The game allows you to freely perform tasks from farming to raising livestock, buying buffalo to marrying a wife to building a house, ... with mechanisms that cannot be more realistic. The process of becoming the breadwinner in the family has never been so vivid and real!
Agricola is a highly complex game, as it requires you to calculate a lot of things in one turn. Not only that, but to become a winner, you also have to be a far-sighted person, and must have a long-term strategy not only in this turn but sometimes in the next 3 or 4 turns.
But that's why it has a respectable depth and depicts most realistically and vividly the life of a real farmer. Who said manual work is brainless?
The time that you spend studying the rules of the game, and how to control resources to be able to master every stage will take a lot of your brain, but you will find it extremely worth it. It's not a game about farmers, it should be called a game "Learning to grow up".
That said enough for you to see the depth of it, and the aspects associated with our lives that the game brings to life are surprisingly realistic. After playing the game, I feel like I want to go back to my hometown to "raise fish and grow more vegetables" right away!
