FarmVille is a real-time farm simulation Facebook application. The game allows you to manage a virtual farm by planting, growing and harvesting your virtual crops, trees, and livestock. Since its launch in June 2009, FarmVille has become the most popular game application on Facebook with 63.7 million players as of November 2009.
Over 60 million players in less than 6 months should tell you something! This game is very addictive. My facebook news feed is filled with FarmVille tips and I’m sure yours is too. It’s not easy to find Farmville cheats on Facebook, but as more people are getting addicted to this game more and more cheats and tricks are being exposed.
One of the most important things in Farmville is the crops. You will have to select the crops that have the highest potential. You will need to consider how long the crop takes to grow and how much you can get for harvesting it. As you can guess there is some math involved here.
Another thing to consider is the farm layout. Will you harvest the same crop for your whole farm or will you divide it up with several different kinds of crops? Will you bother with trees and animals or just stick with growing? Theses are major decisions and will affect your outcome dramatically. It’s important to consider the layout of the farm before starting in case you make a mistake and can’t sell something.
Some plants don’t give you XP when you harvest them. These are usually crops with very quick grow time. They might be tempting to get some quick cash, but you should avoid these at all costs as it will get you nowhere in the long run.
Another tip is to plant crops such that it will be convenient for you when you harvest them. For example, if you play Farmville everyday at 12:00, plant a crop with 24 hour grow time. If you play twice a day get plants with 12 hour grow, etc.
The daily raffle is a good way for you to win some extra coins. Being a raffle it is entirely random so you can’t rely on this for a steady source of income.
Be sure to help your neighbors when they ask and send them gifts too. This will benefit both parties. You need so many neighbors to unlock all the items so this is important! Invite all your friends or search online for more friends to add.
