For Donnie’s birthday, I got him the long-desired board game, Agricola. So far, it’s proved to be the most pleasingly complex and entertaining game we’ve played. It’s like a board game with all of the expensive separate expansions included.
The most unique aspect of Agricola is that it can be played by 1-5 people. The rules and cards change as you increase the amount of players. And once we had the rules down, which didn’t take long, the actual game play moved along quickly. The game lasts 30 minutes per player. We’ve been enjoying it so far and finally had to clear it off the kitchen table so that it wasn’t a constant temptation to play either together or individually!
