Farm Wars

Quick Guide

Game Basics

Farm Wars is a free-to-play game where you compete against everyone else playing, to see who can run the most successful farm by making the most money.

Games last only one week, starting every Monday morning and ending every Sunday evening. On the leaderboard page you can find a countdown clock displaying the remaining time.

The game is played by managing your personal farm and interacting with the market. The whole action is based around 1 market with 9 crops. In order to win, you need to strategize and outsmart the competition or join forces with other players to manipulate the market. Only the savviest will make it to the top.

The Farm

Your farm starts with 3 plots of land which you will have to plow, sow and harvest. After harvesting, you can sell your crops on the market and make money. You can buy more plots later when you have enough cash.

A usable farm action – plowing, sowing, harvesting – is indicated by a red button. Press the button to start the action and a countdown clock will tell you how long it takes until the task is completed.

You can upgrade certain parts of your farm. These will give you a strategic benefit. Choose between speed, quantity or a better deal on the market.

While a crop is being sowed, you are able to apply a fertilizer to that plot. Faster fertilizers will cause the crops to grow faster (but give out less crops), whereas slower fertilizers will grow crops slower (but give out more crops).

It is important to remember that the crops collected in your stockpile will slowly rot away. Rotting happens hourly, therefore you will lose more crops the longer they are stored in your stockpile.

Every day a chicken will appear on your farm screen. Clicking it will open the henhouse. Here you can choose a nest with a random amount of golden eggs. The amount can be doubled by watching a short video. Eggs can be used, for instance, to buy boosters or a farm manager.

The Market

The market is alive and always in balance. It changes continuously depending on what the players sow or sell. When a crop is sold, the price of that crop will decrease and the price of all the other crops will increase to keep the balance.

The market consists of only 9 crops. Each crop takes a different amount of time to sow, grow and harvest. After the crops are harvested they can be sold on the market. At the start of the game all crops will yield the same profit (PI of 0), but this changes as players start to sow and sell.

A few times throughout the day a high demand will occur. It causes a specific crop to have an extra high selling price, but beware as there is only a certain amount of tons available.

The Shop

The Shop sells items to prevent disasters and to provide extra services.

There are daily disasters which could hit the farm and destroy some of your growing crops, i.e. fire and drought, thieves, pests and birds. You will receive an alert 90 minutes before the disaster strikes, during which time you need to take the appropriate precaution to prevent losing crops.

Eggs are the in-game currency and can be used to buy boosters or challenge another player. A small amount of free eggs can be gained from the chicken on the farm screen, but these cannot be used for challenges or buying shares in the stock market. For this purpose, eggs can be bought in the shop.

The Company

A company consists of a group of players strategizing together to have the most successful business. Players can only found a company once they have reached level 10, but they can always join an already existing company. You can only be a member of one company at a time.

Every time a member of the company sells crops, 10% of the revenue value is also given to the company as cash. This is an additional 10% and not lost by the player. Each company can also construct a factory to gain additional revenue.

Other

The menu bar leads to the personal messenger, the power cards screen, the shop, the leaderboard and the options menu which contains news, the settings menu, the chat room (Town Hall) and the help section.

You will receive notifications about your farm when there is something to do. In order to receive the notifications an active Internet connection is needed. The background data has to be switched on. You can toggle notification alerts on the Settings menu.
