Agricola - Board Game Review (kinda)

The Photoshop Grass Brush was
used to illustrate the sheeps fur...
need I say more? 

Supposedly this game Agricola is really fun to play.

The Simpsons, Stonecutter meeting mocking the Masons.

I couldn't get past the initial set up and the lengthy instruction manual. I'm guessing it's like a secret Stonecutter thing. IF, you know how to pronounce Agricola correctly, then you MIGHT be invited to play a round with someone "in the know". Only then will you learn how to properly setup the multiple gameboards and if you still have stamina left, play the game.

The artwork, as with some other popular strategy boardgames on, is shoddy at best. Take a look at: "Social Climber" and "Village Elder". 

< How can they get away with such blatant rip-offs?

The guy on the left is obviously Gaston from Disney's Beauty and the Beast and the guy on the right looks like a Hayao Miyazaki character, from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.
