You might not think that farming is an interesting proposition, but it somehow created one of the most popular Euro board games. In Agricola, Latin for “farmer,” you grow your family, decide which crops to grow, and raise livestock. You also need to be able to feed your family so you aren’t begging for food. Now you can raise your own farm on the go with Agricola for the iOS.
Playdek, the award-winning, leading digital board game developer and publisher, today announced the launch of Agricola, the ultimate farming strategy game and a global favorite with hobby gamers for its ability to draw players into its simple, yet deep world of sowing and reaping. Available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Agricola tests players’ strategy skills by asking them to make choices necessary to build the most productive family farm.
To support the new game line and offer players even more options, this fall Playdek will also launch two Agricola in-app expansions — the Interactive and Complex Decks.
Based on the board game by the renowned German designer Uwe Rosenberg and Lookout Games, Agricola is a turn-based game suitable for families, as well as serious strategic players. Easy to learn, the app can be tailored for easier or more advanced play for board gamers familiar with the series. Its message of sustainable living is sure to appeal to all ages.
I have been messing around with it for the past couple of days and it looks like a faithful recreation of the game. If you have played the game and enjoy it, then grab your iOS device and grab it from the App Store for $7, with future expansions coming out for $1.
