How I Use It
I think you could use this game in a business game to understand things like interest and savings. You could also use this game in lower grades to learn matching, or it could be an intro in rural schools to younger children in aspects of managing a farm. It's difficult though to shoe horn this into a class. It does not directly relate to a class so the ideas at the beginning are things that try to shoe horn it in a class
My Take
I think the game is ok and it could get addictive, but it is not a game that directly relates with many aspects of a child's education. You can learn some financial aspects like interest, and it does teach some aspects of hard work. It could also be used to teach matching as there is an aspect of matching three crops in a row. Overall, its a game that is fun as has some learning quality, but it would be hard to use in a class
