    Finally won, after tons of tries. Really sucks to live there, though; every year you either get civil war, disease, theft, angry mobs, corrupt politicians, or drought.

    I won on my first try... I don`t see what`s so difficult about it. I just had a lot of children in the beginning and planted as much as I could until I saw a good profit, then I got two pigs and two chickens and grew peanuts, then I continued to get more expensive items until finally I had $200000. I`m sure if I had wanted to, I could have had $1000000, but I didn`t want to wait.

    I just became the 3rd world Jimmy Carter - my peanut farm was raking it in. Not even the guerrillas could stop me. Bit dubious how the elephants helped out with peanut crops...?

    Diddie - ist just that elephants love peanuts :)

    Anyways - I could have gone on forewer making those bucks. But wait, I played a second time, building up a bit the choosing all the "bad" offers, sending my whole family to work in town only leaving my wife behind -and getting a better score in the end.

    My final score was 1640. (:
    I figured out how to end it at like, turn 15
    but I carried on playing cuz I had nothing better to do haha.
    I had $70000 one year, then there was a civil war and my living costs were $44000. Then the next year something happened and I lost all my barns, all but one of my harvesters and all of my elephants. So I gave up lol.

    haha, i like how you can appoint the 0 year old as a head of family
    also, if an adult has 10 years of education, they can do 113% work.

    was doing wonderfully, got to round 28, couldn`t figure out how to win, got bored.

    how do you win?

    and JBOXER you have to give them medicine from time to time. click the person to see their health bar and then "give medicine"
