In Demetra players act as wealthy farmers trying to buy small pieces of land. They grow crops, put their helpful servants to work and, most importantly, create large contiguous estates. Who combines and balances all of those interests best, wins the game.
Demetra is filled with tension until the last move and invites you to be played over and over again. The rules are easy to understand, but the offered choices are hard, which makes it an interesting board game for family gamers and strategy gamers alike.
