Great expansion if you want some more depth in the game. This expansion makes sure that you choose a strategy in the beginning instead of adapting every turn. Recommended if you have +10 plays of the base game.
This expansion brings a whole new dynamic to the game of Agricola. Now it isn't the battle for wood anymore but clay Also the multiple major investments, the warming of your house and the special actions bring new strategies to be explored.
Only played variant 2, I don't think we'll play variant 3
