    The FAQs shows 40 levels/85 games but there is no limit to the number of games that can be played. :p
    One bonus is that this event is a day longer than most events. :music:
    We each receive one free Lantern to try out the game. :inlove:

    The seeds can only be planted in the Main, Glade and Meadow fields but drops come from these three fields, the three Baha fields and the two MM fields! :)

    To get the CR, we need to play 55 games (54 taking the free one into account) and the requirements are:

    14,850 Firesticks
    12,150 Wax Flowers
    3,510 Lantern Covers
    Difficulty is Easy to Hard lol! :D to :wuerg: xDxDxD

    Good luck all! ;)

    Thanks illy for the thread & calculations.

    I too see 3510 lantern Covers (drops) and 2 crops to be planted in only 3 fields !!!! o_O
    But you can get it from breeding ???? That explains it !!!

    Sorry, missed that about getting drops from breeding! :p
    Also we have a breeding event starting in a couple of days' time. :)
    I calculate we need 500 drops a day! :wuerg:

    Thanks illy for the calculations :)
    to get the CR we will need around 5 harvests (after inital nuking) of firesticks and around 7 harvests of wax flowers, presuming we use all available fields (588 -1x1 plots). With water this would take in total 93 hours of event time, not having any idle times or other crop growing for drops (nor having any sleeping times)
    Drop rate per day 501/502 needed.

    My strategy:
    Baha mix of trees, plots and stables as is. Crops will be saguaro (19 hours and a bit with water)
    Mainlands converting to only fields today and putting out my longest crops (Gentiana with water almost 16hours growing time)
    MM mix of stables, trees and crops with Glowshroom/Duskshadow bloom overnight (8 hours without water giving me some sleep)
    Nuking both event plants with SG, SSG, Manure, having CR, fruitcake and white innocence running then.
    After initial nuking, I will then dedicate one field to firesticks(shorter crop) and two fields to wax flowers (longer crops). The need of these for the mill product is almost the same (225 and 275)
    After 60 hours I should have everything (cropwise) for the nmini games up to the CR so I will only then start the game playing. THIS will need a long time.

    I was never good in maze games :(

    Wishing everybody good luck and may the drops be with us.

    By the way: I AM ALL IN ;)

    Is this a trick?!:pxD Thanks illy for starting this thread and crunching the numbers! I will prep my lands and hope for the best!
    I am going to try for the CR but that is a lot of crops for the 2 lands I have to plant them on!:wuerg::p Good Luck to all!
     
  7. clonahmon

    clonahmon Forum Baron

    2 lands?
    As far as I have read, this event will happen on the mainland farm areas, so there should be three lands ;)
    Or did I miss something??

    Clonahmon, You don't miss any...
    I think sanddollar is only a typing mistake ;)

    I think Sanddollar means to only use two fields. I will be doing the same and leaving my trees round the edges - keep running out of fruit for animal feed! :wuerg:

    Although I will be trying for the CR and any other goodies I can get, I will only clear my Glade if the end is in sight and it is the only way I can get the CR! It also depends on the drop rate. If it is very low, I will just take it slow. Like buses, another event will be along in a moment! :D
    The above comments aside, I am in too! :music:

    Oh I see, Thanks illy.
    I also fond of the CR, it is really attractive, beside those EP(1000X Farm lv really good),
    The big apple is +5% drop chance not ony main, Baha as well , and most important:
    it last for 5 hr :D

    According to calendar, 26th will be breeding event. If it look attract to me
    I may breed some to get some drops..
    Since around 500/day is really harsh even for all field !

    @clonahmon , sorry to confuse you but I am only clearing 2 of my Mainlands to plant my event crops on, my 3rd land will remain with tree and pens and workshops!;)

    I have my fields full of chameleons and butterflies. I am not clearing them. During the event, I will somehow do an over night planting of long term crop to get the drops. I am not inclined to delete my stalls right now. Don't want to strain myself.

    I too like the cloud row.

    Thank you illy for getting the party started and calculating the target numbers!! :D
    Ok, we get to build a maze around Jack to get to the treasures. I am in, but I sure appreciate the free Ghost lantern.
    Not sure how fast I can wrap my head around becoming a maze designer! :music:
    Best of Luck to all you Fun Loving Farmers! :)

    nice cloud row! Y'all know I'm in. I have lots of stalls out right now for animals and poo...but those are going to have to come up and I'll have to juggle the event crops. ugh. Crops are 4 and 6 hours each. When they are that far apart in time, using poo on the longer one doesn't shorten the time to near the shorter one with just water (like it did with the previous event). So I'll have to figure out a strategy for planting.

    Is anyone else seriously scratching their head over the maze design mini-game? It looks really difficult, or perhaps the video shown is someone playing really badly and making it look harder than it is.
    On the other hand, it says there's no time limit to doing it, so perhaps it's just keep bodging away at it until you get it to work?

    There is a board game in Germany that has the same principle. Since it is only you playing on the board to get the treasures it should not be too hard.
    I think I will use some of the waiting time to play the minigame.

    Shimmer I agree, didn't make much sense to me either but guessing it will be one of those things that once we try, it may make more sense! Here's hoping!
    Thanks for starting thread Illy.

    I'm in! Anyone know how much event coins we get for each game ? or how is it like the cow -milkie thingie where we can choose the path to the most coins ?

    Thank you Illy for dotting up the numbers and starting the party:inlove:

    The a-MAZE-ing Labyrinth, by Ravensburger? I've played it – well, the American import/translation of it – and I immediately recognized the style of the minigame.

    That third game in the demo video was someone playing really badly. :wuerg: Didn't get to the rest of the video, as I was facepalming too hard (and I already knew the mechanics from playing a similar boardgame, as I mentioned earlier).

    I'm glad to hear it's not as difficult as they make it look. Seems a bit of an odd choice to show that, though.
