So who has got Agricola and when are you bringing it to Dockers?

It hasn't arrived yet. Doug has one on its way too.

Maybe if I grab some tanks from Axis & Allies it will be suitable for you Jeff 8)

I'd love to try out Agricola.

What exactly is the reason for all the buzz about Agricola? It seems like Caylus all over again to me.

I dunno; It looks kind of Roads & Boats-ish. I like non-interactive puzzle like Euros every now and then.

Christian, are we still on for Napoleon's Triumph this Thurs or will you be working?
Mind if I play the French this time?; I've got a few things I want to try that worked in Bonaparte at Marengo. haha

Well there is the farm animal miniature thread on BGG. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/242757

Maybe I'll do an army miniature version...

Ben, you're on for NT. No longer working late shifts - I'll be at Dockers every thursday. I'll take the Allies, no problem.

Yeah, I got it along with a ton of other Essen stuff I wasn't expecting. Frank in Essen realised he was into the next weight division and decided to fill the box with Essen loot for me (Cash n Guns Yazuka, Year of the Dragon, Time Control, Ponte Diavo, The Circle).

Agricola.... yikes. We spent 6 hours last night matching and shoving translations into card sleeves. I don't know how Melissa translated the thing, but we went crazy last night trying to match the hundreds of cards up.

I can bring it to Dockers tomorrow if people want to try it. We played it this morning - it's pretty good, but very Euro :)

Wow! 6 hours with English translations? That's almost as heroic as Ben making his own copy of Titan.

I'd be up for a game of Agricola.

Six hours getting it ready to play. The game itself took 60 minutes... it would fly 2 player once you've seen it.

Deal... you teach me 1960... I'll teach you Agricola. :)

Mud farming, woohoo! Is it more Euro than Roads & Boats Doug? I would be up for a game but I'm already playing Napoleon's Triumph.
