Board Stiff with Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small

I took a break from chasing powder this weekend to scribble down an article for GamesAreEvil.com about Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small.
In Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small, the goal is to develop your small, 6 acre property into a profitable farm by the end of eight rounds. Each round you and your opponent take turns placing your three workers on available actions on the center board. Each spot on the board can only be taken by one worker, and grants a unique action to the worker’s player for that turn. These actions may do things like give the player basic resources, grant them new livestock, allow them to build a new building, expand their property, or build fences to contain their animals.
Head over yonder to take a gander.
