I see the reason Agricola is so well regarded, especially after grasping the idea that this is a game of maximizing efficiency. I love the aspect of increasing complexity by starting out a beginner player with the family game then progressing to the cards at the various levels. It also seems to be a different experience with each additional player. I anticipated the solo version, but so far, have been a little disappointed that it is more of a puzzle to see how you can preselect the cards and get the most points.

This game has some unique mechanics in it for a trivia game. I have a couple of plays down to get the hang of the rules. Now, I'm really interested to play more!

A nice light and quick politically themed game. I choose this one as my lightest weighted recommendation in the Campaign Manager 2008-1960: The Making of the President-Twilight Struggle "trilogy."

Does not scale well across number of players. Two player should only be for learning the game. So far, I have only had opportunities to play with two players, which we play as four logical players (each physical player plays two logical players) -- much more fun that way.

This is definitely one of my current favorites. I love the way the game ramps up. I also like to look at the game as building a machine and seeing how well it produces victory points for you. I am still refining my strategies, but I have yet to tire of playing this game.

I got this to increase my gateway games. I chose this edition over the others because I wanted something more than the base game and the passenger addition sounded interesting.

I really like this as a trivia party game. I like the fact that no one will probably know the exact answer, but you can bet on which you think is the closest or who you think can get closest.
