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® has finally come to Mac! Find out why The Farming Game® is so popular with board game players, and has received rave reviews from schools, teacher's associations, and farming bureaus.

• 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.

  1. Not your usual board game adaptation
    by TJPride, - Nov 17th 2012

    Most board games just display a game board and have your player run around it - basically, the exact same thing all over again. The Farming Game - Software Edition is different. It gives you a full 3D farm to place you crops, equipment, and buildings on, as well as dozens of animated sequences ranging from harvests to special events such as volcanic eruptions. Certainly worth the price tag of $19.99.

  2. Great Board Game
    by Franklin Pride, USA - Nov 14th 2012

    The simple fact is, it's hard to appreciate this type of game if you haven't either played the original board game or played a board game conversion before. Simply put, it's a fun game to play with the family, not necessarily alone.
