It is no joke – there is a new book in the Dummies series, and it is titled Farmville for Dummies. Now I don’t know about you, but I think some of the books in this series are quite useful. They make things easier for the average person who may not be as savvy as others. But what about if the topic is NOT hard to begin with?
That’s exactly what I thought when I heard about FarmVille for Dummies. If you think about it, FarmVille is one of the easiest games that you can play out there. It practically guides you every step of the way, and if you have a question, you can simply ask your friends who are probably as addicted to it as you are!
So why the need for the book? Is there really a market for FarmVille dummies out there? Perhaps. This is the argument from the perspective of co-author Kyle Orland:
Sure, FarmVille isn’t a particularly difficult game—it practically holds your hand in telling you how to play, and there’s a limited amount of strategy to playing…Some of the sections of the game—especially the farmer’s market and some aspects of animal tending—require multiple, time-lapsed steps to complete successfully, and the game only gives one screen of text-heavy explanation for how to go about them.
I guess that there will be some people who will appreciate all the tips and tricks put together in one handy reference. Then again, if you have to go through that hassle to be a success in FarmVille, I guess dummy is the appropriate word. Or am I being too harsh?
The book is available on Amazon on a pre-order basis.
