HOW TO PLAY LIFE ON THE FARM BOARD GAME Each player starts off with $10,000 and no cattle. When you land on a "Cattle Auction" square, you may buy as many cows as you wish at $500 each. If you don't have enough money to pay a bill you must sell your cattle back to the bank at $300 each until that bill is paid. Each time you pass the barn you collect a Milk-check that is determined by how many cows you own - of course, more cows means your milk-check is bigger - but so are your expenses! Market values will vary for each player as they are determined by a roll of the dice! Experience how machinery repairs, feed costs, insurance, taxes and real family farm mishaps (like a cow accidentally being shot by a hunter) make their effects felt on each player, as they do on real American family farms! Be the first player to build your herd from 0 to 60 cows, plus get back the money you started farming with and you can "Retire to win the game!
Life on the Farm is not about running other players out of business; it is about managing money and making the most out of what happens to you. It's what life is really about on a family farm! This is a classic board game, fast-moving, easy to understand and fun to play, and it truly appeals to all ages. Best of all, it is a true "family game", which to us means that players of different ages have fun playing together, at the same time, comfortably!
Life on the Farm is unique! A real farm family developed it as a way to have some fun with their city cousins, and it really does show the ups and downs of life on a family farm in a fun, interesting way!
