Agricola: How to Play the Game

The game takes place in Central Europe, around 1670 A.D., when the Plague finally ended after centuries. The strategy in the game is, as a farmer, to upgrade and extend simple houses, gain animals and grow fertile fields. Each player starts with Occupation and Minor Improvement cards to use for strategy. The turn-based game consists of fourteen rounds in six stages, with a Harvest at the end of each stage. Whoever has the most points for the number of animals, farm expansions, and buildings at the end of the rounds wins the game.
