Winning at Cityville


Cittyville
I have to admit that playing games like Cityville and Farmville are highly addictive. There are always new building you can put, new goals you need to meet, and new friends you end up making as you play. There is also the competition among friends. For example, who built the nicest looking city or achieved the highest level?

But in short, this is a game you never win. You just keep playing. And the game developers are always coming up with new ways to entice you to play more often, and even spend money on the game. For example, you can buy gift cards online to places like Old Navy, and then get some extra “City Cash” to spend making your city better.

What I have also found is there are some very successful people playing this game. It is not just some teenagers with loads of time on their hands. There are people who run successful businesses or otherwise are at the top of their profession playing too. It has been interesting being friends with these people and having them visit my city and help collect rent, harvest crops and send tourists. Its also the type of game where you cab just check in for 5-10 minutes a couple of times each day, so busy people have time to play too.

For those that are currently playing, I have found some good tips on the Cityville Wikia. There you can compare businesses to see which payout the most or find which decorations give the best bonus, or which community buildings allow the most people.

Best wishes to my cityville friends, and apoologies to those who get the occasional posting on facebook. Note that you can always block all postings from Cityville by clicking the X on the right side of the comment. And if you aren’t playing, maybe I will see you in my city soon!

Still haven’t figured out how to win. :)
