“La Granja” offers interaction and competition, constructive and progressive development, optimization in selection and sequence as well as an abundance of possibilities to bypass bottlenecks in supply and demand. Everything has effects and side effects. Despite its countless dependencies, the complexity is easily manageable. The game’s elements and mechanics are superbly supported by the graphics design and the superbly structured rules.
With “La Granja”, Odendahl/Keller developed a beautiful, new and functional machine out of familiar elements. This alone is a commendable feat of engineering.
