Game of the Week: Agropolis - on sale for $2
Having developed dream cities in Sprawlopolis, it's now time to set your sights on the rolling countryside, where farm, ranches, and roads intermingle master plan, as ever, seems just out of reach.
Agropolis is a stand-alone expansion to Sprawlopolis, bringing the same card-laying, variable-scoring gameplay into a new setting: city blocks give way to orchards, wheat fields, livestock pens, and vineyards. As before, players draw three goal cards and then attempt to place cards one at a time to create a rural tableau that best satisfies those goals. New gameplay features help offset overly-powerful scoring combos and layer additional attributes onto certain types of terrain, providing even greater depth of gameplay without satisfying the original's signature elegance.
If you ever found yourself wishing Sprawlopolis was a little less major city and a little more countryside, this game is going to fit right in your barnyard. With rules you may already know but with a look that is a little more evocative of the countryside, us Midwesterners are going to enjoy this retheming of a great title. However, it isn’t just the look of the cards that are different here. No, there’s an additional “optional” rule of a Feed Fee to consider, based on the scoring cards that are used. All of them have some animals along the bottom, and some scoring cards can have you need additional points to win based on the animals represented on the cards. For those who truly love to lose (because Sprawlopolis was already impossible to win often anyway, right?), you can possibly give yourself a higher score to hit in order to secure victory. After all, life on the farm is not for the faint of heart.
