App description: Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small is a digital adaptation of Uwe Rosenberg's award-winning two-player board game featuring farming and livestock breeding.

Youre in charge of growing a farm from its simple beginnings -- just a hut and some fields. Send your workers to the village market to barter for goods and livestock. Breed different animals. Eventually, with your ever-growing animal population and special buildings, youll compete against your neighbors to see who has the best farm!

You only have three workers in each of the eight rounds, so make your decisions count. Play against AI, or claim your plot on a worldwide leaderboard and become a strategy game legend.


KEY FEATURES:

1. Experience another faithful boardgame conversion from the studio behind Le Havre: The Inland Port and Patchwork.
2. Engage in exciting 1v1 cross-platform multiplayer matches against players from all over the world.
3. Focus on breeding the largest and most varied livestock.
4. Use the Playback feature to review your best games and learn new tricks from the pros.
5. Stay on your toes with challenging AI.

This is not as approachable as the other Digidiced titles, but still has the remarkable quality as those games. It strips out the planting elements of Agricola and focuses on the animal husbandry. The tutorials are enough to get going, but strategy will be elusive at first.

I always pick up games made by Uwe but seeing as I have Agricola do I even need this one? Wish glass road would drop been waiting for it for months and haven't heard anything in a while on it

Glass Road is already out, on iPad - has been for a while.

This is a much quicker game than Agricola - I've never played it before - but really enjoyed the games I played last night.

Yeah, Glass Road has issues, but damn, I got another Uwe game on my iPad that I was never going to get to play analog. It's a coffee priced win for me

I'm sitting on the fence with this at the moment, I think the devs are great, but I have Le Havre and Agricola.... Not been too tempted by Inland port or this (and the UI does look a bit busy... wondering if Lord Gek is going to comment on me saying that )? Anyone willing to persuade me to add 2 more board games to my virtual shelves?

It's Uwe. Enough persuasion yet? Actually after seeing how differently this feels from Agricola, I'm going to pick up Inland Port as well.

Just finish the tutorial and run a couple of games against easy AI, no game-murdering bug so far and I like what I am seeing.

There is a DLC/expansion with more animals and building available for another US$3.99.

Thanks guys no wonder I didn't realize glass road was out. I don't play games on an iPad at all. I do have a 6s plus which to me is damn near an iPad. FTL would be nice too but since I don't have an iPad can't play it either.
After really looking over this game it seems like it wouldn't hurt for me to grab this even though I have Agricola standard version. Seems like this is a quicker play version of it.
