Fairy Godmother Tycoon
Witty and challenging Tycoon game
Don't be put off by the fairytale setting - this is a terrific Tycoon strategy game! You have to be quite sassy to beat off the competition and become the favourite potion shop in each level. It's very well imagined and scripted, the graphics are bright and clear, the controls easy to understand, and the tutorial's excellent.
The game is very good-natured even though it's concerned with the cut-and-thrust of growing a business from scratch. A big part of the humour for me was how you have to use quite underhand tactics against the Nursery Rhyme opposition to carve out your niche. It's a great game of strategy with no TM elements, so you can really take your time between each trading day to review your cash, stock, marketing, upgrades and prices to try to achieve the best sales result. I found it quite challenging and it made me think hard about each step, particularly in setting the day's prices accurately to avoid a disapproving comment from the Godmother Tycoon! However, no matter how I tried I couldn't stop going bust mid-way through the game, so I had to resort to the BF Game Forum for helpful pointers. (Maybe I hadn't yet picked up enough tycoon coldbloodedness to get through it without help.) Altogether a really enjoyable, witty, beautifully-realised game of marketing strategy with a lot of replay value. Highly recommended.

Fun Fun Fun
I never get tired of this game. I have replayed it many times and it is still a challenge. My kids love this game too. It keeps you on your toes.

Very challenging and you need to be strategic in the way you spend your money.

How can you not love this game?
This is one of my all-time favorite games (and I'm talking, MMO's and hardcore RPG's/strategy games, not just casual games).
It is so well done that I can't rave enough about it. It balances the difficulty as you advance through the levels. It has hilarious dialogue (and believe me, I'm a cynic when it comes to casual game dialogue).
If you like tycoon games, you'll love this game. If you like strategy games, you'll love this game. If you want something a little challenging and a lot hilarious, you'll love this game.

The best Time Management /Tycoon game ever
I really wish someone would create another like Fairy Godmother Tycoon. This game has been the best one created. We need more like it.

This is my absolute favorite game. I wish they'd make a sequal and have been looking out for one for years.
I keep replaying this one over and over again.

Absolute gem of a game
So this is an old game but a wonderful one. I have owned it for a few years now and have completed it many times and still think it's a wonderful way to relax on a rainy day.
So the aim of the game is to act as manager in the Fairy godmothers various shops in different fairytale villages and beat out the compitition. This is a fun twist on fairytale stories it's not too dark or childish just very very funny and entertaining. The characters are a joy and the mini stories within the game add even more fun.
I litterally could not recommend this game more and challenge anyone not to love it. The only way I can fault it is that they never made a follow up or that their are almost no games like it DinerDash Tycoon is similar in gameplay but still does not come close to the fun and enjoyability of this game. I really wish they would make a sequel for FGT.

The graphics, sound, and entire concept of the game is stellar. This is *not* a time management game. You select your options from day to day, set them in motion and watch your business prosper or not based upon your choices. If you enjoy running a quirky and cute store with the supply/demand idea, original types of upgrades and advertising, side stories that will bring a smile... don't hesitate to get this one! And if you're on the fence about it, just give it a trial... enjoy, enjoy :)

Go to game when nothing else will do!
I purchased this came when it first came out, I played it and had a great time winning, loved all the quirky characters and to this date I still play this game. I too have been looking for another game like this but no avail, it is a fun time management game without the stresser of time running out on you. Just a fun and quirky game, highly recommend it!

Truly a one-of-a-kind game
I've been a member of BFG for about 2 years and this is still my absolute favorite game. I'm constantly looking for games like it. I hate time management games, so this was perfect for me. It definitely keeps you entertained. The story is great, the forecasts and illnesses are hilarious. I suggest that everybody try it out for a completely new experience away from the same old thing.
