So disappointed in the Goodies Expansion. I am an Agricola aficionado, ever since the first time I played the game I was hooked. A buddy and I play it regularly, at least a couple times a month. A while back I bought the X deck just to see what an expansion deck was all about. I found the X deck to be silly and nonsensical, obviously meant to just play when you are goofing around. I decided to get the Goodies expansion with high hopes that the C and O decks would be worthy of play. I think the problem is that the original game is so well written and thought out that the expansions struggle to come up with new and inventive Occupation and Minor Improvement cards. The L deck which I guess was created by the employees of Lookout games is again just not intended for a serious game. I am still searching for an expansion pack that is as good as the original E, I and K decks.
The new boards and the meeples I will use but those items alone are not worth the $40 I spent.
