Agricola is a multi-award winning board game designed by Uwe Rosenberg and published in 2007. The game has won many distinctions and honors including Board Game of the Year in 2013 from pockettactics.com, winner of "Best Complex Game" at the 2008 Spiel des Jahres as well as an extended stint as the number two greatest board game of all time on boardgamegeek.com.

In the game Agricola you play as a husband and wife team running a small European farm. You and a spouse must grow your two room hut and empty farmyard into a productive farming operation. The game is turn based and plays out in six stages and 14 rounds. Agricola is a euro-style worker placement game in that each turn you place a family member on a space in town to gather resources to allow you to sow fields, build animal containments, and other farm related activities. New actions become available in subsequent rounds that allow you to grow your family and expand your farm. As your family and livestock herds grow you must continue to generate food resources to feed them. 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.

The digital adaptation of Agricola comes to us from renowned developer Playdek Games Inc. who are widely recognized as one of the top companies making board game app conversions. The game features excellent graphics and sounds and a clever implementation of the original board game's multiple play boards. Both live and asynchronous multiplayer modes are included as well as single player modes against ai opponents and several interactive tutorials. Multiple card deck expansions from the original board game are also available in game as in-app purchases for $1.99 each.
