The Farming Game: Software Edition Now Available
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Game Masterminds and IMG reviewer Franklin Pride's The Farming Game: Software Edition is now available for purchase from Mac Game Store. The digital version of the classic board game gives players the chance to try their hand at running a successful farm. TFG:SE allows for up to six players, features a fully 3D farm, and offers a full achievement system.

Since 1979, more than 350,000 copies of The Farming Game board game ("The Game Invented on the Seat of a Tractor") have been sold around the world. Now, after over three decades, The Farming Game is finally coming to Mac! Find out why The Farming Game has received rave reviews from schools, teacher's associations, and farming bureaus, and is used in over 2,000 classrooms and extensively by homeschoolers.

  • Play with up to six "weekend farmers" and/or computer AI's
  • Personalize your farm in full 3D, with placement control over everything you buy
  • Dozens of animations for everything from harvests to Farmer's Fate (watch out for volcanic eruptions!)
  • Full achievement system
  • Try out new buildings and crop bonuses in Enhanced mode
  • Enjoy playing without having to keep track of game pieces! Save and load up to 10 games at a time.
  • Perfect for any child with basic math and reading skills.
Every player starts the game with 20 acres of farmland inherited from Grandpa, $5,000 in cash, and $5,000 in debt (the cash is a loan to keep you afloat the first year). As the year progresses, you gain options to buy more cows, hay, wheat, fruit, tractors, harvesters, and land, and can even place buildings (barn, silo, windmill, etc.) if playing in Enhanced mode. Havests may be rewarding, but watch out for operating expenses or Farmer's Fate! Those pesky insects and droughts have done in many a farmer at the end of his or her credit line. The first player to $250,000 wins!

Both educational and easygoing, the Farming Game is the perfect game to play with your children. Learn the realities of operating a farm while having fun organizing it in full 3D! And at only $19.99, it's the perfect Christmas gift.

Requirements:

  • Mac OS X 10.5.8
  • 2 GHz Intel Mac
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 120 MB HD Space
  • 128 MB VRAM

    These requirements are the designations of the weakest computer that successfully played the game. You may still be able to play the game with a slower computer.

The Farming Game: Software Edition is available now for $19.99 (USD).
