Never heard of Farm Town, but then I don't use Facebook. I do play on a game site called Marapets which I can't seem to stay away from. I am using it now as a matter of fact

Actually, you CAN! My character has eight pairs. It can only wear five of them though as they don't allow male characters to dress in female things and vice-versa

I don't know about games online except for those I play on Neopets. I know all about addiction. However I'm glad I left Facebook when I did about 2 -3 months ago. Apparently there are phishing scams going on and today I'm reading that the site has bewen hacked

Neopets is a virtual world with several hundred games. You have pets to feed and play with, homes you can furnish, shops to sell things from, a trading post, auctions - there is currency, neopoints which you earn by playing games and selling things in your shop.. There are many different lands and many different pets. It's quite elaborate and really fascinating.

I'm addicted to yoville & word blocker on facebook - I don't get on to facebook that often anymore but when I do, I can't help myself. There are also a few games on pogo & king that I can't help myelf with either.

I have had a look at Yoville but haven't really played that one yet but my cousin said that it is a really could game to play and havent heard of word blocker but will go check it out
• Australia
13 May 09
I think it's called word blocker - it could also be called word cube but it's letters in a big cube & you need to get rid of the whole block by making words out of it.

I do but not that often, I joined a similar website as Facebook, and we've got a game called houses and gardens. You can live together in the virtual house to earn money , of course virtual money. And you can grow vegetables, while others can steal it and sell it. But as your grade rise, some food has an anti-steal hour of 1 or 4, and some precious plants, like Panax are not allowed to steal the last one. And now we can breed pigs, chickens and cows there. So funny. When the game first started, some of my friends will steal vegetables at midnight and will change their signature: A's potatoes are gonna ripe in 20 mintues.... Really crazy.

I don't know what Farm town is but I do became addicted at online games. At facebook, I usually play, pet society, mafia wars etc and honestly I just got addicted to them. There will be a time that I would tell myself I would stop playing after 10 minutes then after reaching it I would extend xD

Hi Msmell, LOL the reason I have been away for so long is because of the games on Mafia and reading this has just reminded me to go and harvest my crops, sunflowers and potatoes should both be ready and perhaps a few fruit trees, I haven't been playing long but it is Ellies farm if you want to request as a neighbour but for some reason it is very slow for me and even when I accept someone it doesn't always appear for some reason. Have fun playing. I play Mafia more than any game though. Huggles. Ellie :D

I also love playing Farm Town. I didn't join when the first person asked me to, but since starting, it has really caught on with me! I keep thinking I'll have enough to buy a house one of these days. I also play games on Pogo. My husband's nephew got me hooked on that site. It is a good place to play some very good games. You can play some for free or pay a fee to play them all. A good site.

Yes I have been addicted to Bejeweled which is also a part of Facebook and even when I always get the top score I just won't get tired of it and always play it. I play it again and again and everyday. I always like it and I must admit I am already an addict with the game.
@msmell (1378)

Oh yeah I used to play bejeweled along time ago we had it downloaded on the computer but haven't played it through facebook yet but have seen the app for it there so will have to go and play it soon coz yeah it is a really good game to play

I am in Facebook but I don't log in very often so I am not too knowledgeable when it comes to the games. I have some games that were emailed to me that I sometimes play but I wouldn't say I'm addicted. As far as online games, no, can't say that I do, I better not get started because everyone is saying how addictive they are! I'm really boring; I like to play Solitaire on the computer!

I've become a professional farmer. I'm on that stupid farm every day now, planting, seeding, harvesting you think I get paid for going there. It's fun and I enjoy it exept my computer is slow so it takes a while to do everything.

Hey Missy, Tell me about it I too am there everyday, FarmTown is open on my browser all day but I too find that it does lag a little as well must be because it has so many people playing it now.

Yeah... actually I am sort of addicted... It is the first time that I play a game online... But I have been playing it everyday for 14 months. It is call "Travian" And it is a real mongrel of a game... where the bullies do really well and the nice people finish last... or rather... they give up and leave the game. As I am a nice guy... I view it as a personal challenge to beat those bullies at their own game. I deleted 3 times in disgust. And now I am trying again for the fourth time. This is not just any game. One game last 12 months... if you survive 12 months against the bullies. And you have to be there everyday. You cannot just say "Oh! I don't have time to play today"... or "I'll go away for the weekend". The bullies love it when you go away. That's when they steal everything you got. The top players in the game are online 18 hours a day for 365 days.

Yeah I have played that one too but only once because if you join up at it FarmTown give you 660coins for joining so i joined played for about 10mins and that was it haven't had time to go back and play it again but you have made it sound very interesting so I might have to go and check it out again ..... That is all I need to be addicted to 2 games on Facebook I will never get anything done...... Good Luck with the bullies Aussie hope you kick their butts :)

I play EverQuest and yes, I've been spending alot of time there...so much that MyLot has fallen behind. I'm trying to find a happy medium to everything I like to do but it isn't easy. Those games can become very addicting. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

EverQuest not sure i know that game but I can totally relate to what you are saying since I started playing this online game I havent had time for the other things that i used to enjoy doing online but now I am trying to pull myself away and getting back into the others

Hey there! I've not heard of Farm Town but it does sound like something I could get addicted to! I play a lot on King.com which is a gaming website that has lots of different games. There are few games in particular on there which I just have to go and play on a couple of times a day! It's quite bad as I should be revising for my exams at the moment but I can't help but get distracted!
@msmell (1378)

Yeah it is bad coz you know that you should be off doing something else but you just think to yourself that I will just check it and you get stuck playing the game and the time slips away from youthanks for you reply

I joined Facebook mostly for the games. And yes, I think I have every single farming related one bookmarked. I am addicted to farming games for some reason. Farm Town is probably the best one though. It actually saves your game they way you make it, where Farm Ville doesn't and I loose crops because the trees get moved around all the time. I also have Barn Buddy, Sunshine Ranch and Farm Pals too, oh, and I just joined something called Calvin's Coconut Island as well. i do use other games there as well, as lets face it, once you plant your crops, it is just a waiting game and the time waiting is better off spent doing other things, like MyLotting.
