If you think of WizKids, they are known for their games filled with theme. Lookout Games is known for their Euro games like Agricola and Caverna. Now these two seemingly incompatible companies have reached an agreement with WizKids publishing several Agricola products.
WizKids is excited to announce a new licensing partnership with Lookout Games GmbH to expand on their global hit board game, Agricola. The new product line (Agricola Upgrade Kits) will include new cards designed by Uwe Rosenberg and five highly detailed pre-painted figures for use with the Agricola base game. Each of the six expansions will contain figures for one player, and unique cards in each of the expansions.
“We’re excited to work with Uwe and Lookout Games to bring new content to the Agricola franchise,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “Lookout Games brings a legacy of quality, style and innovative game play to the table and we couldn’t be happier to enhance Agricola with detailed, pre-painted figural & gameplay content.”
“We’ve been wanting to do painted figures for the family members for a while now and thought it would be great to couple them with new content for the game. We’re excited to be working with WizKids to make this a reality,” said Grzegorz Kobiela, editor at Lookout Games.
Designed for 1-6 players, the revised edition of Agricola features all-wood components, new imagery and an updated card selection. The Agricola Upgrade Kit is great for both veteran players looking for a quality upgrade and new players jumping into the game fresh. Players can expect to find the new Agricola Upgrade Kits at their friendly local game store beginning in 2017.
I’m curious how popular these will be, but Agricola seems to be the game that keeps on getting upgraded. We’ll get to look out for these starting next year.
