No FarmVille Game Cheats Allowed

On FarmVille, Cheaters Never Prosper

Right off the top, you need to understand this fact. The FarmVille game does not permit cheats, glitches or hacks that will help you accumulate heaps of experience points or money of any sort.

If you have done a Google search, undoubtedly you have located plenty of people or sites that would like you to believe that they have cheats. Beware of these people. They are trying to trick you into installing spyware in your computer. They offer to let you download their cheats for free, but you end up with software that is spying on you and reporting back to the mother ship. This is not a good thing and you are wise to avoid falling for this ploy.

Admittedly, it is true that you can hack your money and capture your screen by using the PrtScn key on a PC. However, you need to understand that this brings short lived gains. Within seconds, the servers hosting the game will intervene and put your money back to the original amount.

If you are unlucky, you could bet banned from the game as well.

So, the best thing is to play the game honestly and succeed by playing smart.

What are the Best FarmVille Crops to Grow?

Make Quick Money

Your choice of crop to grow is determined by how far you have gone in the game and what level you have reached.

FarmVille is like real farming in that it is a game of efficiency. Real farmers have to use their time wisely, or else they will not have enough time in the day to accomplish all their chores. It is the same with FarmVille. Time is everything.

If you are new to the game, or at the basic level, you would be smart to grow strawberries. Think about it. You can harvest these little red berries six times a day. You get a decent hourly profit rate. But keep one thing in mind. Strawberries are ready to be picked every tour hours, as stated above. After four hours, they start to wither. If you are going to be away from your game for a period of time - for instance, if you are going out for the evening, or you are planning on sleeping for several hours - then at that time you would be smart to choose a crop that takes a little longer to mature. Pumpkins are a good choice for those occasions.

How to Level Up Fast

Tips and Strategies for FarmVille Profit

The secret to leveling up as fast as you can in FarmVille is this: you must identify the crops with the highest yield and then harvest them before they wither and go limp. What this means for you is that you must actively attend to your game during the daytime. Otherwise, you may well lose all your crop.

Not everyone want to spend all day at the computer harvesting strawberries. If this is the case, your strategy will be to look for crops that take a little longer to ripen before the harvest. That way, you don't have to be back at the computer quite as often.

It is a very smart strategy to include as many neighbors as you can. When you have neighbors, you can make money by hiring yourself out as a farmhand to them. The more neighbors you have, the more people there are to give you gifts.

And, as in a real farm, the more profit you make, the more you will be able to invest back into the game by tilling new fields, expanding and planting even more crops.

      I've never played this. Always wondered what the point of the game was. Good to have an explanation with tips. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks Nightcats!

      @TransplantedSoul: I wouldn't call Farmville innocent. Zynga preys on the people who get addicted to their games. At one point it was impossible to continue playing the games without spending real money. They changed a few things since then, but the games are still all about getting money for keeping people amused and giving them nothing real.

      I play on and off. I rely on the trees (whether I buy them, grow them from saplings or get them from friend's feeds) to prosper. Unlike crops you grow, trees don't expire or dry up so you can count on them for a steady money supply. In Farmville 2 they need to be watered, which is a nuisance. But, in Farmville they don't need any care at all once they are started.
