I've been torn in the past about occupations and minor improvements. In some respects I feel like it's too much. But I have also been in the position many times of teaching the game to new players, so we default to the family game. I now wonder if that's the smart thing to do. I am wondering if the family game is harder than the regular game, in the sense that you don't have those extra cards to help get your production engine going. In the family game, it's hard to keep your family fed each turn, and actually do things on your farm. So, in the future, I think I may lean towards playing with the cards, even with new players.
