Agricola tops Puerto Rico

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.
