This game reminds me of Guatemala Cafe. Probably because of the randomization of the game board and the pick up and deliver system.

Finca is simple and delightfully frustrating. The neat use of a rondel, where each piece must move the number of spaces as the other pieces on that space, is unique, and even though it is a simple mechanic, it can sometimes be frustrating.

Finca seems like it would scale well from two to four players because the number of workers each player moves on the rondel varies based on the number of players. I would be very interested in playing Finca with three people because it seems like the desirable chaos of the rondel and the ability to strategize based on the available information would be optimized with three players.

The copy I played with had been pimped with three inch tall plastic donkey toys to replace the donkey tokens. It made the game a lot more fun.

This game surprised me. When I saw that it was about collecting and delivering fruit, the theme didn't exactly grab me. What did get my attention was the clever use of the rondel as well as how the tiles that you pick up are not necessarily going to help you in the region you are trying to get the finca tile from. Very neat and a nice surprise - not to mention it plays great with two!

This game is so simple but with lots of room for strategy. The rulebook did a good job of explaining what was happening, used very clear English and gave good examples. Fun game; would definitely play again given the chance.

Very light and short game. Perhaps a bit too casual for my taste, but I do enjoy the board art and quality components, so that helps get it to the table. I really like how quickly I can teach it to new players and non-gamers.

In the end, I wouldn't turn down a game of Finca, especially as an opener to a game night, but when compared to other filler titles I would probably choose something else.

I really like the player interaction in this game. There is just enough screwage that makes the game interesting, but not so much that you feel hopeless about your situation.

Psychadellic farming on a windmill and selling to the natives on an isolated island. Little do they know that there are far more efficient ways to farm than racing after windfalls.

This game is delightfully deep for how simple it is. Another rondel game, which I tend to enjoy. I'm going to have to work my brain around how best to work the windmill.

An unusual (and abstract) economic game that includes set collection, area majority and a rondel. Feels okay or good but not great. The game is an enjoyable race (of set collecting) even though a lot can change between turns and the movement on the rondel feels forced. The rules are simple and straight-forward, and there is a good amount of turn angst, especially when certain fruits are running low and might trigger a recall.

** UPDATE: I'm starting to sour a bit on this game (especially with 4 players). The winner seems to be decided more by luck & randomness than skillful play. Players must work together to ensure that no single player gets too many of the fruit majority bonuses and runs away with the game. This game has the simplicity of a gateway game, but I'm afraid that there will often be runaway leaders in games with newbies or inattentive players. Furthermore, the amount of luck in the delivery tiles makes the game less interesting for experienced players. **

TRADE DESIRE: low.

A great little pick up and deliver game. Components are top notch, the rules are simple and easy to teach, and the flow of the game just works well. There is a nice level of strategy to the game as well.
