La Granja - Board Game Box Shot

La Granja

In La Granja, 1-4 players control small farms by the Alpich pond near the village of Esporles on the island of Mallorca. During the course of the game, the players develop their farms and deliver goods to the village as they vie to earn the title of La Granja for their country estate. Speed and timing is critical!

La Granja is a fascinating game that requires careful planning. Successful players must learn to cope with the vagaries of the dice and cards. The player who has earned the most victory points at the end of the game is the winner and new owner of the La Granja estate!

Over the course of 6 game rounds, players will expand their farm by adding fields, farm extensions, market barrows, and helpers. They will earn VPs by delivering goods to the village of Esporles. Players have two options to early VPs in the village:

  • When a player has fully supplied a craft building, he received VPs and a craft market which grants a bonus for the remainder of the game.
  • When a player has fully supplied a market barrow on his farm, he sets up a market stall in the marketplace and receives VPs and a trade commodity.

It is important to observe the actions of other players, to manipulate turn order, and to adjust for the dice and the cards during the course of the game.

The player who has earned the most VPs by the end of the game is the winner and earns title of La Granja for their estate!

“Good strategy game....but...”

Played this game a few times the past week….it’s a good strategy game, and I do like strategy games. Some pluses are that it has good replay ability and the theme is pretty good. The bad is that the art is lacking on the main board, it took about 5 plays to really grasp everything such as the game mechanics, and the instructions took a while to figure out. Another bad, but also good, depending on who has the good ones, are the cards. Some cards in the deck are pretty powerful. So far, the times that me and my friend played, who ever had the better cards for ‘helpers’ ended up winning the game. If you both have good cards for ‘helpers’ then it’ll be a close game, but if not, then it’ll be lopsided.
Will I play this game again, probably just because I really enjoy strategy games, and this one gives you a myriad of avenues for strategy to win the game, but will it ever reach my top 100 list, probably not.
