TIPS and TRICKS
The fun part about playing WEED the game is that it’s different every time. Here are some strategies to increase your chances of getting the most money in the game.
- Buy as many seeds as you can early in the game. Seeds have a higher return than buying plants ($100 worth of seeds can turn into 5 plants which would cost $500).
- Late in the game – buy plants instead of seeds. To convert seeds to plants – you have to land on the right square. You don’t want to get to the end of the game with seeds – they are not worth anything.
- Always buy a prescription – it will keep you out of jail.
- If you can afford it – pay the $2000 to get out of jail so you can get back to the game.
- Spend the $2000 limit in the Farm Store every time you can.
- Don’t give up – it can take 10 extra rolls to end the game when someone gets close to the Dispensary. Keep playing hard – you can still win the game.
- Lots of bad stuff can happen in the game but it does not always determine the outcome. You can lose everything on one turn and still wind up growing a ton of plants for lots of cash. There’s always hope.
