Agricola (by Playdek) [Universal]

Bit of a shame not to see this released last night considering its been in review for over a week.

Cant wait for it though! Must say, the screen shots released look amazing and have captured the feel spot on.

Any other fans of this brilliant farming boardgame?

I too am checking daily for this game. I must admit, I've never played the physical board game even though I'm an avid board gamer. I'll buy anything from Playdek as their polish is unmatched, except maybe by BDG. This game looks right up my alley, I just hope Playdek doesn't hold on to it for too long after it's approved. Over on pocket tactics, they (Playdek) are saying the release is "imminent".

Yea, hopefully they put it out before the usual Wednesday schedule - if not, its pretty much nailed on for next week - alongside Warhammer Quest, will be quite the board game geeks week!

The physical game of Agricola is excellent - I love how you can play a solo game too, which is fun.

Agricola is one of my favorite games, but because of its fiddliness, doesn't get nearly as much playtime in our group as it should. This is going to be an instabuy for me as soon as it hits. I don't think I've ever been so excited for an app release as I am for this!

Yea me neither! Though I finally got around to putting my Agricola pieces into a hobby box that makes it more accessible.

I've never played the real game but it looks like it extends my favorite bits of Le Havre by having all sorts of roles and improvements to make each play through very unique.

Definitely looking forward to this. I can't remember if Playdek has waited until Wednesday for their other releases...I'm hoping they make it live as soon as it's approved.

I've also be constantly refreshing to wait for the game. Haven't been this excited for a release in years.

^This.... especially since typing "Agricola" in iTunes has shown it in the drop down list since yesterday.
