I am embarrassed to admit that I play am addicted to Farm Town.
It started out innocently enough.
I accepted an invitation to join Farm Town (which is an application on Facebook) from my mother (I think) and within two days I was hooked.
It is fun to see what other people do with their farms and it can get a little competitive. For example, my goal is to pass my brother who is at a higher level than I am. All of that is nice but when I tried to explain my Farm Town addiction to my husband (who just doesn’t get it) it was easy.
I love playing this game because I can play it online with my family.
I can work on their farms and they can work on mine while we chat using the game’s chat box. I have talked more in the last few weeks to my family than I have in the last year…all because of this game. It is an easy and free way to stay in touch with my mother and brother as well as some cousins.
I can’t see my family in real life but I can see their Farm Town characters running around my farm or theirs which is the next best thing. I think it is cute that when my mother talks to me using Farm Town she always puts her character next to mine.
It is nice to see ‘us’ standing next to each other while she and I chat online.
I am embarrased to admit that I am addicted to playing Farm Town. However, I am happy that I have found another way to stay in touch with my family while having a little fun at the same time.
And, I WILL pass my brother in levels soon. :)
I can’t wait to email him when I do!
