I love the way Mayday brands these replacement pieces... 90% of them are obviously, unequivocally Agricola bent. These pieces really liven up the game. Along with the animeeples, you'll actually feel like you're farming crops and eating food... not farming discs and eating cylinders. Very nicely made set!
Let's be honest...if you're looking at buying the animeeples set you won't need much convincing from me. Agricola's little wooden disks are just plain terrible. It's unbelievable how much life these wooden tokens breathe into the game! I couldn't possibly imagine going back to using disks and cubes. You HAVE to get these! Enjoy!
This is really a must have for Agricola. It makes the game much more visually appealing and easier for beginners. In my opinion, this is even more important than the animeeples, but really, you should buy both. I keep all my meeples in a little plastic bin I bought that fits in my Agricola box. Just do yourself the favor and buy this. You will not regret it.
