Product Description:

In the mid-1970s, a farmer invented The Farming Game to help his neighbors laugh off farming calamities — and to show their friends in town what goes on out there off the black-top. Each player starts with 20 acres, a line of credit from the bank, a job in town, and hopes of independence. You work through the seasons, first planting and then harvesting. Dice rolls determine crop income while Operating Expense cards roll in. Should you buy that orchard? Or, stick with grain? Or then, there’s some cattle range available to lease! The object, like for half of this nation’s millions of farmers, is to build the farm up big enough to shuck that job in town.

Remember: no two years are the same; see if you’ve got what it takes to become a farmer.

In 1979, George Rochbacher, the inventor of the game, copyrighted it, and created the company The Weekend Farmer Company of Goldendale, Washington, which manufactured and published The Framing Game.

This board game is in great vintage condition, and complete with all its playing components and instructions. The game has minimal shelf wear, but the cover is indented along its left-hand margin, and one edge and side of the box bottom have creases as well. (See accompanying photographs for condition issues.)

The Farming Game promises many hours of great family entertainment, and it would make for a wonderful gift for a youngster. However, anyone teaching the economics of farming might also enjoy having this board game as a teaching tool.
