I played my first game of Agricola yesterday. Naturally, I'm left with a bunch of questions, but chief among them is: How do you pronounce the name of this game? Our group was split pretty evenly between "AG-ri-co-la" and "a-GREEK-o-la". Which side (or maybe neither!) is correct?
Among my group, we pronounce it "ah-greek-OH-la". Based on the fact that the designer is German, my so-so knowledge of German, and lack of facts that prove me wrong, I 'd say this is the "correct" pronounciation.
Disclaimer: I 'm Greek. We pronounce things quite differently than Americans.
I pronounce it the way they do in Dead Poets Society (AG-ri-co-la).
Say it however you want (don't insist that all your friends say it the 'right' way). If you care, the author of the game pronounces it ah-GREE-ko-la.
