Agricola - All Creatures Big and Small, a game designed exclusively for 2 players! In fact, for the last year, Uwe Rosenberg has been working on a whole new version of the game.

Ordered two of these in a row "ships and sold by Amazon".
Box and instructions are in English.
Tiles are in "?" language.
They are also not in shrink wrap. Question if these are even new. Knew it was too good to be true that Amazon got OOP games, but was hopeful.
If being able to read the components is a big thing for you, do not risk getting this game.
I highly recommend this game to anybody who likes a good challenging game.
We both read the instructions first and once we started playing everything made more sense. My fiance and I enjoyed that we could each check our own copies of the rules as we played for the first time. We both felt like we understood the game after the first play through which took us 1hr, although it didn't feel that long, and didn't really need the instructions after that.
The box says 30min play time. I've played it with 4 different people now and the average game takes 30-45min depending on how much pausing occurs to think out the next move. We especially enjoy the shorter play time compared to some other more die hard board games that take 3+ hours to play because if you lose it's not like you just wasted 3+ hours of planning for nothing! Where other games leave us feeling worn out afterwards, this one leaves us wanting to play again right away (usually to exact vengeance!).
The only rule I was unclear on was the Start Character Token. I emailed Z-Man Games and received a reply within a couple hours explaining it. Great Customer Service from them.
First, it is made specifically for just two players. That is a big plus for us as we only play each other. Secondly, it plays in under an hour (most of the time we finish a game in thirty minutes). Thirdly, the rules are simple and clean. Also we both very much love animals so the theme is especially appealing.
As I have only watched Agricola played on youtube and have never played it for myself, I can't make a proper comparison between the two games. Essentially this game goes like this: You have three workers who, over the course of eight rounds are placed on the main board to gather supplies and perform actions. At the end of each round your animals breed and the main board is restocked with supplies. The idea is to be the farmer who has bred the most animals. You also get points for special structures that you build. There is no attacking your opponent although you can try and anticipate and block (i.e. non-confrontational).
We enjoy playing this game, and...the little animeeples are so cute! (to make it especially thematic, we play some mp3's of barnyard sounds in the background while playing, lol)
Unlike Agricola you have live-in farm workers instead of a family. This means you dont have to worry about feeding your family. Also, there are no crops in this version. Like the name suggests it is all about raising animals.
The amount of available actions is reduced so that there is still some contention over getting to use certain actions each round. Also, I like how borders are handled. Each player starts with a supply of borders and can only tap into the general supply (which is very limited) by using the expand action. This makes the use of buildings (which have 4 borders built in, and can house animals) very important.
In summary, this game will be instantly recognizable to fans of Agricola. But, it also will appeal to some players that might consider the full game too complicated. It is perfect for two players looking for a game where they can get multiple playthroughs in a single session.

I also received the dutch language on the game tiles, which is a real bear. The box/instructions are English but the game tiles are not.Read more
