Cube Farm is the latest of CAG's "Hip Pocket" games, which include the very Clever Pipe Game, Agora, and Nexus. Cube Farm is a tile-laying game in which you try to place your employees' cubicles closest to the good stuff (snack machine, copier, water cooler, etc.) while at the same time trying to keep them away from the more annoying things (such as the receptionist or a VP). Points are awarded accourding to how close you get to the good stuff.
As for actual play.... Each player starts out with 5 cards. On each turn a player places a card and claims a cubicle. To claim a cubicle you have to be able to get from the cubicle to an elevator (one elevator is placed at the beginning of the game, and three more are available in the deck.) Once all the cards have been played the score is calculated. After a set number of hands the game is over. Highest score wins (natch.)
Overall, the game is pretty simple, as is the strategy. Ideally you want to put the good stuff close to you while keeping you opponent from getting close to the good stuff. Also you want to aviod being close to negative-scoring things, while also trying to stick the negative stuff close to your opponent's cubicles.
Cube farm is a pretty good game at a fair price. I'd rate it a 7.
