Event Description

Seed Trade

Seeing that you’re low on cash this year and can barely makes ends meet, a neighbouring farmer offers to trade you some of his seeds in exchange for one member of your family, who will marry his distant relative.

Seeds worth: $50

Do you accept?

In-game Effects

If the player accepts, a randomly chosen family member will disappear from the household, never to return. The dollar value of the seeds will be transferred to the player and become immediately available.

Additional Info

This special event will only occur if there are at least two persons living at the farm, since otherwise the game would end when the last person accepted the deal and left.
