Does Agricola fall into a formula?
The more I learn about this game, the more I feel that there is really one way of winning, at least in the base game. If you are an experienced player in Agricola, you know when Family Growth is coming and you know that that is the way to victory, so you plan around that. Now there are a lot of other things you can do leading up to that, but each time I have played, it seems that the person who gets to Family growth first tends to pull away and win. Thoughts?
