much more confident to play the game in person, which is ultimately the way board games like this are supposed to be experienced.
App design and gameplay is nice for the most part, and I haven't encountered many bugs.
