Caverna is a lot more focused on point optimization and feeding taking a backseat as a minor inconvenience. Agricola is the tighter design and for me more interesting to really burn your brain on. What s the deal with these two titles.
Agricola is bigger and filled with tension and pressure. What about the expansions. Agricola is tighter and you have to hit more exact marks in scoring if you don t want to get detractors.
The cards in agricola are dealt randomly from a much larger deck so that the cards used are different each game. Caverna uses the same tiles each game and these tiles don t change. Caverna however is more open ended and allows you to explore more options with your actions but as a result is an overall looser less painstaking game.
Having played both i d go with agricola. Depends on what you prefer. Glass road is a nice lighter rosenberg game with a neat theme.
