Product Description

Some may know the classic White Elephant gift exchange game as Yankee Swap, Dirty Santa, Thieving Secret Santa, or Parcel Pass. The White Elephant Card Game simulates this classic holiday game in a quick, light family card game. In the White Elephant Card Game you play the part of a no-good cheapskate, unwilling to spend a measly dime on the people on your gift list. However, you will be attending several White Elephant parties. You can take some junk from your attic and exchange it for treasures to give as gifts. If you "play your cards right" you could fill your gift list for free and no one will be the wiser! Each player has a Gift List Card, a list of three people for whom to acquire gifts. The Gift Cards in their hand constitute their "attic". There is one "White Elephant Party" for each card in a player's attic. For each "party" a player "brings a gift to the party" by placing one Gift Card from their hand facedown on the table in front of them. The first player begins by selecting one of the gifts and "opens" it by turning it face up. The next player may then select a new gift, or "steal" an opened gift by taking a face-up Gift Card from a player who has an open gift. When a player steals an open gift they hold it in their hand until a new gift is opened. This way a gift may be stolen only once until a new card is turned over. When a new card is turned over all stolen gift cards are placed face up so the next player may steal any opened gift. This continues until the last gift is opened. At this point each player keeps the gift they have and a new party begins. This continues until all of the Gift Cards have been played. At the end of the game each player counts only the one highest-numbered Gift Card they received that matches each color on their gift list. The total of these cards is the player's final score. The player with the most points wins.

Some of the other reviews here are just bizarre. They are little wooden pieces in fun shapes that work with the Agricola game or other games, just as described. The idea that they need to be tested, supported, etc. or else they aren't a good product is just insane. If you're the kind of person who can't figure out how a wooden game token works and figure you'll call up the tech support line or something to get help or return it because it doesn't do what you expected it to do (like get up and dance around the board on their own or something), then you aren't bright enough to be playing a board game in the first place and wouldn't figure out how to make the ones that Z-Man games packed with pre-orders either.

For most people it may be sufficient to represent their board game livestock with little wooden cubes. But where I come from we play PRISON RULES. The Animeeples force you to gaze deep into the tiny wooden faces of each animal in your flock as you weigh its life against its value for feeding your family. They plunge you directly into the gritty reality of peasant life in 1670. And while Pachelbel wrote his canon in D, Bernini sculpted his masterpieces, and Newton unraveled the mysteries of science, you will still toil in the muck and filth, desperately trying to just scrape together enough food to survive.

...oh, and the pieces are nice. One of the pigs was only half as thick as the others.

I bought two sets of these for my Agricola game. These are great. A whole lot better from the cubes that come with the game.

Great quality too.

These toys make Agricola a much more intriguing game. Having real animal shapes makes owning and differentiating the pieces much more enjoyable, especially for new players.

Made of wood, so they will probably last forever.

I thought these would be cute, and they are. My kid likes them.

But it turns out it's actually easier to use the cubes, they're a lot easier to move. And they have no up down or side -- drop them and they're right!

Otherwise the animals are cute, and could help those imagination-ally challenged.

Also, the software that comes with this is garbage (kidding... it's fabulous!)

I purchased two sets of these to go with the game Agricola. I was pleased with the first set. The animals are definitely cute looking and go with the game well. The second set disappointed me. I had two animals (a cow and a pig) that had chunks of wood missing. The cow was missing the front legs - so I think I am likely going to toss it. The pig had a small chunk off the belly. Not horrible. In addition, there was white paint residue on the brown cows and black pigs. It was clear the manufacturer did not wait long enough for the sheep to dry before tossing them in with the other animals. This was quite annoying, but I was considering painting my cows in multiple colors anyway - so I guess this is my incentive to do that. Just know that the quality may not be consistent.

I consider myself a person with a strong imagination, yet I can't help but love the tactile joy of having these pretty game pieces. Replacing the standard Agricola cubes with these well designed vegeemeeples and Animeeples just makes the game that much more fun. Having a pasture full of cute sheep and cattle is more fun to play with and look at then white cubes and brown cubes. The same can be said for the vegetables. These are slightly pricey I guess, but worth if you love Agricola.

In short, these are well made and look great and really help to bring more of a farm feel to Agricola.

Playing Agricola with these sheep, cattle, and boars is a lot more fun than playing with the little cubes that come in the game IMHO. I don't know the first thing about their authenticity or the safety standards under which they were produced, but the latter I'm not terribly worried about as young children aren't playing with them in my house.
