Lol ZOP kept getting sick so I just kept resting for 9 days, then eventually I got annoyed that he was getting sick and stopped caring and then ZOP died like 3 times, so I finally made him a gravestone. It's a fun game, I tried this because my parents were talking about games they played when they were younger, and this sounded fun. I almost didn't stop playing, it's quite addictive.

I got 4th with 2586. I kept a steady pace most of the way with the meager rations. Every once in a while a two or three day rest was helpful. Also hunting every so often. I think the smartest thing was buying 400 lbs. of food at the beginning. I started with 4 oxen and ended with three (a thief stole the fourth). BTW, you get double points if you're a carpenter.

The Toad family 2021-06-25

We made it with 12 oxen. Fear us

Ultimate Muscle 2021-06-15

I was -literally- 30 miles from completing the game on farmer mode with no deaths then 2 of my ox died and then a thief came and STOLE ALL 4 OF MY REMAINING OX in one night. Game over.

@Reaper -- stop the game, and switch the "Game Executable" from "INSTALL.EXE" to "OREGON.EXE" in the options above the game window. :)
