Each year the best board games in the world face off in the prestigious Spiel des Jahres (SDJ) awards. Past winners have included such enduring Mayfair titles as World Without End™ and Agricola™. The nominations for this year’s SDJ awards are in and we’re proud to announce, Isle of Skye is one of the lucky nominees in the Kenner or expert category!
The new and improved Agricola is almost here! The new Agricola launched May 19th and Mayfair is pulling out all the stops to make launch weekend an event you won’t want to miss!
It's almost time for the launch of the latest and greatest version of Uwe Rosenberg's classic, Agricola! To whet your appetite the fine folks at Lookout Games have pulled back the curtain a bit on the process of updating a beloved classic.
New Look, Same Charm
This weekend is the official Agricola Release Weekend and we're kicking things off with the Agricola base game, the heart of the revamped Agricola line. This game for 1-4 players features an updated and streamlined design by creator Uwe Rosenberg. The components are wood and the game features an expanded card deck with a “greatest hits” collection of cards from the original game and its expansions, newly revised and updated for this edition.
