It's a pretty shameless carcassonne clone, with only a few minor changes. The changes don't really help for the better, either. For example, there are now 3 dedicated followers for fields. No more can be used. No less. I feel this completely removes any real strategy or decision-making. It would be nice if they at least cloned some of the Carcassonne expansions to make the gameplay better. As mentioned, the bots aren't a challenge to play at all. Their change log mentions adding smart bots, but there still aren't any. Despite all this, the hotseat option is nice and I haven't seen a single ad after several games. My rating will surely change if they eventually change that.
The game is fun, but it has some terrible bugs that make it unplayable. The farmer pieces don't always come back to you when on the water towers and windmills. You get the water tower points at the end, but not for the windmills. Also, the tractor points are sometimes calculated wrong. It's frustrating.
I like Farmassone. However, there are some things I would like to highlight: 1. Some tiles not available at all. Maybe there should be a review on the types of tiles for all possible combinations. 2. Sometimes my farmer is not returned even though I've completed a set, e.g. the water tower with 8 tiles around. 3. The scoring can be wrong at times. I calculated it when I played with robots. 4. Please allow us to control the timer. When playing with real friends doesn't need the timer at all.
The only drawback is low activity. Most of the time you can not find anyone to play. However, the game itself is so addictive.
Game freezes after every match, have to restart it in order to start another game. Bots are too easy and it gets pretty boring after couple games.
