Tips for leveling up fast!
Here’s what I did to level each of these games quickly to finish my horseshoe pit. I had already played most of them in the past so there was more experience required for me to level. Keep in mind that most of these tips factor in that you won’t be continuing to play these games and you might use up your ‘real money – in game cash’ stores. THESE ARE ONLY SUGGESTIONS! Play this way or by your own strategy. There is no time limit on building the Horseshoe Pit, so you don’t need to rush. I wanted to get you the most information as quickly as possible, without spending real cash on it, so the following ideas/tips helped me. Good luck and have fun with those other games if you get a chance!
Beginners: Plant short term crops and pick them up as soon as they are ready. Collect all free animals and sell them. Ask friends to post collections, high sale priced items from their easter basket, tuscan wedding, storage cellar, etc. Collect everything you can and sell it. You’ll get those 200 plots in no time!
Advanced: Use your upgraded plow, seeder, and harvester on short term crops. If you have any farm cash left, you can use the crop plane to make them done instantly.
Beginners: Click on jobs to do them and go to the fight tab and try robbing to use up your stamina quickly.
Advanced: Go to Bangkok or Moscow to find high energy jobs and do those. Use up your stamina as well! Use an energy pack from a friend. Buy another energy pack or 2 with any reward points you have (10/pack).
Beginners: Make fast recipes and don’t worry about decorating.
Advanced: Use your upgraded stove(s) to quickly start high point recipes (usually the ones way to the right that take the longest). Delete it, make it again, delete it, etc. You’ll get there. (Fast: Mystical Pizza!)
Beginners: You’ll have more money than you need to get past level 5, so don’t worry about it at all. Click ‘Check or Call/ Call any’ whenever your turn comes up. Keep your sound on so you hear the little bell when it’s your turn and you can multitask. I did all 5 levels in about 2 hours .
Advanced: Couldn’t tell you.. I’m not a Poker person. If there is anything for speed, using real money or something to help you level faster, go for it.
Beginners: Plant fast growing fruit in your plots, go to islands and click around. Think minesweeper and try to find those treasure chests!! Ask friends for energy pack and fruit.
Advanced: Trade in your collections (this did it for me as there is now a better feature for these). Go dig around and you should get this one in a few minutes.
