On BGG today, the board game Agricola usurped the highest rated game position from Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico has held the esteemed position since 2002 so it’s a big deal. Or is it? I’ve never played Agricola and frankly I have no desire to play it. Tons of cards, tons of bits, two hours + playing time, and people going nuts with Fimo making their own unique “animeeples” sort of creeps me out.
I suspect Puerto Rico will rise back to #1 once the Agricola hype settles down. I’m not sure that I care that much either way though. My gaming tastes must have changed somewhat since my copy of Puerto Rico hasn’t seen the table in years and I quite honestly don’t miss it.
