This contest is less a contest than an opportunity for some reminiscing …. BUT there is some gold involved. 
 So for the sake of argument, let's call it a contest :smiley:

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is this:


Write a post below, telling us the story of your Big Farm player name.

Where did it come from ? Why did you choose that name ? (or did it choose you ?)


If your story makes us giggle or laugh, or stand open-mouthed in amazement, or just touch a heart-string in an unexpected way, some gold will make it's way to your farm in appreciation.

Even if your name has no special story attached to it you can still stand a chance in the “best yarn spun”-category, so do give it a go !

The contest (that is not a contest :D  ) will close on
the 19th of December 2018, at 6pm CEST.

So grab a mug of something warming and come tell us your story, we'd love to hear it!

    My name came from my oldest grandson, who plays in the co-op with us.

    When it came time to learn to write names, he wrote Mommy, Daddy, & Tommy; and just assumed that all names had a pattern like that... so we became Gramma and Poppa.

    The other half is my middle name to distinguish from all the other Grandmas here.

  • :D  Well I am a Queen (ok maybe in my own mind), my zodiac sign is Royalty (a Leo), and have been told a Mega B (other word for witch) because I don't put up with bs out here in the real world, hence my great name. 

    This is Mmamoriri, a rare breed of Queen

    Thank you farmerjohn22!

    To me it was very easy to choose my gamingname. Mutterkjær was a nickname my husband gave me many years ago and still uses. It comes into play whenever he needs to explain to his children or grandchildren why a certain decision or opinion is the rule of the house "AND that he is absolutely innocent in the matter", sometimes also though the decision is his. He will then say "well, mutterkjær says so and so...." He find it a cute name, and so do I, as well as all the children and grandchildren. Kjær is acually my lastname and mutter is like "bonus-mother" or the one who takes care of the house and food.

    Rules, rules, rules! - There was one for everything when I was growing up & I was convinced they were all just created to stop me having any fun, so I run with scissors, play with matches, rock on chairs, swim after eating, put my elbows on the table, do not unplug things before taking the back off, sit on cold steps, go out without a coat on, stand under trees during storms, go the wrong way on escalators etc etc etc - But, it turns out there is a good reason for that one about switching off the power before messing with lights or wall sockets! lol Lachen Smileys Smileys en emoticons



    Hi Runwivscissors I love the story, when my son was married and got their 1st house, he called me to tell me he had all the light on and the doors and windows open and was heating the neighborhood, and he was running through the house with scissors. LMBO!

    Mine is probably the simplest yet because it is my actual name. Pretty unusual I know but my grandfather named me Soozayn Angel when I was born. I have never come across anyone else called this in my 60 years LOL
