In Agricola (Latin for farmer), you're a farmer in a wooden shack with your spouse and little else. On a turn, you get to take only two actions, one for you and one for the spouse, from all the possibilities you'll find on a farm: collecting clay, wood or stone; building fences; and so on. You might think about having kids in order to get more work accomplished, but first you need to expand your house. Or maybe you should learn a new trade? And what are you going to feed all the little rugrats? Have the best farm and household at the end of the game to win!
