I had the chance to play Finca at Origins Game Fair this year, and it was the best one I played there. Finca is a game about gathering and selling fruit on the island of Mallorca. Not really a heavy theme, but fun. It comes with very good quality components. Good, sturdy game board and card board tokens, AND very cool wooden fruit pieces. It uses a rondelle system of gathering fruit. A wheel with fruit on it, your movement around the wheel, AND how many fruit you gather is determined by the number of workers on the section of the wheel. So if you are on an Orange section with 3 workers (1 for you, and 2 other worker pieces) you'd get to move ahead 3 spaces. If you land on an Olive section with 1 other worker already on it, you would then collect 2 olives. You collect donkey carts along the way, which you'll use to ship your fruit to collect point tokens. The player with the most points wins! There are also some bonus tokens which allow you to break certain rules.

As the title says, this is a great game for anyone. Its easy to learn and to teach to new players, which makes it ideal for family. Plus its just plain fun. There is plenty of strategy here too. For instance, when to go after certain point tokens, how to set up the rondelle to accomplish the movements you want to maximize your points, and of course; how to keep your opponents from setting themselves up. So if you get a chance to play, definitely check it out. I'd say this game fits into the light to midrange strategy category, depending on the players involved. And would be a hit with players who like games like Carcassonne, Settlers and Ticket to Ride. (And those who like more advanced games too)

Have fun!

I just counted--we have over 60 games. However, the one that gets played the most is now Finca. The description of the game as one in which you collect and sell fruits didn't appeal to us at first but I fell in love with it after playing a friends' copy. The "fruits" and all other game pieces are wooden, giving the game a nice feel. The gameplay is fairly simple--you can choose between moving one of your pieces and collecting fruit or delivering your fruit to different parts of the island to collect points. The fun is in the multiple levels of strategy--movement and fruit collection is determined by the current placement of yours and other players' positions, not by dice. Thus, planning and strategy is important if you wish to collect the fruits that you want. Next, delivering fruits allows you to compete for various types of bonus tiles in addition to the points you obtain for delivering the correct type of fruit on the island. The result is a game that is relatively quick to play, has several layers of strategy, and is simple enough for almost anyone to learn.

Gorgeous reprint of a fun game. I have just this past year adopted board gaming as a hobby. I was afraid this game might be too simple (no children)) but, fortunately, I was wrong. It is a great family game, but has enough to it to interest more seasoned gamers. You can play as soon as you open the box and get the pieces punched. The rules are simple, the gameplay is not complicated, and it's fun! Others have described the gameplay but I cannot emphasize enough how much fun it is to find a new-to-you concept. This one employs a rondel to determine which and how many fruits you may collect. I think that ages 6 and up would enjoy this game. For a child, it would sharpen counting and matching skills plus, of course, the concept of taking turns.

If you would like to further explore the world of board gaming beyond Monopoly, Scrabble and Life, then check out boardgamegeek (.com). It's a whole community of gamers, very friendly, with a huge database of just about every game known to man. We've found it's much more fun to play games in the evening than to be glued to the TV.

A finca is Spanish term referring to a piece of rural/agricultural land typically with an cottage or similar building, often used as a holiday home. In the game Finca, this theme brings players to the island of Mallorca, where they're growing and delivering fruit.

The primary mechanic of the game is a rondel, represented in the game by a thematic windmill, on which players will place their farmers to collect fruit. By advancing your farmers on the rondel, there's opportunity to maximize your production of oranges, lemons, figs, almonds, grapes, and olives, and to collect the donkey tokens which you'll need to deliver your fruit to the Mallorcan fincas. In so doing there are also ways to get bonus points by making deliveries of different sizes, and getting majorities with fruits in certain locations, so careful tactical play will be rewarded.

Finca was a Spiel des Jahres Nominee 2009 and has been nominated for and won several other awards, and it's not hard to see why. The light farming theme is very accessible, and the simple pick-up-and-deliver mechanism integrated with a rondel is easy to grasp and yet gives opportunities for clever play, despite some luck. Arguably best with 2 or 3 players, it's a highly elegant and easy to learn game, with lovely components, giving it strong potential as a popular gateway game. - EndersGame @ BGG
