The WM-Deck for Agricola is a new set of cards for Uwe Rosenberg’s boardgame hit. The 60 Minor Improvements and 55 Occupations are divided into 5 Mini-Decks and were created for the first Agricola World Championship 2011 in Vienna. The card set was designed and tested by users of the internet portal Play-Agricola. Play there and create your own cards!
The five mini-decks can be shuffled together to form a single deck that can be played by itself or mixed into some or all of the EGIK decks. Or, you can play the mini-decks.
How to play the Mini-Decks
There are several ways to play the minidecks (labelled alpha, beta, gamma, delta and epsilon)
- To learn to utilize the decks: each player gets one deck and discards down to 7 occupations and 7 minor improvements.
Either randomize who's getting what deck or (for experienced players) let players bid for the decks they want to play.
- Or: Play a Booster Draft. Each player gets a deck. First, draft Occupations in clockwise direction until everyone has 7. Then, draft Improvements counter-clockwise until everyone has 7.
- Or: play any other draft format where you need boosters.
