Haha man I right there with you. No matter how much I’d hate to see this artwork elsewhere, I love the game so much that I love the artwork too haha
I have the original edition. Even though the game is supposedly “better”, all of my pieces are either circles for workers or cubes for both vegetation and livestock haha
If you look at the ratings on BGG than the revised edition is better. But, those who prefer the first edition do so very vocally.
Oh I think you were looking at the avg rating?
I was looking at the user rating. It is a low 8 for the revised edition and a high 7 for the 1st edition. I was not looling at the BGG adjusted rating.
Actually the revised is #77 and the 1st is #29! However, I will say I think it is because the 1st edition was out way longer. But I have heard that the rules changed only slightly between the versions, which has caused major fans to stick with the original.
The reason that some people like the first better is because it had more cards. I played the first edition only once. And, I think that the new components for the revised edition more than make up for the fewer cards.
They are not. The revised edition of the game comes with these lovely worker meeples, and, in addition to that, it has "animeeples," and the resources are appropriately shaped and colored. All the wood is nice and chunky and a joy to play with.
Ahhh I see. Sweet! Also, how tough is this game exactly? Is it a big challenge to try and keep your livestock and family well fed? Really looking forward to getting a copy and trying it out with my wife hopefully this year.
I wouldn't say it is terribly tough. But, you can definitely screw someone over if you want too.

I've never played! The theme holds zero appeal to me whatsoever, so unless a friend has this and I play it with them, I likely never will :/
It is very thematic... So there is that.
Haha most of the time that would probably be a point in its favor for me, but in this case I'm not so sure
I understand that...

I’ve only played the app. It’s definitely not my favorite Uwe game but I felt like I needed to experience it.
I've never played any of his! I feel like the one I'm most likely to play is #Patchwork
Lol, that’s probably the one game of his that is the least like all the others. Clearly his coolest game is #A Feast For Odin
Lol, I doubt I'll ever play that one
