| Oh, right, Caverna!

It's good! It's pricey, but it's a LOT of game, and it includes the fancy tokens that I ended up paying extra for Agricola: comes with sheeples, grainples, woodpileples, etc. instead of cubes and discs.

The game does a good job of having similar enough rules to Agricola that you can pick it up pretty easily, while also feeling totally different in the types of actions available and play that it feel fresh. The theme is fun too. Being Dwarves, digging out your mountain, and getting weapons and going on unspecified "expeditions" from which you return with things like dogs, new sheep, and furniture for your cave is fun and a different feel.

(Yes, I bought a new board game in 2014 despite my resolution. I figured clearing out all that closet space via auction deserved an exception or two. :) )
