AGRICOLA 2016 EDITION will include wooden components for 1-4 players. It will also include a 'greatest hits' collection of cards from the original game and its expansions, newly revised and updated for this edition.
The Agricola base game will no longer include the "Family Variant" that removes the Minor Improvement and Occupation cards from gameplay and instead has players using only the actions on the game boards. Instead Mayfair and Lookout will release the Agricola Family Edition, which once again has components for 1-4 players. By removing the cards Mayfair can present a far more affordable, introductory version of Agricola for the mainstream market. Agricola Family Edition will be released in 2016 at some point following the new version of the Agricola base game.
In Q4 2016, Mayfair and Lookout will release the Agricola 5-6 Player Extension, which includes wooden components for two additional players as well as "even more cards handpicked and revised by Uwe Rosenberg"
