The Farmageddon: Livestocked and Loaded expansion introduces animals (one per player) to add ranching to the farming side of your operations. Whereas Crops are relatively flimsy and easy to destroy, Animals are permanent. Each Animal will provide many points to your farming operation, assuming you're willing to pay!
The goal for this expansion is to create a balance between tactical Crop management and strategic Animals. It also broadens the strategic choices of the game and adds depth without too much complexity. Players will need to make a choice with their Action cards to lean into animals, crops, or both, to squeak out ahead. Along with the animals will come new Action cards, special animal abilities, and a little bidding to top it off.
In addition to animals, Livestocked and Loaded will introduce Weather Events. These will shake things up so that no game is the same.
The best part is that you won't need to relearn the game. Livestocked and Loaded is built upon the simple framework of the original Farmageddon game. On each turn you're going to Draw Crop cards, Farm and Play Action Cards, then Draw Action cards.
