Farming Now!

There is this game on FaceBook, called FarmVille. I got a lot of invites recently for playing that game, but I was too busy playing Bubble Spinner to pay any attention to new game invites! Yesterday, however, several nights of inadequate sleep (due to the electricity problem in my building, which is now solved by the way) rendered me incapable of putting in the amount of concentration and focus required for playing BubbleSpinner. Hence, I decided to try my hands at something new finally!

My first impression of FarmVille was "BAAH"! I couldn't make any head or tail out of the game. It just gave me a small green rectangle, where I could click on several buttons and create short square plantation patches. "BORING"! I planted some strawberry crops in the process of experimenting... strawberry because its seeds were the least expensive, and it apparently took the least amount of time in harvesting. And then I was soon out of money to buy more seeds or plough more land... and so I went back to Mahjong instead on my blog here!

In the morning today, my sister checked out my farm and told me that all my strawberries had withered because I hadn't plucked them on time! She was also kind enough to let me know that I had only 3 coins left to do any farming! Like I didn't already know that! Anyways, she offered to help clean up my farm by logging into my profile... I said fine, go ahead! And then she added some "neighbors" for me, and sent me a "fig tree" as gift, and also helped fly off the crows from my new-found neighbors' farms... earning some more coins for me in the process! LOL!

With a lot of tips from her, I finally managed to get the hang of this game. And now I have over 60 plantations of strawberries almost ready for harvest. I also have a 'fig tree' and an 'orange tree', which will take a few days to start bearing fruits; and some wheat plantations and soybeans plantations, which will be ready by tomorrow I think.

My farm is still very small though, and also very basic. This is what it looks like right now...


But you ought to see my sister's farm... it's beautiful!


And this one below is Nikita's... she even has a small pond on her farm... right in the middle there! And pigs and horses! Wow! I don't have a single animal on my farm yet! :D


Sumit has a lot of stuff ready for harvesting, as my sister told me. I guess they are the ones circled in pink. It looks like he's traveling right now though. I hope his farm produce doesn't go to waste like my strawberries yesterday!


If any of you are on FaceBook, please DO check out this game. And add me as your "neighbor" there too! :D But I'm warning you guys... this game is addictive! :D

ZB said...

Kaddu said...

ashkd:
Oh ok! I don't play any desktop games other than the ones that come with windows! :p But this sure is cute! He he!

Kaddu said...

ZB:
Eh! What was that???

avdi said...

Cho Chweet. I always wanted to be a gentleman farmer like all the Thomas Hardy characters. err. I mean a lady farmer. But really no time to play :( My nephew tried and tried to get me hooked to it.

ZB said...

hehe, that was malayalam. it meant....GREAT, how do you do it?

Kaddu said...

avdi:
No time? Awwww! :(
I'm feeling as bad as ur nephew at this news!

Kaddu said...

ZB:
Ha ha ha! Well u logon to your Facebook profile, if you are there... or create a profile on facebook.com, if you aren't already there. Then u search for my name and add me as your friend. After that you'll know what to do! :D

navadeep said...

Too bad u dont play PC games...you should try your hands on Age of Empires-1,2,3...its an award winning strategy game...a series... you will understand whats addiction then... :)

Nikita said...

this is a very emotional moment for me. my farm got featured on a blog..complete with info about the pond n all! m touched :D

ZB said...

I have sent a friend request in FB.. hope its you that i sent....you r kaddu singhania right?

evanescentthoughts said...

this sounds like a cute game.. should try out sometime.. It reminds me of my fav game "Age of empires".. not entirely but just the farmers

Kaddu said...

Navadeep:
LOL! another 'Age of Empires' fan 3 posts below you! :D

Have heard of that game, but don't like playing PC games simply b'coz of the torture that my keyboard has to bear with... especially the arrow keys and the spacebar! Games that can be played with the mouse are fine with me! :D

Kaddu said...

Nikita:
Send me some gifts yaar... some chicken or cows or sheep. I have just 2 cows and 1 chicken at the moment! :(

Kaddu said...

ZB:
Yupp that's me. I got your friend request and added you. Now check out my profile and start playing the game "Farm Ville". You'll see its updates on my live feed.

Oh and you can "zoom" in and out of your farm with the scroll button on your mouse. I couldn't figure that out for myself when I started playing this game! And I thought what in the world would I do with such a tiny little patch of green! LOL! I know... I'm nuts! :p

Kaddu said...

evanescentthoughts:
Yessss! Do try it out... and add me as a friend when you do that! :D It'll be fun being farm neighbors!

Anutations said...

I am adding u right awayyyyyy, neighbour.. Looking at it is so addictive, then to talk about having ur own farm!!!! :D I have a pretty useless of-the-Harappan-age Facebook profile. Atleast it can be put to some use now. I am touched! :)

P.S. Kaddu, I think ur farm needs some cultivation. Likewise, Sumit's farm needs to get decluttered. :) And. and, and.. I like ur sister's idea of placing that one little boy right at the center of the farm ;D

Cheers,

Anu

Kaddu said...

Anu:
Ha ha ha! That little 'boy' in the center of my sister's farm is my sister herself! :D You can move her around by clicking anywhere on her farm. All of us look like 'boys' there 'coz of the work clothes! :D

Hurry up and add me then na! Take a look at my farm now... I've got lotsa trees and I bought some cows too, and got some cool gifts as well! Even have my own rabbit now! :D U can find my facebook link on the sidebar here, just above the tag cloud.
