It's a board game!

No, seriously, I don't know anything else about this game. It's apparently some kind of farm-building game with tokens and cards and stuff, like Settlers of Catan. But it's about farming! The goal of the game is to make sure your family is fed and you have at least a stable of animals and some crops left over. Game is notorious for punishing anyone who overspecializes.

Apparently this game can do no wrong. It ended Puerto Rico's five-year streak as best board game on BoardGameGeek, and won more awards in 2008 than, well, some 2008-relevant olympian. And Germany loves it; so why don't you?

An iOS version is out, for filthy Mac users.
