Mehr Ställe für das liebe Vieh


You breed sheep, cattle and horses and house the animals in stables, pastures and farm expansions and upgrade stalls to stables and Cottages to Half-Timbered Houses Phases of the game are Refill Phase, Work Phase with one action per worker and Round - each action can be used only once per round - as well as Home Phase and Breeding Phase of animals. In the Work Phase you alternate for turns and choose one of the actions depicted on the board for each of your workers, which you must implement: Starting player + 1 Wood, 3 Wood, 1 Stone, 2 Stones, Fences, Walls, Building Materials, Expand farm, Stalls, Feeding Trough, Millpond for Reed, Breed Pigs or Sheep, Upgrade stable, Special buildings, Breeding Cows and Pigs or Breeding Horse and Sheep.

In the breeding phase you acquire a new animal for every two of a kind that you already own, maximum 1 sheep, 1 pig, 1 cow and 1 horse; animals that you cannot accommodate go back into stock. To accommodate animals you may relocate them. After eight rounds you win with most points from animals, special points, farm expansions and buildings.

This expansion introduces one farm expansion, 27 special buildings and one stall/stable; for a game you randomly draw four special buildings from the core game and four from this expansion and you play with five stables and five farm expansions.

The accolade given for “Agricola Die Bauern und das liebe Vieh” can only be repeated here for this expansion, the wonderful introduction into the world of Agricola is expanded sophisticatedly, felicitously and makes the game more tactical, despite the random choice of buildings.
