I came into the virtual farm games as an online community through social media. I was new to the community of social media but my sister was into social media through which many connections were made to friends and people we hadn’t seen in years. There was face book social media and that there was Farmville. What I liked those online games was the seasonal promotional items and gifting certain farm extras to your friends. Certainly kept the interest. There is a way to farm the virtual farming community without the social media connections. In addition, there are other online sites where money isn’t so much-needed to keep the games going or high priced computer systems but just the fun of online games can help stimulate those gaming desires without breaking your wallet. I shall highlight some of my favorites here. Although there are plenty to purchase on these games if you don’t have a lot of friends to gift you items and to scale up on your farm. This was the downside for my virtual farm games online experience which was frustrating and disappointing to say the least to be able to raise the right crops and harvest them all while amassing some cash for expansion on the farm.

The Experience of Playing the Game:
Farm coins and Farm cash are the primary currency of the Farmville2, as players start the game with empty farmland and limited amount of coins. Experience coins earned on each task or activity performed buying items for the farm and preparing the land for seeding when plow the fields.
Leveling up or purchase with real money through different payment options offered, players advance in the game obtaining receive new or upgraded items become available for purchase in the market using Farm coins or Farm cash. Players can also receive bushes or trees and livestock as a gift from other friends playing the game.
This is great news that the farming experience here is wonderful alternative to playing by with others or anytime on a device of your choosing. I like the Farmville for the seasonal items that can be purchased to make you farm suited for fall and Halloween or Christmas all adds to the variations of the game through the year.
The new version does not work in the older version so if you worked with your farm and spent some real money building your farm this will be a disappointment for the newer version.
Unlike the older version planting watering activities don’t have to be accomplished through multiple mouse clicks but the new technology allows using your mouse in sweeping motions to do these activities, a real plus for those who are had farmed before I know this is much improvement from the older version.
Another dislike is that there are fewer crops available in Farmville 2 that in original but there is also more complexity to them that before.
Additional Things to Know in the Game
The part I like is the decorations returned in Farmville 2.
- Hay bales
- wagon wheel
- garden gnomes
Purchasable decorations also return in Farmville 2. Hay bales, a well, a wagon wheel and more showed up in the game’s first media. The rich and vibrant 3D world of Farmville 2 also includes gorgeous and adorable items ranging from garden gnomes to sprawling mansions. The new Right-Click feature will allow players to pick up, move and rotate objects on their farms as they design the look of their farm.
Need water to thrive and most complicated element of this game because you have a finite amount to start the game. Important, of course there is the option to purchase with real money additional water, so water management will be crucial how you decide to using your resources in the game or you will be paying to buy more. When these resources are managed well or are in abundance you can farm continuously if you like.
Sales of Products:
Products right now have to be sold in a roadside stand. There is a future design to have a “Village” a more centralized location to sell products, yet no functional but a nice new feature that will be great improvement for the game.
