Initially copyrighted in 1996 by We R Fun, Inc., Life on the Farm was invented and designed by a Minnesota farm family to mimic the authentic experiences they had as American farmers. This humorous yet educational game focuses on the sale of dairy and other farm goods as they fluctuate with the fast-moving market. In this game, more cows means more money but also higher expenses. Players strive to be the first farmer to retire.
Life on the Farm has received extensive acclaim from the gaming industry. This board game has won many critical awards such as The National “For the Family” Teacher’s Choice Award from Learning Magazine, Outstanding Product Award from iParentingMedia.com, and the Grand Prize Award of Excellence – Best Educational Game of the Year from Education Explorations.
Though previously played, the game box and all its components are in great vintage condition. The game includes six playing pawns, two dice, six denominations of play money, and five set of playing cards. The game board is beautifully illustrated. The rules for Life on the Farm are printed on the inside platform of components.
Life on the Farm promises hours of spectacular family entertainment, and it is a special favorite for those who enjoy learning about farm life. This board game would make for a delightful gift for not only any child but also any elementary-school teacher presenting the basic of rural life and economics to her or his students.
