Turf on the map
Turf is officially available in nine countries, where the app is available for download at Google Play/App Store. These countries are in turn divided into regions, corresponding to e.g. county in Sweden, each with a regional toplist.
In other countries, there is normally a few turf zones available for traveling turfers to take, so-called "Tourist zones". In these countries, there is normally no regional division, but the whole country constitutes a single region.
Countries where Turf is officially available
Turf developed in Sweden and grew slowly but surely. The most important factor has been committed players who have gotten new ones to start playing, by speaking for Turf, putting up posters and making sure Turf appears in media. Sweden is still the most active country for turfers.
When the next country was to be launched, a country with a very high proportion of Android phones and with a people interested in gaming, South Korea, was chosen. Despite contacts with people in South Korea, it was tricky to attract enough players.
At the beginning of 2012 it was Denmark's turn. A flat country where we Swedes understand the language, an easy match. People were attracted through various forums, among other things. In March, Turf appeared in a local newspaper in Denmark, Nordvestnyt. Marketing has taken place on forums and Facebook.
On Norway's National Day (May 17) 2012, it was Norway's turn to start turfa. Marketing has taken place on forums and Facebook. Newspapers have also been contacted. A private Norwegian sponsor initially sponsored prizes, gift cards at a sports shop.
In February 2013 it was finally Iceland's turn. There are now zones throughout the Nordic region.
Countries divided into different regions, but where Turf is not officially available
Building zones in the United States became a difficult project because a similar game with similar name was about to be established. In Turf, the United States is divided into 51 regions, which correspond to the 50 states and the federal district District of Columbia. All have turf zones, but only the region of California has more than tourist zones. There is no Country Medal for taking zones in all US regions.
