I’ve mentioned before that I’m always interested in family games, as I have a large family. Mayfair Games has caught my attention with their release of Agricola: Family Edition. Now, I’ve never played the original, and might not in favor of this.

In the family game, a lot has changed, apparently. The new action on each round is fixed, and the stones and vegetables have been removed to simplify it. Now, there are buildings – that replace the major improvements – which score points for leftover resources at the end of the game. Furthermore, there are no building restrictions or nor player boards. Lastly, there are no negative points or point limits. Instead, each player scores for all he has achieved.

Overall, it sounds interesting – and if it’s as good as the original, it’ll well be worth it.

I’m co-founder and co-CEO of my family. I fell in love with modern board games through my husband-who introduced me to Wil Wheaton’s TableTop-and a few gateway games-Castle Panic, Ticket to Ride, and Smallworld. We’ve been playing ever since. I am passionate about board gaming, and try to introduce as many people as I can to it. I am a stay at home mom to my five kids ages 2 to 11. We’ve introduced to board games to them along the way, and they enjoy them as much as we do. When I’m not playing board games I love being outside- hiking, exploring, kayaking-pretty much most things-as well as spending time as a family unit.
