Unlocking New Levels in Farm Heroes Saga | Roadblock!

After you’ve finished Farm Heroes Saga level 40, you’ll get stuck on a Roadblock! This Roadblock will keep you from continuing until you’ve cleared it. If you can’t figure out how to unlock more levels in Farm Heroes Saga, come check out our guide to Roadblocks!

Farm Heroes Saga Roadblock Guide

Okay, those of you who are veterans of other King games (Candy Crush Saga players, represent!) know what this screen means. It means you’re at the end of the episode, and so you’ve got to:

  • Pay money (usually $0.99)
  • Bug 3 of your friends
  • Play 3 super-hard Mystery Quests

But, wait… our options are different now:

  • Ask Friends
  • Play on for 9 Gold
  • Wait a few days

Ask Friends, that one fits – that’s the one where you can log into Facebook and then bug everyone on your friends list incessantly until they let you have help.

But what’s this about Gold? That seems like a new option. Well, sadly, it isn’t – Gold in this game costs actual money. As of now, it costs roughly a dollar for 10 gold. That’s pretty much the same amount Candy Crush Saga wants you to pay.

So how do we play mystery quests? UPDATE: In February 2014, King added the option to just wait out the roadblock. In my case, after level 100, I had to wait four days. After that timer was up, I could just move on without paying or bugging friends, yay! Of course, this meant I couldn’t play for half a week, boo!

On the upside, Farm Heroes Saga does give you some free gold when you start, so as long as you save it, you shouldn’t have any trouble here. If you want to play this game for free and not have to wait, don’t spend your gold on anything except these roadblocks! Just for starting this game, I had about $10-15 worth of gold in my account, which means that I can play for a good long time as long as I save it for when I really need it.

So that’s the story of Farm Heroes Saga roadblocks – they’re either costly, patience testing, or you have to bug your friends, sadly. Save your gold and you’ll be fine, though!

    Agent86 (is there also Agent99?): I’ve only been playing Farm Heroes (FH) for about a month on Desktop/Facebook & am on level 82 which means I’ve already crossed several Roadblocks (RB’s). I refuse to pay + only have few gold pieces anyway + don’t have any Friends to bug. Here’s my take on advancing past RB’s w/the 3 above criteria = → Wait it out for about 5-6 days w/o playing the game. Like Candy Crush the Tooth Fairy will eventually grant a pass across RB’s w/o payment after a waiting period. Only exception is if you have the “money” [gold] to pay past RB’s, you are expected to pay (Tried to wait it out on “Papa Pear” w/o success). But, w/o enough money you will be granted access if you wait it out, just like Candy Crush, w/o Friends, and w/o having to complete a mystery quest … at least this works with: Desktop, FB, Google Chrome. Test my theory.

      Hey Spongemonkey, welcome to WOTS!

      I am contractually obligated to say that my agent86 does have an agent99, and she’s cuter than Barbara Feldon.

      I have noticed these “helpful” animals/fairies/and so on in some of these games – they’re new additions, to be sure, and I’ve only found that they’ll come to help me the first few times I get stuck. Past that point, I’m outta luck.

      That said, on the mobile versions of Farm Heroes Saga, they just added a 4-day timer for roadblocks. That means that you don’t have to pay or anything to get past them anymore, or even play weird mystery quests (like in Candy Crush and Pet Rescue)! Just wait out the timer and you’re good to go. I took a screenshot of one I encountered this weekend, but haven’t had a chance to update the article.

    Farm Heroes is the first time I’ve played a game like this and I have managed to reach level 85 and the roadblocks. I thought I would earn more gold as I went along but I was obviously wrong. Is there any way to start the game over now that I know kinda what I am doing? And is there anywhere you can find people to be Friends just for this game? I don’t want to have messages sent to family and friends that don’t even know what this game is (I am new to Facebook also). And finally, I read somewhere that you can send yourself lives and use them later. Do you know how that is done? Thanks.

      Hey Lynn!

      If you have been playing on your phone and haven’t hooked the game up to Facebook, I think you can reset your progress from the settings menu in the app. I’m not sure that it is possible to reset if you’ve been playing on Facebook, or if you’ve logged the game into Facebook from your phone/tablet. They back up your progress to Facebook, and I don’t think they make it easy to wipe the progress out.

      That said, it is possible to play without gold – Roadblocks now just take time to get past, and your free boosts charge over time. It’s just going to take more patience.

      I’m not aware of a way to send yourself lives and use them later. I know friends can send you lives if you request them via Facebook.

      As far as Facebook friends go, you could try checking out King’s Facebook page. Sometimes I see folks posting there looking for new friends for particular games. We’ve been thinking of setting up a “Without the Sarcasm gaming friends” page, but haven’t quite gotten around to it yet. It’s also hard to drum up interest on Facebook, since it takes a lot of likes to get any sort of traction.

    This is a trick people used in Candy Crush as well. Just be careful! Some people have reported that they changed the date and it screwed up other parts of their phone (ie, alarms and reminders) or that it made other timers take a lot longer (ie, having to wait a month for a new life). I don’t do this personally, but I know some people who do and have had great success.

    Hey Sunand!

    I can’t be sure as I’m nowhere near that level, but it sounds like you’re at the end of the levels King has created for the game so far. If that’s the case, you’ll just have to wait until they make more!

  • agent86ix

    If you don’t have Facebook friends to help you, you can either wait until the timer runs out or you can use some of your gold (or buy more) to get past the roadblock.

      I feel so stupid lol. I wasted my lives playing the Rancid unlock levels instead of using my gold bars >.<

    The road blocks can be removed for free, no bugging FB friends. If you get to the Rancid Racoon levels, and clear them with 3 stars or about 140% a set of keys appear! and the truck drives off leaving the way clear to continue.
