PLOW THE BACK FORTY ON YOUR KITCHEN TABLE A board game is a dream machine, a vehicle to create an alternative reality. In THE FARMING GAME®, each player starts the game with 20 acres inherited from Grandpa. This property includes 10 acres in hay and 10 acres in grain. The 20 acres is not a large enough farm to make a living for a family, so each game farmer must also have a part-time job in town. With each completed trip around the game board you receive $5,000 from your year's wages to plow back into the farm. The object of THE FARMING GAME" is to build your farm large enough to be able to quit the job in town, come home to be your own boss, and farm full time. If you can do that without going broke, you win the game! $250,000 in total net assets are required to win THE FARMING GAME®. The gaming track is the calendar year, with a square for each week. Crops are harvested by the roll of the dice (about as much control as real farmers feel they have over yields and prices received for their crops). In THE FARMING GAME®, there is enough acreage for six players to diversify into a hay, grain, fruit, or cattle operation. Each individual farm is capable of pasturing 20 head of cattle. If any player wishes to run more than 20 cows, he can try to lease one of the range units in the hills. Warning: This family game is so much fun it may become habit-forming!
Fixed a bug that was causing a crash when trying to buy "Uncle Bert's Hay"
Ratings and Reviews
Worth 5 Stars? Maaaaybeee :)
Here's the thing: I love this board game. I grew up playing this game with friends and family and have spent hours upon hours enjoying the old board game.
I recently saw the game of Life on the App Store and thought I'd check for the Farming Game... and it WAS THERE!!!
You cannot make house rules, but you can give players a jump-start or handicap monetarily. Aside from that, if you love the board game you will be more than satisfied with this $2 app replicating it! :)
And that is why it gets 5 Stars IN MY OPINION. I hope this review has been helpful. :)
This is a fun game. I have noticed after playing a bunch of games, if you are behind in the beginning you always are no matter what. If you are ahead in the beginning you always are.
At least that is what I have experienced so far.
Still a fun game. Improve it a bit and I would recommend 5 stars.
I will update my review when the bugs are fixed. The biggest thing is when I roll a 5 and go to collect my harvest check it'll change it to something less. Once this is fixed I'll update my review. I like this game and enjoy playing, but only when it's fair and works right.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
