MDenAh, the rural life. Nothing but vast expanses of farmland, the occasional sounds of the barnyard animals, and life-shortening, back-breaking manual labor. But Funny Farm, by Igor Naverniouk, is distinctly different than the farmer lifestyle. This word association game starts on the farm, but quickly branches out into greener pastures. What at first looks to be no more than a simple inventory of a cultivator's possessions quickly expands far beyond Green Acres—unlike this review, which has remained firmly planted in farming gags. (I'll stop now.)

The concept of using words to find more words in a chain is hardly original, but the implementation is what makes this game so incredibly addicting. The spider web-style of displaying words gives a flowing sort of feeling as you progress through the chains. As you extend outwards, new sections of the map are opened, giving a definite sign of progress.

The most useful feature, however, is the merging system. In order to encourage cooperation between players, you can merge another player's correct answers into your own puzzle by copying their game URL. If you can get a group of people all working on the puzzle together, hints, answers, and URLs will be flying around faster than one can follow.

Ultimately, the game is won by solving the meta-puzzle, which has clues in the four corners of the map, but you won't consider the game truly won until you've hunted down every last word. If you can do that, then you certainly should be put out to stud.

It's "simple" - in the box labelled "Your guess", enter a word that is related to farming. Also, the game will accept your answer if it is a little bit wrong or a reasonable alternative. For instance, I entered

plough

and the game put it in the box as

plow

.

I was raised on a vegetable farm so this is perhaps a bit easier for me than for you city slickers. Have fun!

I was also delighted to find that upon correctly entering the word

"bull",

and subsequently entering

the word that usually follows "bull"... you know...

the game entered it as

"BS"

and revealed the next section of the map. Clicking on this section because I'd run out of farming words, I found that the theme was

magicians

and that

"BS" links directly to "Penn & Teller".

Well, I thought it was fun.

Once you finally start working your way into other cells, though, things really do seem to get interesting. This is a pretty fun, frustrating game here. Don't you just hate those types of riddles or puzzles where, once you know the answer, you feel stupid for not thinking of it sooner? I'm stuck on one of the leadoffs from 'chicken' and I can't wait to figure it out (though I know it won't lead anywhere)

Thoughts on the meta-puzzle (also still unsolved for me):

There are lots of XF episodes about religious cults, but one of them is called "Red Museum," so I was thinking that was probably the one being referred to. Especially since it takes place in Wisconsin. Can't figure out how to tie that to the last clue, though.

this game is really *really* addictive-- my roommate and i spent multiple hours and stayed up till the wee hours of the night yesterday working on this and hardly got anywhere, but that makes it that much more satisfying when you find an answer.

my only issue is that this guy SERIOUSLY needs to find a new server because every other entry exceeds the bandwidth or whatever of the site. and it's REALLY annoying, especially just when you think you've foudn the correct anser.

Agreed, Allegra. A bunch of us were all glued to it for hours the other night in the chat room, it is a great puzzle game (though the meta puzzle still remains unsolved.)

I'd also add that besides a new server, I'd like to see a different technology used for the game as well, since waiting for the browser to refresh only to find out a word was wrong was terribly frustrating.

But I'm guessing the design of the game and the technology used for it was purposeful for the ad revenue, but that still leaves little excuse for the "CPU" overages other than maybe he didn't expect the game would become so popular.

The last remaining missing word that several of us were missing:

Between murder and alternative is Counting Crows. (As in a murder of crows, presumably. Shouldn't there have maybe been an extra link in between "murder" and "CC" with just "crows"? Seems like a larger leap than most of the associations.)

Also, somebody on another board has solved the meta puzzle. We were on the right track! We just didn't take one extra clue into account:

The name of the puzzle! The answer is the name of a psychiatric hospital in Wisconsin.

Truly addictive, been playing it for a good while now... Alone, which makes it a bit... harder :)
OK, I'm lying, im not doing it alone, Mr. Google and Mr. Wiki help me out sometimes :)

I'm not American (the guy who made this game certainly is), so some of the connections between things might not be clear to me - could anyone tell me, for example why the words

"New York" and "minute"

are connected? I don't seem to know any special relation... While, to make it worse, the phrases

"Diamonds are forever" and "Neil Diamond"

are not connected no matter how evident the connection is...

Also, the number of the letters of each word/phrase could be written there - having to count those atom-sized (and spaced) dots is waaaaaay toooo annnooooooying!!!

All in all, I love it, although I'm more than sure that the fact that I'm not American and am not THAT familiar with American culture makes it impossible for me - but, hey, that's a way of lerning things, right? :) I already learned more about baseball (still a distant provincial game from our European point of view :))) than I knew before - not to mention poker stars :D

I forgot about this one for quite some time. Came back to it a few days ago and made huge progress.

Anyone else still playing? Or that enjoyed it enough that after finishing it last year have tried it a second time?

After Rodeo Clown,

you're looking for one of those 2 words, either rodeo or clown, depending which way you're going!

Spending time on this game is like playing charades in a chatroom with a shrooming newscaster. It would be a whole lot better if the connections were more logically related, instead of veering off on ridiculously meaningless, soon to be outdated current event-type tangents. I fail to see what is so interesting or rewarding about finding out where one individual's brainstorming session is going to lead. Whatever floats your boat, I guess. This sure didn't float mine.

Every time I try and click on a different section it tells me that there's an error. It's starting to piss me off because i am pretty much done with the farm section.

These are all of the words I could find that relate to "On the Farm";

Cow, sheep, chicken, rooster, bull, horse, pig, goat, and ofcourse...farmer.

If you have any questions, let me know.

hi,
this is fascinating and very frustrating.

Please, what are you supposed to do on the page that comes to the left of RELIGIONS. I have "book"... and then some empty boxes. ?????????????????? I've tried everything and nothing. Not even the theme of the page.

my only issue is a lot of the answers are very American, rather than global / universal...simple things like

cowboys, baseball

, the spelling of

"plow"

and the poker stars thing...

apart from that. this is awesome, dificult, and addictive

What is the correlation between

counting crows and murder?!?!

The only thing I can think of is the Incubus album. I'm just lost. I found both of them through separate branches, but seriously. I want to know that one.

*A Murder of One* was a song on the Counting Crows album "August and Everything After."

Also, the Murder of Crows is a group of crows. Like a gaggle of geese.

In the finished puzzle, you are missing the link to "Viagra" on the "drugs" section. The answer is Niagara. Figured that one out on my own :P

Does anyone know of any more games like this one?? I'm nearly finished and its VERY addictive!

[Edit: The good news is the author of Funny Farm has been working on a 'level editor' of sorts to create fresh new games just like this with. The bad news is that he's been working on it for years. Hopefully he'll finish some day. I'd like to play a new one, too! :) -Jay]

After playing for one hour, I was stuck and trying to find help here. And some of the words cooled me off of otherwise addictive concept.. Come on, 'KFC' connected to 'chicken'?! Well there ARE some things other than North America. in the world.. What would mean to YOU, if I say he should have put Gavrilović salama in there... (:-))
Anyhoo, very interesting concept and I hope the author will manage to make his plan to put an editor in there...
