The Farming Game
|Publisher||Weekend Farmer Company|
|Suggested Age||10 and up|
Similar to Monopoly, but instead of buying real estate, players acquire plots of land and plant a variety of crops in the hopes that the harvest will pay out big. However, with each harvest comes the unavoidable cost of doing business (fertilizer, equipment breakdown, purchasing new seeds, labor problems, etc.). The first player who has a total net worth (including land, equipment, livestock, etc.) of $250,000 becomes a "Full Time Farmer" and wins the game - thus getting rid of the time-consuming player elimination aspect of Monopoly.
