We really enjoy this game! It’s extremely light weight, but it’s also fun! You still have to mentally play out your best approach throughout the game like maintaining your crops, when to sell seeds to get more money and when to purchase the right seeds for your animals. Once you harvest your crops, you have to make sure you don’t hold them too long, because you can only hold so many crops in your supply. Sometimes it’s best to purchase crops quicker if you can feed all of your animals and focus on making them longer, when other times it may be better to have the higher score cards, and then other times it’s somewhere between the two. It just depends on what you have in your hands and what is available to purchase. The artwork on the cards is very cute and certainly adds to the setting of the game. This game has gone over quite well at the game nights that we’ve attended and it works well as a filler game. The game may come in a small box, but as you can see it takes up a lot of room even for a two player game. The box could have been made a little bit larger, even if only 10% or less, it still would have made the difference for us. We have found that there is a very precise way you have to put everything away so that the lid properly closes. It works for us because we figured out how to do it just right, but that may not be appreciated by other owners. All of that aside, the positives definitely out weight any negatives with this game. My Happy Farm would work well across any age range to play with, so it shines as a fun family game and we are wanting to hold onto this one long term.
