Update: Agropolis is live on Kickstarter and the campaign will run for 11 days. You may either back the PnP or order a copy of Agropolis with or without Sprawlopolis and its expansions. You may also order all of the above plus a Button Shy game haul bag.
Our preview post below was published on September 25.
Agropolis is a 1-4 player (but mainly solitaire) tile placement and pattern building game in which you create a network of farms and roads. It is the standalone sequel to Button Shy's mega-hit Sprawlopolis, and it will launch on Kickstarter on September 29.
Agropolis can be played on its own or combined with Sprawlopolis if you get the extra rules and scoring cards mini-expansion. Gameplay is essentially the same in both games: on each turn, you will place down one card from a hand of 3, keeping in mind the fulfillment of three different objectives. Instead of a cityscape, this time you are connecting fields, livestock pens, orchards and vineyards. The scoring goal may be, for example, to create the biggest possible block of the same kind of terrain, or to place orchards next to each other.
The designers promise an even greater depth of gameplay than its predecessor had, and new features that prevent overly powerful scoring combos.
