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.
Needs ios8 update
Great game, great app with two caveats: 1) needs an update for iOS 8, as it usually crashes when trying to reopen it after going to another app (-1 star); 2) has a terrible AI -- any reasonably experienced player can beat it almost 100% of the time as it makes terrible decisions like choosing 1 animal or 1 resource on a regular basis (-1 star). Experienced players will only find a good game by going online where there are many good players. Fortunately, the online implementation is excellent.
By the way, those who are writing that the game does not function right because it doesn't allow you to convert animals to food in the breeding phase are totally incorrect - the rules to the board game do not allow you to do this. If you do not have room to place animals in the breeding phase, you lose them.
The gold standard for board games on iOS
It just doesn't get better than this: the best euro worker placement game ever is on iOS and the implementation is pretty flawless. If you've not played the cardboard version, the learning curve will be a little steep, but so very much worth it.
It's tough to say enough good things about this app. The interface is smooth, and yet captures all the information of a fairly complex game intelligently. It's also beautiful. I even like the music.
Highest recommendation. I wish the AI was a little smarter, but it's still fun to play against the computer, you just aim to win by x points, since you're likely to beat the AI every time once you're proficient with the game.
Very fun and a bit addicting. Visually very well done. This game does have some complexity to it, so there is a learning curve. I read all of the rules and went through all tutorials and am starting to figure it out in the easier Family setting, will move on to the more advanced options soon. I have never played the board game version.
One thing, a couple of reviewers claim there is a bug regarding converting animals to food, this is not true. The rules clearly state that after animal breeding you are not able to convert extra animals to food, they run away so you will lose them.
