FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BERLIN -- Aug. 9, 2016 -- Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small can now be purchased for Android, iOS, and Windows 10 devices! Developed by boardgame experts DIGIDICED, the digital adaptation of Uwe Rosenberg’s award-winning two-player favorite retails for $4.99 and includes an optional expansion, More Buildings Big & Small.

In Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small, the player is the owner of an old farmstead with a bit of land. However, a neighboring farmer happens to have a competitive streak -- so all bets are off! Whether competing against one another or the CPU, players must use their wits to strategically place buildings and acquire and manage both resources and livestock. Whoever has the most animals after eight rounds wins.

Animal husbandry may be key -- but before players can start breeding animals, they will first need to make sure their pastures are fenced. (No one wants their animals to escape!) Once fenced, each pasture can support two animals; special structures (such as a trough or stalls) can be purchased from the village market to increase the amount of animals each pasture can hold. Players can also buy additional plots of land to expand their ranch. At breeding time, all that’s left is to own two animals of the same species -- and they’ll take care of the rest.

Multiplayer

At its core, Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small is a competitive 1v1 ranch-themed board game. Like previous DIGIDICED releases Patchwork and Le Havre: The Inland Port , the game supports cross-platform multiplayer worldwide -- allowing Android, iOS, and Windows 10 players to challenge each other based on skill alone.

“The day has arrived: Our take on Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small can now be experienced by both boardgame fans and newcomers alike,” says Felix Dreyfus, CEO of DIGIDICED. “We’re confident that players will appreciate all the blood, sweat and tears that went into the game. As I’ve mentioned before, working with Uwe Rosenberg on three of his brilliant board games has been the high point of our careers. We’re honoring this partnership with what some may consider our most faithful adaptation of Uwe’s work so far.”
