The Farming Game

Product description
Whether you're a real farmer or an urban dweller, you'll find The Farming Game is an accurate description of the business risks and gambles of farming. Players begin the game with 5,000 money in debt with 20 acres of inherited farmland. As players plant crops and sell livestock, they slowly work their way to success...that is if the elements cooperate. Farming has never been this much fun. For 2 to 6 players ages 10 and up.

More than 350,000 copies of The Farming Game ("The Game Invented on the Seat of a Tractor") have been sold, and this 20th-anniversary edition introduces a new generation to the joys of muck and milking. Every player starts the game with 20 inherited acres and moves through the months (i.e., around the board) trying to build the farm into an independent, successful concern that will feed the whole family. A fun game, it also has a serious, educational side--having been invented by George Rohrbacher, a farmer in Washington State's Yakima Valley, who thought it up while trying to figure out how to make enough cash to hang on to his family farm. Up to six players, ages 10 to adult. --Richard Farr

  • I kept this game for nostalgia reasons. This was the game that killed Monopoly for me. Yeah I know, it isn't saying much, but back then (80's) this was, and probably still is a decent game.
  • Again more childhood memories. I used to play this like other kids played monopoly. My wife's family still loves it, so I do play it sometimes with them. But I don't really enjoy the game.
  • Mostly own this one for nostalgia, one of the few games I have played with my dad.

I don't have specific memories. I do however have a vast store of vague memories of me, by myself, playing #Monopoly, #The Farming Game, and #Chess.
