Central Europe, around 1670 A.D. The Plague which has raged for centuries has finally been overcome. The civilized world is revitalized. People are upgrading and extending their simple wooden houses. Fields must be plowed, sowed, and harvested. People are living off millet gruel, bread, and vegetables. The famine of the previous years has also encouraged them to eat more meat (a habit that we continue to this day as our wealth is growing). In the end, the wealthiest player wins. Interestingly enough, animals that you do not eat contribute to your wealth. And now: off to the pastures, off to the stables: life at a farm never has been as exciting!
Almost 10 years after its original release, it was time to revisit this classic and give it a much-deserved overhaul: fresh art, updated cards organized in well-balanced decks, and many minor improvements (no pun intended) on almost all components.
