Upon his retirement, you inherit all of his farms and livestock. Although, in another twist, you begin the game with just a small house, a barn and a silo. From then onwards, you are expected to be a manager of the farm developing and improving the farm to greater productivity and profits. It involves real time trading with other ‘farmer’ players on the market and this level of player interaction is what imparts to Hay Day an excellent gaming experience.
