Nearly a year after a tremendous reception at the 2007 Essen Games Fair, Agricola is finally available in English from Z-Man Games. This Euro-style board game, takes an unlikely theme, farming, faces players with a shortage of actions to develop their homestead, and mixes things up a bit with random job cards and item cards. The excitement for this game among dedicated board gamers is very high. And while some have scoffed at the theme, I think it’ll be an asset in attracting those less dedicated to a more challenging experience.
