Economic Farming Game
Does anyone remember the old computer game Sim Farm? I haven't found a good farming economic computer sim game in the 27 years since that one. Today they all seem to be about tediously driving tractors and hooking up equipment. Oh and dressing up your farmer in branded gear...
In Sim Farm, you planted crops and tended to your herds. There were abstracted farm tasks to complete in a top down fashion. The real joy of the game came from knowing what to plant and when and trying to get the best price for your crops and animals.
Are there any board games like that? If you were to design one, what mechanisms might you include in the game?
