    14th of August 2019 - 21st of August 2019

    Event Crop: Bald Cypress Time: 5 hours Plantable on the event playfield only!

    For this event, you will require some regular tools from your Barn:

    Wood boards, Saws and Scissors.

    During the event, these tools will drop more regularly. You will receive them when harvesting your crops on the event playfield and when harvesting your stables and workshops on the 3 main lands!

    Event Items: Sailcloth: Handed out as task rewards. Can also be purchased in the Event Shop.

    Tree Logs: Handed out as task rewards. Can also be purchased in the Event Shop.

    Mast: Handed out as task rewards. Can also be purchased in the Event Shop.

    Note: No Crafting Buff effects the event plants (Pumpkin jam, Carrot-apple chutney or Crop Buffs won on the Farmwheel), only Fruity Pancakes and EP Buffs effect this playfield.

    Clicking on the Event Building will open the Event Layer: You need to deliver Goods to the 4 buildings. Click on the Building to see the requirements/rewards for that level.

    Each building will have 4+1 tasks to be fulfilled. After the first 4 tasks are fulfilled, there will be a repeatable task for each of the buildings which users can continue to contribute to, to earn Gear Coins until the event ends.

    Event Requirements:

    Building 1
    2,150* Bald Cypresses
    195* Scissors
    225* Rabbits

    Building 2
    225* Goats
    4,050* Wood Board
    900* Saws

    Building 3
    225* Sheep
    20* Sailcloths
    40* Tree Logs

    Building 4
    5* Masts
    225* Pigs
    30* Jewels

    For CR and giver items
    = 485 Gear Coins

    If we complete all tasks,

    We'll get 75 + 45 + 90 + 120= 330 Gear Coins. 485 - 330= 155 gear coins will be missing.

    So, we'll have to repeat the 5th levels.

    Good luck to everyone!!:) And Thank You elRe.:):inlove:

    Thanks Sarah for the start and overall numbers.

    Even doing level 5 twice on all buildings (+110 Gear Coins) isn't enough to get the CR and givers..

    My summary for this event:

    Requirements - beyond being reasonable
    Rewards - underwhelming
    Overall qualification - crap

    My strategy:

    - visit market to add more CC to the farm balance
    - grow event crop on event field with 4x4 fields, without applying water or manure
    - boycot any task donation
    - collect any extra drops
    - collect an extra 3 EP + 4 CC + 3 TEP for every event crop grown

    Event easily done with a smile.

    Yeah, I'm thinking I'm not doing this one, either. I don't have the real-life time to donate and I generally dislike events where we have to use the special field.

    Thank you SahraB and Habalala for doing the hard work. ;)
    I have to agree with your sentiments Habalala! xD

    I may just see how many crops I can grow without over-exerting myself. I am enjoying popping in two or three times a day and not worrying if I don't harvest everything as often as I can. I'm chilling. Probably won't bother with the CR et al, just cherry pick those prizes that appeal! :music:
    Good luck all in doing whatever you like! :inlove:

    Thank you SahraB, and everyone. I love using the event playfield, so of course I'm in....but will play the light version. I don't have the jewels, and low on some of the other requirements so my current plan is to grow the crops, collect some gear coins to spend in the shop. I love the beautiful playfield, and it looks like fun. Good Luck to everyone, hope you get some good prizes. :inlove:

    Thank you SahraB, elRe for putting those numbers out there and to habalala for making it easy for me to understand how easy this one is... to ignore.

    Overly complicated, unreasonable amounts, underwhelming returns, it's the event clean sweep of everything I avoid when logging on :p

    Will do some crops, but not going to stress over finishing. Think I will just pick out prizes that interest me. Just too much to do for one small field. Best of luck to all doing the event. :)

    Just remember that unless you are using a fruity pancake it makes no difference whether using 1x1, 1x2 or 2x2 fields. It just takes more seeds to plant the smaller fields. Drops are not a concern, so keep it simple. Good luck to all giving it a go.

    I'll grow some crops to get the shop stuff. if the CR is too far out then I won't fret over not getting it. I've skipped the last 6-7 events because it's gotten to the point where I can't finish to get a CR to save myself. If my memory serves me; this field is all about watching paint dry.

    At least we don't have to open each section like in past events.

    1. 200 EP for each 2x2 plot
    2. No buffs needed to worry about
    3. No need for harvester
    4. No need to buy manure as enough will be generated from the animals on the main farm
    5. Increased, time will tell, wood board drops (waiting to build the last upgrade of baha managerie - need lots of wood!)
    6. No need to destroy farms
    7. Tool drops are useful after event has finished
    8. Can make some extra CCs from requirements
    9. No "haven't got it, gotta get it" prizes
    10. Nice looking playfield with all areas opened, no need to open bit by bit.

    1. Stress......nah, won't allow that to happen again (lesson learned from the last event, was hoodwinked into that one!)

    Looking to do building 1, then 3 (buy the tree logs from event shop, gear coins pending), then 4.
