After owning Agricola for quite sometime, I finally got a group of experienced players and decided to use the I (interactive) deck. I just opened it, and inside the deck there are cards marked with an E, which means the card is from the basic (easy) deck.

Was that a mistake? Is it on purpose? If so, how the heck am I supposed to figure out which card goes on which deck?

The Agricola cards are not wrapped in the box strictly by which deck they belong to. You'll need to open and sort through all the cards that came with the game. The terms "E-deck", "I-deck", and "K-deck" just refer to subsets of those cards. The E-deck is all of the cards with the E symbol, and so on.

Should you need a manifest of all the cards, this website contains a complete list of them. Only the E-, I-, and K-decks are part of the base game; the rest are expansions or promos.

  • OMG! I had no idea, why don't they warn us in the box?? Jan 3, 2014 at 2:25
  • I guess they figure the big "E", "I" or "K" on each card is enough. Also, it's not unheard of to mix the decks - I like I & K together, e.g. Jan 3, 2014 at 9:44
