App description: I & K Decks available now!!
Winner of the 2013 Board Game of the Year from Pocket Tactics

Europe is recovering from some hard times. You and a spouse must grow your 2-room hut and empty farmyard into a productive farm. You must sow and reap, raise animals and expand your family in order to thrive. Europe in the 17th century: a tough time to be a farmer!

Agricola is a family-friendly strategy game. Simple to understand and great fun, Agricola lets everyone play to the end in a race to see who can build the most productive farm.

Easy To Play
Agricola is a turn-based game, played in six Stages and 14 Rounds. On a turn, players place a family member token on a location in town in order to collect resources or to take actions to improve their farm. They can get building materials such as Wood and Clay, plow fields and sow crops, or build fences to keep animals. New actions become available at the start each round and resources get replenished on any taken in the previous round.

At harvest crops are reaped, newborn animals arrive and you must feed your family. Growing your family gives you more actions but means you have more mouths to feed!

The player with the most productive and advanced farm at the end of 14 rounds is the winner. Victory points are awarded for the number of fields and pastures you have, as well as for crops and animals. Additional points are awarded for extension and renovation of the familys home, for the number of family members, and for played Occupation and Improvement cards. Players lose one point for each unused farmyard space.

An award-winning board game and player favorite since 2007, Agricola is now available as a universal game application.

Does anybody know how to delete or rename the default "My Profile" profile!?! Every time I try to do it, it tells me that it can't delete an active profile and then cleverly re-selects it as the active profile over my previous active profile.

Finally took the time to learn this game enough to successfully complete a Family Game, and I am definitely enjoying it. Still can't figure out why I can't renovate, though...

I can't recall about profile but I believe I had a similar issue when buying it at release. I am pretty sure I created a new one then deleted the "My Profile" one.

Also if you are trying to renovate you need enough supplies for each room. Make sure you have enough resources to renovate all your rooms since you must do them all at once.

The game does take a bit to get use to, personally I think learning the game by playing the actual board game would be far easier. Then again the same could be said about most iOS board games.

Must be a bug, because after repeated attempts on one device I was able to delete it, but so far no luck on my Mini.

Thanks for the info on renovation; that was my problem, exactly. The card lists the cost of renovating a single room, not your entire house.

I'm slowly learning this game by playing Family Games with no opponents, and it's surprisingly fun. Once it gets boring (one full game so far), I will know its time to add opponents.
