Description

Aliens! Aliens!

The X Deck is a not-entirely-serious expansion for Uwe Rosenberg's Agricola. The deck includes 24 cards of 5 different types (Alien Actions, Merchants from Outer Space, Alien Artifacts, Alien Events, and Alien Occupations). The aliens arrive when the players create a Quarry; that is, when the "1 Stone" card from Stage II of the game (Rounds 5-7) is revealed. Whenever a player takes this action, they also draw the top card from the Alien Encounter Deck (X Deck). A lot of fun - and a bit alienating too!

FAQ

Can I use this expansion with the revised edition of Agricola?

Yes-ish. The revised edition uses unified phrasing, reworked cards and a modernized graphics design to deliver a more conistent and overall better (at least in our opinion) game flow and feel. Mixing old and new version parts therefore might create problems. Nonetheless, the overall mechanics of the game haven't changed, giving people with an advanced understanding on how the game works the possibillity to "ignore" these problems; at least to a certain extend. However, we only recommend mixing old and revised edition for such "professionals".
