Agricola Hand Generator

Agricola is the excellent new game from Lookout Games. Unfortunately for non-German speakers, there is a large amount of text on the 360 cards. Using a translation guide for this many cards is cumbersome. Making paste-ups is another option, but it's a lot of work. So this page provides another alternative.

Fortunately, in Agricola you are dealt 14 cards at the start of the game. Usually these are the only 14 cards you need to understand. This site takes advantage of that fact, by generating the hands for you - and providing a personal translation sheet which only translates the 14 cards you hold.

Instructions

  1. Sort your Occupation Card deck and Minor Improvement Deck into alphabetical order. This will make it much easier to find the cards for your hand.
  2. Select the number of players and the decks you wish to use.
  3. Enter the game name. Make sure you always use sheets for the same game, to avoid multiple players having the same card.
  4. Click Submit.
  5. The page for the first player will appear. Print it, then click Next.
  6. Repeat for the second player, then the third, etc
  7. The generator will produce one extra sheet - for if a player plays the Broom.
  8. Randomly assign the sheets to players.
  9. Each player looks through the deck and finds their cards.

Do not look at the printouts before the game. Each players hand is supposed to be secret!
