This expansion is quite a disapointment to me.

Artwork consist essentially in photos or reproduction of old paintings. So beside the fact that they have nothing to do with the base game style, most are plain downright ugly.

Most of the text found on the cards is unnecessarily confusing. Rendering the initial card selection/assessment phase a painful drag.

Finally, there are very very few occupations or improvements that are worth playing. Some of them will even severely penalize the player if awkward conditions are not met.

Bottom line; this extension is a waste of time and money. I would rather play with the family rules instead.

A lot of the cards make no sense themewise. All in all this is not a good deck.

Haven't used yet.

Used a few times for solo games. I feel that the cards are a little convoluted. But maybe that's just me.

Too convoluted. The worst of the expansion decks. Not really worth getting, unless you just have to have all the expansions. There are maybe a dozen good cards.

De nuevo, otro mazo de 60 oficios y 60 adquisiciones menores para conmemorar la edición de Agricola en un determinado país. En este caso, Bélgica. Las cartas vuelven a mostrar personajes típicos de este país. PROS: parece que en solitario, el mazo funciona mejor que en partidas a más de un jugador porque las adquisiciones menores son más fáciles de jugar y aumentan el número de estrategias posibles. CONS: de nuevo un arte gráfico que no tiene que ver con el original. Cartas menos poderosas de lo habitual, sin apenas combos entre sí, e incluso algunas tan inservibles que dudo que merezca la pena el esfuerzo de perder una acción jugándolas.

What I like: It's even more cards
What I dislike: Not thrilled at the inconsistent art from this set. Also, how many decks of cards do we need at this point?

Fits with the game better than the overpowered Netherlands deck. Some of the effects are so marginal that you'll wonder whether it's worth even playing the card. There are a few badly written cards which raised a number of rules questions in our games and it's disappointing to see errata already but all in all, it's a decent set of cards.

The cards from this deck seem to be much more complex than others and appear to be a bit weak. Definitely my least favorite of the full-size decks I've tried out so far.

A bit disapointed with this card set when compared with the previous sets.

IMO many cards look familiar and only a few of cards is interesting. There are a lot of cart title cards looks very similar.

Like many others, I am divided on the radical shift in art assets... cards are solid, though, which is the main thing to bear in mind. Theme could have been played upon a little more extensively, but... minor quibble.

There are very fun aspects in this deck, but it in general doesn't have too much apparent combos, complicated deck and lots of effects aren't very convincing.

Wasn't very excited about the cards here, in fact, found a lot of them rather lame. Some were worded confusingly (e.g., 6th Sense Academy). I love the theme since I spent a semester in Belgium and have been back to visit, but I can't say I'm in a hurry to revisit this deck again any time soon.

Solid expansion to Agricola. Card effects and card texts seem to be a bit on the complicated side, but that is probably normal for the umpteenth expansion of the same game.

A lot of the Belgium deck appears weak-to-middling at first glance, but there are a few nice cards buried therein, and it combos particularly well with some cards from the base set. Klemens Franz-art is far superior to classic-art.

I don't find myself overly excited by many of the occupations in this deck, but I really like a few of the improvements. Having played a game I can say that it's not groundbreaking, but more cards for an old favourite is a more than welcome addition.

At this point I'm not a serious enough Agricola player to make an informed decision about the strength of the cards, but I rate this an 8 only because of the card "Obedient Brother", featuring the Dardenne Brothers. I'm looking forward to seeing if there's anything similar in the France deck.

60 new occupations and 60 new minor improvements for Agricola. That much new content is always good to have.

All-in-all though I'm not that excited about the cards in this deck. The majority of them seem weaker than most although there are a couple gems in here. For the same reason I can't fault the NL deck for being more powerful than most, though, I can't fault this deck for being less.

The art is fine but like the NL deck I wish it was the same goofy art used on most of the cards.

Both the Belgium and Dutch decks add an extra bit of variety to the game and all of our group seemed to enjoy the added differences they made to the game. These wont be used all the time when we play but every no and then they will be used.

A mixed bag. Good cards are accompanied by the weak (questionable) ones. Some of them are also too sophisticated.
I need more plays (2 so far).
