FarmVille is one of the biggest games on Facebook, but you don't necessarily have to be on the social network to play. Developer Zynga has made the farming phenomenon accessible in a number of ways, from its own website and through app downloads.

This means you don't even need a Facebook account to play FarmVille. This is great if you're wanting to play on your down time at work or school where Facebook is blocked, if you're overcoming Facebook addiction but still want to play FarmVille, or if you just don't like playing games while being bombarded with Facebook notifications.

FarmVille on Zynga's Website

Playing FarmVille from is about as simple as you'd imagine. All you have to do is login with your Zynga account, or make a free account if you don't already have one. If you use Facebook, you can use your Facebook username and password to login instead.

The game itself looks and plays exactly as it does on Facebook, only without the social networking trimmings. These have been replaced with a variety of FarmVille specific features.

There's an activity feed on the side that gives you the latest updates from your in-game friends or everyone currently playing FarmVille, letting you know everything they've been up to.

You can also check out all of your current requests and stay up-to-date with a Farmville news feed, which keeps track of all the latest developments in the game.

Use Your PC, Phone, or Tablet to Play FarmVille

FarmVille is also accessible from a Windows, Android, or iOS device.

Go through Microsoft to get FarmVille for your Windows 10 or Windows 8 computer, Google Play to get FarmVille on your Android, or iTunes to download the app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

The FarmVille app connects you to FarmVille in the same way the Zynga website does, which means you don't have to login to your Facebook account to play it.
