Mashable – Yes, tending to virtual crops and cows is fun, but where’s the danger? Where’s the adrenaline? Where’s the risk? Well, now you can add some spice to your social gaming garden with a new Facebook game based on Showtime show Weeds.
Weeds Social Club launched Monday in closed beta — although the first 50 people to click here gain access — from Ecko|Code. The game will launch fully in August.
The game tasks a player with raising enough money — via selling pot — to save his or her house, a la the Botwin family from the popular show. The game will not show you how to grow pot — which we imagine would boot it off of Facebook — but it will feature a time clock tracking growing and selling duties and will bestow upon players all the trials and tribulations that the show’s main character, Nancy Botwin, faces (run-ins with the police, organized crime, taxes, etc.). You can interact with all other players around the world or limit gameplay to Facebook friends.
Nice work Ecko Code…constantly keeping one step ahead of RocaWear, Phat Farm and Sean John. That step ahead is really gonna come to fruition at the Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls cash registers. I don’t know much about Farmville. Buncha dorks raising crops and stuff on Facebook. To each his own I guess… I blog, losers play Farmville. Whatever. I don’t know much about the show Weeds, either. I don’t watch it, but I know it involves dealing, you know, weed…and I know that Mary Louise Parker is in the show and she’s hot. Probably pretty entertaining.
Well… combine Farmville and Weeds… boom, Weeds Social Club. Losers and potheads joining forces to create…wait for it… losers and potheads. Pretty much synonyms, right? You won’t see me joining the Weeds Social Club. Certainly not my cup of tea, I’d prefer to just make fun of it… but it seems to me that there’s no stopping Zuckerberg. Facebook is gonna take over the world, one crop at a time.
