FrontierVille Millionaire’s Club

Who wants to be a Millionaire?

You do, that’s who!

That is the current amount of coins I have in-game (I wish I were that rich in real life!).

Having this much money doesn’t really do a whole lot for me. Sure, I’d miss it if it was gone, but money isn’t that necessary at this point in FrontierVille (although it likely will be in the future). You need it to make purchases at the Market, sure. But then what? Energy and Food are far more valuable as far as resources go. I wish there were a way one could buy food directly, I’d funnel all my money into pies. Just like real life!

For those of you who aren’t quite as well off, but would like to be, I’m going to share my money making strategy.

I cannot stress enough the importance of Cotton as a cash crop. Cotton is hands down the easiest way to make money as it doubles your investment in the least amount of time (as of this writing, anyway). I always keep a portion of my fields devoted to cotton production. As you can see from the screenshot, it’s roughly 22 x 5 plots in size, or 110 plots total. Let’s break that down, shall we?

110 plots x 600 coins initial investment = 66,000.

110 plots x 1200 coins (harvest amount) = 132,000.

So let’s say you save up and get 66,000 coins. You put that into cotton, and make 132,000. You’re going to have to re-stock your cotton field, which costs you 66,000 coins, or basically all the profit you made. When that batch of cotton is ripe, you just doubled your intial profit – and you already made your initial investment back on the first harvest. So every harvest from here on out you are making profit off your profit: it’s win-win all the way.

The hardest part is

  1. Saving up the intial 66,000 coins
  2. Waiting 3 days for the Harvest

As far as saving up goes, 66,000 coins is an arbitrary amount. A cotton field of 22 x 5 plots works best for me, but may not work best for you. Plan according to your own needs and play style.

And for the waiting period, you may want to invest in a “Tend Here” sign. They only cost 2 Horseshoes.

Tend Here plz k thx

2 Horseshoes is fairly cheap in the scheme of things, and while the sign doesn’t guarantee your neighbors will tend your cotton, it does help.

In my next post, we’ll be looking at my Food Strategy and how it may work for you.
