Agricola is a German-style board game created by Uwe Rosenberg, and published by Lookout Games in Europe and Z-Man Games in the US. The goal of the game is to build the most well-balanced farm at the end of 14 rounds, consisting of plowed fields for crops and fenced pastures for livestock. The farm should have little fallow land and a large farmhouse built of high quality material. The player should also expand the family tending the farm from its initial two members to a maximum of five.
The rules of the game can be found here.
This tournament is open to all players, beginners and Agricola experts alike although we strongly recommend beginners play a couple of practice games to get used to the game mechanics before taking part.
– 3 Rounds
– 4 Player Games
– Rounds 1+2 Heats, Round 3 Final
