    Bondespelet ("The Farmer Game") or occasionally Nya Bondespelet ("The New Farmer Game") is a Swedish classic roll-and-move game about farmers and farming. You win by being the first farmer who buys the castle. The journey goes from a croft via a farm to a manor and ends with the castle (UK: Stately home).

    The game features a roll-and-move style of movement around the board, success relying on having your marker stopping on the good spaces so you get crop markers that you can sell later on. Farms and forests are bought and sold by the money you earn from the events and crops.

    Though being an absolute classic in Sweden, and one of the flagships for the game publisher Alga, very little is known of this game's origin. It has seen at least four graphically major remakes since the first version. It's rumoured to be as old as the 40s, at least we know that the game existed in 1951.

    The now defunct publisher AB Sago-Konst is rumoured to be the first publisher. When they in the 1950's became, or became part of (history is unclear here), AB Grafisk konst the latter published another more or less identical version. They were followed by Aristospel with yet another more or less identical version. Since approx. 1974 Alga (currently owned by Brio, itself owned by Ravensburger) has published this game in about half a dozen editions.

    See the information tab on the various versions for details about them.
