Why do I play games on facebook? I started playing “Mafia Wars” because my son-in-law needed my assistance in joining in his mafia. Well I was hooked, so I played my little heart out every minute that I had. In the morning before work I would go in a “do a job” and I joined Mafia Wars groups and added more and more people to my friends list and grew my “mob,” and then somebody would come along and beat me up and rob me. So I switched to Farmtown and my kids laughed at me; they said it was lame.
But I farmed my little heart out, every chance I got. Look at my cute little farm I would say, I’ve got a little house, with a flower garden and an orchard, and look at my animals. I had so many dogs (and dog houses) that my friend called me the ASPCA of Farmtown. Then my kids started farming, but they were on Farmville, so I had to join to be their neighbor and help them out. But Farmville really started ticking me off. Every time I would get my farm just right, something new would come along and I would have to “have a wedding” or “build a bakery” so I got bored and started playing Social City.
Social City wasn’t all that bad, most of the stuff I needed was stuff I could purchase and I didn’t need to rely on my neighbors and friends to send me stuff. I grew Stoneville to a population of just under a million. Then I got bored. I tried Frontierville but couldn’t figure it out. So I stopped. But then my daughter started playing and she told me how to play, so I started it again.
I’ve been playing it now for a while but no-one does what I ask!! I send them the stuff they ask for and I say, “I really need building materials” and they send me fruitcake. I ask for paint and they send me donkeys. I sent my Farmville friends gifts and said, “don’t send me anything, I don’t have time to play.” I just cleaned out my box and had 25 gifts; since yesterday. I just don’t get it. When I’m actively playing a game I can’t get people to send me what I need. Maybe I should stop playing Frontierville and my saw mill will get built. 🙂
