Uwe Rosenberg’s award-winning AGRICOLA: ALL CREATURES BIG & SMALL will soon land on your platform of choice 🙂
Developed by board game experts DIGIDICED, the game will launch on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 (Universal Windows Platform) — and will retail for $4.99.
In Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small, the player is the owner of an old farmstead with a bit of land. However, a neighboring farmer happens to have a competitive streak — so all bets are off! Whether competing against each other or CPU, players must use their wits to acquire and manage both resources and livestock over eight rounds — while attempting to strategically deploy buildings — in a mad dash for farm and fortune.
At its core, Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small is a competitive 1v1 ranch-themed board game. Like previous DIGIDICED releases Patchwork and Le Havre: The Inland Port, the game supports cross-platform multiplayer worldwide — allowing Android, iOS, and Windows players to challenge each other based on skill alone.
HOW TO PLAY
In Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small, each player has three workers that are sent to a nearby village market to acquire resources/livestock. Each of the 16 locations in the market serve a unique purpose — raising livestock, producing resources, or allowing the player to purchase structures. Players take turns placing their workers throughout the market, with each location only capable of supporting one worker per round.
Before players can start breeding animals, they will first need to make sure pastures are fenced. (No one wants their animals to escape!) Once fenced, each pasture can support two animals; special structures (such as a trough or stalls) can be purchased from the village market to increase the amount of animals each pasture can hold. Players can also buy additional plots of land to expand their ranch. At breeding time, all that’s left is to place two animals of the same species in the same pasture — and they’ll take care of the rest!
