So who was the bright spark who suggested wheating as a wonderful way to make money, collect tools and get the advantage in Hay Day? I have been on Hay Day for around 6 months and this week I’ll be on level 60. I have never used wheating as a ploy because a) it doesn’t help b) it is boring c) it doesn’t help other players d) it is not a superior strategy and I could go on and on. So over the wheaters. The brochure is full of wheat. The farm shops sell wheat and more wheat. You also get the egg farmers, the lavender (indigo) farmers and the corn farmers. You need so many other things to meet truck and riverboat orders. Variety! Then there is the one egg for sale , you click and it’s one tomato. Or the gold nuggets – Sorry, someone has already bought this. Clearly not . There was not a SOLD sign on them. What is that all about? Or the things which are already sold when the brochure has just published. Time lapse? Atomic clock issues? All part and parcel of a game which holds you on a leash. It’s their time and their decisions. You shall have gold nuggets when we permit you to. Not a lot of free thinking goes on this game but a lot of complex thinking does. You always have to be thinking about how you will manage resources, lack of resources, strategy and a positive path forward. You get no rewards for throwing your hands up in the air and having a hissy fit. You do learn the lesson that diamonds can get you anywhere. They are anyone’s best friend in this game. Diamonds will break through any barrier. You can earn quite a few but mostly you have to buy them. I focus on challenges with diamond rewards and then the game comes good sometimes and gives you diamonds in the red chests. I save them to hire Tom mainly. He really helps out and smooths things over but you have to have Tom working for you on a day where you can access his help every 2 hours. It works and is cheaper than spending diamonds on the offers of saws , axes and whatever. I never have enough axes. Saws and axes come in waves but if you are making honey you cannot keep up with the dreaded nectar bush expiration. You clog whole tracts of workable land with dead nectar bushes and come to hate the sight of them. Recently I have been extending the town and am well pleased with my beach cafe and the other decorating I have done. There is plenty to do in this game and a lot of variety. It still amazes me how international it is and how we can connect without needing to use language. It truly is a global village and quite an achievement in that respect.
